    The publication I purchased was full of great information, instructions and guidelines on How To Write Policies and Procedures. Excellent product for the price. As a consultant I was able to put together a template from this information as well as build a PowerPoint presentation which offered a creative solution to my latest project of revising over 300 SOP’s using the manual’s suggestions of what to add, how to write and what to avoid, the Do’s and Don’ts, so to speak. I highly recommend these manuals as so many others on the market are nothing but empty templates with no instructions or guidelines.

    Excellent guide book. Clearly explains the rational for formatting a procedure. Clears up many misconceptions concerning the material contained in a procedure and directs the process to the end users to contribute and help with the preparation. For the first time I have clearly defined steps that I can use to help clients through the process.
