Excellent question. It is my experience that writing obliges one to structure one's thought and make clear concepts that otherwise, expressed orally, are presented more vaguely.
This is certainly a benefit, as is good, solid procedural documentation. There is the general question as to whether tech writers or engineers should be doing the work of documentation creation. To answer your question, it is seen as more work at this initial stage.

Aside from being "open" to the new responsibilities, do they see how it benefits them? Or do they simply see more work? --Milan Davidović Sent from my Yost 10 On Mon, Oct 7, 2013 at 11:40 AM, Stephen O'Brien <sobr...@innovmetric.com> wrote: > They are wondering what their exact responsibilities will be.
