Rahul Karn: I am an 8 years experienced technical writer. In which direction should I move now? I am interested in BA, UX and Scrum master role.
Dinesh Singh: In the information technology world, people who have superior communication skills can command a premium, if they fix other job requirements. For you, one option is to move towards more technical know-how areas such as Scrum Master, Project Lead etc. Other option is to get more business skills and plan a transition into techno-business roles such as Business Analysis, Technical Sales, Pre-sales, Mid-Management and the like. In our experience, we have seen Technical Writers doing better in techno-business roles, provided they build enough business perspective.
