Long gone are days of technical writers merely annotating screenshots, writing FAQs, and serving as an afterthought to development. With the growth of RESTful APIs and microservices, documentation is more important than ever for both accelerating internal development, supporting technical sales and partner teams, and facilitating smooth external integrations. In fact, a 2013 survey by Programmable Web found that complete and accurate documentation was rated as the most important factor in evaluating an API-outranking service-level agreements, price, and even service uptime! Fortunately, as the value of technical documentation has continued to grow, so has the number of tools and services…

In today’s digital economy, customers can choose from an abundance of popular, well received products that have set the customer expectation bar much higher. Many of these competing products are not only aesthetically designed, easy to use but also come with professional quality documentation and self-help. …

But… what motivates our employees?
In the recent half a decade or so, behavioural scientists cultivated break-throughs in management science. One of the notable experiments…
