It is possibly even easier to demonstrate the value proposition of 
testers/quality assurance people and those poor souls are right there with good 
tech writers/trainers sharing the line to be the first to go out of the door 
(not to mention marketing and HR). Managers do not "reorganise" based on proved 
value-add, never had and (possibly) never will.

My 2 cents worth, from someone that, as a tech writer and trainer, was (one 
again) one of the first to go... with three more people one of them a tester.
