We don't use a pure Agile process, but I do find that Sales prefers a shorter 
time once the software is ready for release. I develop the documentation as 
software development progresses. I have to redo sections, but I can also get 
the documentation to them much more quickly at the end. YMMV.

Subject: creating user guides in an agile environment

All -

Is anyone writing software user guides for end users in an environment in which 
the software is being developed following agile guidelines? If so, are you 
writing portions of the user guide at each software iteration? How do you 
handle major revisions to the software? That is, if you wrote a section of the 
user guide on the deliverables produced in the first iteration, then learned 
that the software you wrote about changed in the 4th iteration, what did you 
do? How did that affect your timeline? Do you find writing in iterations more 
beneficial than waiting until the software is in a more finished state?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
