In technical writing Information gathering is considered to be a most challenging part and many Information gathering techniques for technical writers are available. In this video I talk about the use of Information radiators like clear user stories, Epics or well written SRS/FRS. Follow basic etiquette of meeting like to be on time, book a quite place. The information gathering meeting should be time boxed, an agenda should be fixed, if possible send questions prior to the meeting. Go well prepared, do your homework, frame your questions properly.
