Task Oriented Writing

Switching from a very prescriptive style to a task oriented style is a mind shift for most writers, and whilst it’s one thing to understand the theory of something, making it part of your natural working practise is another.

Having read a few articles, and done some research into what task oriented writing is, I think I understand the basics, and have started to apply some of the principles to some of the stuff I’m currently working on. However I do find myself breaking out into the old functionality focussed method and I really need a way, a trick or hack or whatever, to keep myself think “task task task”.

Also interested to hear from anyone who has managed a team through such a transition. If you have any suggestions or thoughts, I’d really appreciate them.
