What is a Book!?

The trend in professional writing is towards model-based separation of the information essential to produce the written article – the Model – from the written article itself – the Book (a paperback, say). Simplest example: a text file (a Model) saved on your computer, later printed and finished as an A4 paper ring-bound document (a Book).

Writers of old were the monks armed with quill and ink and parchment, scribing a new scroll of some kind (eg a debt record to pin someone to a future repayment). More recently, we had the corporate typing pools with their batteries of well-oiled Imperial grey typewriters bashing out their business forms or letters (all still intent on pinning someone to something, no doubt)…

Then we had the xerox revolution – xerox brilliantly desktopizing the laborious and error-prone manual copying and transcription process to duplicate all coming documentation on the fly — until wordprocessors and laser printers merged the two and changed the game yet again. And then enter Bill and Microsoft and all the others to clean this up and make it turn out mega bucks. And now we have the Model-Based revolution…

Film is a very good example of this model-based separation. The script and the storyboard as assimilated in the Director’s mind (Hitchcock-style) providing the Model, while the dvd of the finished production represents the Written Article – the "Book". The words ‘writing’ and ‘written’ are clearly somewhat misleading here.

Modern engineering design is similarly analysed: all but gone is the design-in-drawings method, now replaced by a digital information model (the Design) and any variety of views of theis, each a post-processed extract of the model transcribed into a physical document eg a printed drawing sheet – or in the case of the most modern manufacturer, immediately into a finished user’s product (as in 3-d printing).

I think the current jargon for this model-based separation in professional writing spheres is Topic authoring and Single-source content.

Now I think the impact of this technological trend is EARTH SHATTERING!

Where we used to have armies of fully-employed touch-typists producing the distributed our documentation of simple kinds, fed by fewer, much higher-paid elite authors way up in the organisation pyramid, endlessly writing and altering and copying – and the massive cost of all of that – we now have a rapidly evolving and converging sea of pure knowledge and a myriad of islands of use-centred (and almost free to employ) robotized document completion machines (Book Makers).

[witness this bit of professional writing: this (book) page will look very different depending on your viewing device (pc, mobile, app) but the words are the same and mostly mine. And not a copy typist/setter/printer/book binder job anywhere to be seen! And the originating author is working for free!!]

… I wonder if the Book is in the process of disappearing altogether!

This earth shattering evolutionary process can be managed in the business organisation [Julian’s intended Professional Writings client] as a matter of Integration.

Take a good-sized sample of business-essential documentation and throw it all on a hanger floor and then proceed to #refactorize it all, so that every item of text and graphics is instantiated only once, and a rational set of completed document types to present them is envisaged (eliminating redundant content and documentation and distribution points as we go). Then summarize this Model-Based Integrated Documentation System as an engaging schematic diagram poster (getting someone like Julian in to help you facilitate this key step if you feel the need for some fresh, expert eyes on your side) and then let your establishment stew on the ramifications of this Brave New Writing World for a while… Then implement.

Julian has done a couple of these whole-enterprise documentation integration jobs before. For example, one for a leading project management consulting and education firm, who produced tonnes of printed lesson and event management documentation to support their world class educational events. The integration step helped move them from conventional Microsoft Office-based ‘special file – special document’ technology, that required repeated content for course syllabuses, presentation scripts, attendee handouts, timetables – all done as a matter of strategy to the highest quality level – each document requiring it’s own template design, and its own proofing, editing and releasing timeline, each requiring premium staff to effort and control their production in what was necessarily a flood of hundreds of such documents for each week of activity, with all the cost and inter-staff pressure and embarrassing slip-ups that is inevitable in such a system… The solution was indeed an enterprise database to hold and deliver the single-sourced content information – the Model, and a well designed workflow system to ease event production from business development thru to happy more aptly educated customers and then yet more business development – The "Book".

Another case, for a large engineering design company, we found a number of opportunities for Integration including moving an old-school library of discrete procedure documents (mini textbooks of engineering best practice) (mission-critical to have, and highly costly to maintain), each independently written and managed and distributed, moving all that to a single live wiki platform with multiple authors collaborating on content, employing wiki tricks to avoid content repetition, and opening up the system allowing users to participate in quality feedback to help the collective drive for excellence.

A wiki encapsulates both The Model and The Book. I think that the cleverness of the wiki [when properly conceived and architected and implemented] is in that, in addition to the realization of single-sourced content (a massive cost and quality improvement in itself), it has silently cut down the number of Books to be published and distributed from hundreds (or thousands for a global organization), to just the one.
