When I was working for a very large company, we had an intranet site where any employee could document any procedure (for those of you who know IBM I'm referring to Connections). With 400,000+ employees around the world, this could be very hard to use.
I had been reprimanded for asking too many questions so I tried only using the documentation without consulting anyone.
I had to install MS Office on one computer and get the licensing for it, but I messed things up because the documentation I was following was for a different country. There was nothing indicating it was for a different country and to this day I'm not sure what I could have done differently.
What can I do to make sure that my questions are appropriate and not to frequent?
