The Course

All business activities are governed by writing policy and procedures. Much effort is spent on looking at how to draft documents, and, while this is important, it sometimes overshadows the importance of the Policy or Procedure, and related documents such as Specifications and Standards.

The course will look at how these documents are created, and some of the main clauses that appear in them, all using real examples wherever possible.

The course will then consider methods to be used in drafting Policy and Procedures, and, in particular, how to avoid ambiguity and uncertainty. This is an area that generates large numbers of errors, and the aim of the course is to reduce the frequency of such errors and associated disputes.

The course will deal with Policy and Procedure documents written in the English language, but will use techniques which have wide application to many types of documents.

The Goals

  • Increase recognition of the use of Policy and Procedures
  • Develop drafting skills, which will be useful tools in all types of documents
  • Improve clarity of expression in documents
  • Increase working knowledge of implications and potential problems with Policy and Procedures
  • Better awareness of the commercial impact of drafting issues
  • Improve ability to reduce the risks

The Delegates

The course will be beneficial to those who find themselves responsible for leading on, or implementing Policy and Procedures mechanisms in both the public and the private sector.

In addition, it will raise the awareness of those who have been allocated 'potential' or specific tasks in maintaining Policy and Procedures but have insufficient time to devote to the subject.

The Process

The delegates will be involved in the latest trends in seminar presentations. The classroom presentations are made up of interactive practical exercises, supported by audio visual material and case studies. Delegates will be expected to participate actively in relating the principles of Policy and Procedure writing to the specific needs for their industry.
