Small Business Q & A
Do you recommend a business operation manual software template to help save time writing the procedure? If yes, can you recommend a few?
I think a template for creating your operations manual is the best idea. That way your manual will follow a standard format which will be much easier to understand.
Do you need to buy one of these from someone else? Absolutely not. Just create a standard template for your manual in your favorite word processing program.
But before you begin, brainstorm a list of what you want to include in the manual. Don’t worry about it being incomplete — operations manuals are never “done.”
Then it’s time to take the biggest step. Execution. That’s where a lot of small business owners fall short — taking action. Don’t let that happen to you.
