What's the Statistical ROI of Technical Documentation? [Collaborative Post]
I have trouble explaining people of the value adds, and measurable differences, and advantages of technical writing. Is there a case study, white paper or any other doc that statistically shows the ROI of technical documentation?
This is a collaborative post, so if you have an insight to help Kartik answer this question, please add it in the comments.
