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.

From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Johnson, Joyce Sent: May 15, 2015 9:17 AM To: email@example.com 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.
