    Using the Principles of Minimalism to Create Better User Support, with Dr. Hans van der Meij

    Using the Principles of Minimalism to Create Better User Support, with Dr. Hans van der Meij

    User support often does not effectively satisfy the propensities of the user. That’s what John Carroll and his colleagues at IBM observed around 1982 and how the minimalist approach to technical documentation began. Minimalism in technical communication is a use and user-centered approach to create better user support. .
    In this podcast, I am interviewing Dr. Hans van der Meij, who has been researching the principles of minimalism for almost 30 years. Hans explains the four principles and how they help to reduce training time while increasing learning.

    The new 82079 standard on Information for Use

    The new 82079 standard on Information for Use

    Creating user guides that users love to use can be a challenging task. Not only do you need to master technical writing, but you also need to be familiar with designing, visualising, usability principles, legal stuff, and good old-fashioned psychology. The IEC/IEEE 82079-1-2019 Standard on Preparation of Information for Use provides guidelines that help you create better instructions. If you want to create happier users and make sure that you fulfill market, legal, and regulatory obligations, applying this standard is an absolute must.
    In this podcast, I am interviewing Sven Ring, who has been part of the committee that developed the 82079 standard. Sven talks about how an international and interesting group of people has developed a standard that helps anyone who wants to create user instructions. Sven Ring is a technical documentation and information expert. He currently works for a Chinese wind turbine manufacturer. Sven has 34 years of experience in technical communication.
