Want to know how to write a procedures manual? Each procedure manual from Bizmanualz is intended to be a simple, top-to-bottom guide, addressing the minimum set of statements for the administration and creation of a Procedure Management System.
What should you consider before you write your first policy and procedure manual?
Each policy and procedure manual, as well as each section of the manual (policies, procedures, etc.), must include a record of revisions — what was changed, when it was changed, and so on. It’s important to keep this revision record up-to-date: it is one way of ensuring that distributed copies of your manual are current. That is, if you’re keeping your manuals in hardcopy form — if you’re using OnPolicy Procedure management software, it automatically maintains a revision record on each document in the system.
Depending on their size and specific business application, some companies require expanded information. For this reason, Bizmanualz, Inc., offers business publications that include detailed, topic-specific manuals, as well as those that are more generic in nature.
Bizmanualz, Inc., is committed to providing professional publications for those business owners and managers dedicated to the development and success of their company. To this end, we continue to publish useful business guides to assist you in learning how to write a manual of procedures.
With the help of the prewritten policy and procedure documentation provided in every Bizmanualz publication, you should be able to produce effective management systems for most areas of your organization, including HR, Finance, IT, and others. However, you may be able to draw on other sources of information to develop a comprehensive program that truly meets the needs of your organization. These sources may include:
Keeping certain concepts in the forefront — like “change”, “appropriate language”, and others we mentioned above — will help you craft the kind of policies and procedures manuals that will meet or exceed everyone’s needs. Most guidelines presented have immediate use and importance. However, by using the MS-Word documents we provide, you can edit the samples and customize them to your company’s individual needs.
