Writing Effective Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions

Duration: 60 Minutes
Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions - the documentation required by regulation - is essential to the effective and compliant running of any regulated business. Unfortunately, many individuals in those businesses miss the valuable opportunities that properly developed Standard Operating Procedures/Work Instructions can provide. Regulated documentation can serve a variety of purposes other than meeting a regulatory requirement - as training materials, to standardize operations, to manage individual and group performance, to identify the sources of deviations, etc. The key is to knowing how to write those documents to properly meet those needs.
