Wouldn't it be nice for business owners and executives to be finished with their policies and procedures project already? They know they need to get it done, but maybe it's taking too long. Or perhaps their people are staring at a blank piece of paper, and they don't know where to begin. Or maybe they're not sure what to write. Or they're just too busy.
The Usual Scenario
Companies face these hang-ups everyday, in every industry, in every market. And it can be frustrating when trying to balance the everyday duties with the long-term vision and mission of the company. So which takes priority, and what are the feasible options to help with the process?
Save Research Time
Well-defined Policies & Procedures are based on applicable US regulations, industry standards and Best Practices, all researched by experienced personnel, technical writers, and process experts. This can save companies and executives valuable time researching the same material themselves.
Increase Procedure Writing Confidence
Instructional content, how to books, training, consulting and live support can help to ensure companies they have the information they need to develop usable policies & procedures right the first time.
Simplify the Integration of Processes
A wide range of manuals for the entire company all from a single source save time integrating the procedures needed.
Speed Policy Development
Standard usability formats, process design methodology and numerous examples for every department reduces employee confusion and improves usability speeding up policy development by less experienced personnel.
Ease Document Editing Tasks
Common MS-Word features provide faster editing, easier changes and simpler document updates to such things as the table of contents compared to RTF, PDF or hardcopy formats.
Get Quick Answers to Procedures Questions
Companies can be prepared with answers to policy and procedures questions. They can use the table-of-contents, keyword index feature, or the provided hardcopy manual to get fast searchable answers to their process questions.
Many might not be very excited about spending hundreds of man hours on your procedures project, and they don't have to. Instead, they can save time for themselves and for their business.
