This article begins by arguing that single sourcing can be viewed as a new manufacturing process that puts pressures on the workforce and the very conception of “writer” and “document.” It then examines the literature on change management for clues into managing the impacts of single sourcing on writers. It also identifies the three broad approaches of this special issue: organizational change, integration/disintegration of individual writers’ skills, and cultural/pedagogical impacts of single sourcing.
