This highly engaging and practical training course will fully prepare delegates to skilfully develop and write effective Policies and Procedures. The focus will be on making these effective within their organisation by considering issues such as compliance, language, organizational values and culture. This is such an important subject because all work activities are governed by Policies and Procedures. Hence, in order to perform their duties and be highly effective, all practicing professionals must develop these essential skills.

This training course fully prepares delegates to translate Policy into Action by developing the relevant Procedures. Delegates will explore techniques to ensure that Policies and Procedures are welcomed, understood, accepted and fully implemented by all those who need to use them. The training course provides a definitive guide to creating purposeful Policies and Procedures Documents, demonstrates online resources and even provides editable Templates for future use of all delegates. Distribution of the documents on modern devices such as smartphones and tablets will be explored, and publishing resources identified.
