I've been reading about control of distribution for documentation, and wonder how you've seen that play out internally to your companies? Especially since most documents are electronic now. How does one control distribution?

If you have electronic documents, then document control software or wikis make distribution nearly automatic. Most systems allow users to subscribe to notifications of changes, from individual documents to whole collections, such as those for processes or functions. And documents are easily reachable through menus and contextual links.

We also have new hires subscribe, during their initial training, to the processes to which they contribute. And every year personnel sends reminders to all to review the minimal set of docs that apply to their position (though this last bit is hardly necessary as most employees access the documents they need to do their job very frequently).
