About Eduarda

  1. Eduarda’s LinkedIn
  2. She started her career as a customer service representative, where she began documenting the company’s procedures for her reference. And later she started to share the same with her colleagues.
  3. Her managers realized the importance of documentation, and eventually assigned her sole responsibility for the company’s help center, articles, and internal operation materials.

Key Takeaways

  • According to Eduarda, documentation means the entirety, which includes organization, sharing knowledge, and decentralizing knowledge from an individual standpoint.
  • “Once you get the documentation centralized and well organized you end up helping different departments in your company like the customer service, the product, and the tech. Everything becomes faster as you don’t depend on people to understand things”, says Eduarda.
  • The most significant impact of effective knowledge management is the ability to decentralize information from people and create a single source of truth (SSoT).
  • With the implementation of SSoT, you will have faster processes, thereby achieving organizational success.
  • By optimizing the knowledge base for SEO like adding titles, subtitles, bullet points, and keywords, technical writers can organize the document and enhance the searchability and accessibility of the document.
  • Eduarda feels to keep up with current trends, it is important to integrate AI into the knowledge management platform so that users can get quick and accurate responses.
