The Surprising Power of Documentation

Documentation is the secret weapon of any CTO, offering long-term value by saving dozens of productivity hours across a company with every hour invested by anyone. Effective documentation creates a culture where knowledge is accessible to everybody, making onboarding fast and reducing guesswork and the reinvention of the wheel. Documentation first, meetings second, is the motto. Shared documentation is the backbone of effective knowledge sharing, creating a dynamic repository for collective wisdom. Build a documentation-first culture, giving your team the necessary tools, templates, and guidelines to document with ease. However, despite its many advantages, documentation is not a magical cure-all and it cannot replace human interaction, requires time-consuming maintenance, and can easily become outdated.
