7 Steps to Better Written Policies and Procedures

7 Steps to Better Written Policies and Procedures provides information on how to use a template for gathering content for your policy or procedure document.  Ask the author (stevebpage at for a free template, or you can make your own based on the examples I provide in this book.  This book is the answer you have been seeking…an easy way to fill in the blanks in a template…and the end result is a completed policy or procedure draft document.

While this book focuses on writing clear, consistent, and accurate policies and procedures, this author has also included a five-step writing process that will not only help you research, organize, and write your policy and procedure documents but the five-step writing process can be used for virtually any type of written material such as memos, presentations, or other correspondence.

How you use this writing format is based on your ability to do research on the policy or procedure topic, develop some kind of flowchart or workflow, and work with the key users and stakeholders to gather all of the necessary information that belongs in your policy and procedure draft.
