At every CIDM conference, we have a bookstore for our participants to purchase books that reflect the theme of the conference as well as other industry-specific volumes. The online Manager’s Bookshelf is a collection of these books including a short paragraph and a link to purchase the volume online through Amazon.com.
There are a variety of organizations that offer education and information for technical writers. If you have an organization to add to the list, please contact the CIDM Office.
The IPMM contains an evaluation tool used in documentation departments worldwide to rate their maturity in each of the key areas. In an IPMM audit, CIDM makes recommendations on actions companies can take to improve their maturity rating. Previous organizations benefiting from an assessment include Engenio Information Technologies, Jeppesen, Juniper Networks, The Raymond Corporation, and SWIFT.
