A few months ago I added a topic to my API doc course called Sending doc status reports – a tool for visibility and relationship building. Another tool for accomplishing a similar purpose -- that of making others in your company aware of documentation processes, newly published articles, how to work with your team, etc. -- is to broadcast your meeting notes after each meeting. Although sharing meeting notes with meeting participants after the meeting isn’t anything new, with a few small adjustments, it can be a powerful way to influence those around you.

(Admittedly, this topic isn’t specific to API docs. However, I have an entire section on processes and methodology in the course, and I think this topic fiets nicely into that section.)
