How to Improve Your Management Procedures’ Usability
Are your people consistently following your procedures? Each year, organizations lose thousands of dollars through common mistakes and lapses in usability. But what does that mean for business owners and executives?
- Are your required actions described thoroughly and accurately, or are the details left open to interpretation?
- Is your content consistent and complete, or are your writers leaving gaps no one has noticed?
- Are revisions controlled, or are different people using different versions?
- Are your procedures compliant with regulations? Are you sure?
- Are all documents written to produce clear, measurable results?
If you're unsure about any of the answers to these questions, there is good news: you can make your procedures clear and complete without combing through all of them yourself line by line. You have invested in your procedures; now ensure you are communicating clear expectations, and your professionalism, with the best tools possible.
