Succession planning – are you?

In the next issue of the TDW magazine we’re running an article on succession planning, but focusing on the skills succession of our technical information requirements.

Over the last few years there has been a steady decline in new and fresh talent moving into technical communication and there are many reasons why this pool of talent is slowly drying up (all covered in the article in the TDW magazine).

This is why succession planning is vital, a clear vision of what we are doing, going to do and plan to do for our technical information needs in the future.

In this video, Mike talks about why this is such a hot topic now and will only get increasingly more challenging for technical information managers as the talent continues to dry up.

But most importantly, what can we do about it and what are some organisations doing now to protect their information requirements into the future?

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
