Somewhere soon we all describe our business processes as we advance them. We validate many of our core processes to plan for the unavoidable. Some processes are very straightforward that they don’t need to be documented.

Why make a plan to document processes and procedures manual?

  • To have starting point for improving the processes
  • To train individuals if need arises

Staying in front of Change

You should not follow the procedures so strictly that you forget to prepare for change. Evaluation your processes regularly to determine if you are getting the desired results, for instance, making your clients happy, staying ahead of the competition and taking benefit of every prospect.

One of the mistakes that many people had to learn from was writing their procedures without the knowledge of where they come from, where they are, and where they are headed. For them to be compliant, they were told to document the critical processes, and they did so without planning.

Procedure Journey

Writing procedures without planning is like going into an unfamiliar terrain without a plan. You come to realize that you were starting your procedure journey in the middle without a clear vision of where you come from, where you are headed and how you will get there. Failure will be the result of writing down processes and procedures without a defined plan.
