Government agencies write as teams for many reasons. A project might be too large for one individual to manage alone. Or the agency may wish to tap into the expertise of many different people, all working for different offices.
Writing as a team will always be a challenge. But done well, it can be an exciting, invigorating and exhilarating challenge. Writing teams can produce documents that reflect the best an agency has to offer in both expertise and policy. And team members can walk away from the experience with greater knowledge and power as well as a deeper sense of commitment and belonging.
This presentation offers some suggestions for how teams can work together effectively. I hope you find it useful.
All my best,
