Around this time last year, I asked readers whether you’d created a procedures manual for your role.
This weekend, I’m publishing a second annual version of this poll, including a couple of new questions. When I publish the results next week, I’ll include a comparison with last year’s results.
Have you created a procedures manual for your current role?
Please take a couple of minutes to complete the poll below, and I’ll publish results next Tuesday. “Select” whichever responses apply, and remember to CLICK on the “VOTE” ICON AFTER EACH QUESTION.
Most important document in our office is the ‘Admin Manual’ it is peace of mind for me if I am away unexpectedly, I know my team have the manual and my checklist to get the necessary work done.
There’s peace of mind in knowing people will have the info they’ll need, isn’t there?
Not in an Admin job, but use the directions in my guide/documentation as checklists as I go about my routine busy. This means that I update the guide/documentation as changes are made so by the 2nd or 3rd time I perform a task whose procedure has been updated the directions have been updated.
One thing I need to do is get these in electronic form. Currently have a binder with procedures on notebook paper that while very helpful to me are not in a state I would want to share with colleagues.
