There are three main types of writing models that can be used to produce documents in organizations:
Model 1. The Lone Writer, where one person does most of the writing for the organization
Model 2. The Writing Shop, where a bank of writing specialists produce documentation
Model 3. The Collaborative Team, where various writers and subject matter experts share roles and responsibilities to produce documents
These diagrams describe the process, and what can happen when documents are produced by each model
The lone writer gets documents written without bothering anyone else in the organization. But there is little assurance of business continuity in this approach. Organizational learning is not encouraged in the process of document preparation.
