In August, John Henderson submitted a résumé to the human resource department
of Big Time Computers Inc. in response to an advertisement in the local newspaper
for a senior technical writer. After a short interview process in which three of the
four individuals on the selection committee felt that he should be hired, Laura
Conroy hired him.

Henderson spent a three-week training period learning departmental methods and
procedures, becoming familiar with Big Time’s products, and preparing for his first
writing assignments. As a senior writer, Henderson was also expected to serve as a
technical publications project leader for one of Big Time’s product groups. During
the training period, Henderson attended project meetings to meet the employees
from other departments who were involved with that product group and to become
current on what was happening within it.

Following the training period, Henderson started his first writing assignment, the
revision of a software manual to reflect upgraded product software. Henderson went
two weeks beyond the scheduled date for completing the first draft of the revision.
In editing the first draft, Hanson felt that the writing quality and organization were
poor, and suggested extensive changes before the manual was distributed for review.
Henderson implemented these changes and prepared the manual for review. One
week before the review, Henderson sent an advance notice email message to the
reviewers, notifying them of the upcoming review. Mike Simpson, the project leader
for the product described in the manual, pointed out to Laura Conroy that the
message was sloppy, and had misspellings and poor grammar. He expressed concern
that the credibility of the technical publications department was at risk if the quality
of any of the written material that went out to the entire company was poor. Hanson
and Simpson also expressed concern to Conroy about Henderson’s writing ability.

Conroy decided to implement some procedures to monitor Henderson’s progress
and temporarily give him more supervision. She scheduled weekly meetings with
Henderson during which he was to give her a detailed status report for the week,
with particular emphasis on tracking manual schedules. She also required Henderson
to send his work to the technical editor on a chapter-by-chapter basis, and each week
Hanson would meet with Henderson to discuss his writing. Conroy also decided
to postpone giving project leader responsibilities to Henderson, but she had him
continue to attend project meetings with Miller and planned to give Henderson a
project in the future.

Resentment was starting to develop in the technical publications department due
to Henderson’s failure to meet expectations. Several of the writers complained to
Conroy because Henderson had been hired as a senior writer at a higher salary,
