This is certainly not to say that your definition is wrong, but there is
another way of looking at technical communication.

Rather than a sender packaging a message that causes reaction in the
receiver, many contemporary theorists view communication (including
technical communication) as a kind of transaction between two people.
That is, the both the writer and the reader both take an active role in
the process, and the meaning that is communicated is created by the
reader as well as by the writer.
