Mr. Procedure’s Three Rules for Procedure Development

First of all, a Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there, including my own. For many of us, we would have no faithful blog readers without them!

Just a quick note today, something to ponder as I prepare for the next round of posts: there are three objectives (rules) I have whenever I approach a procedure development effort:

1. Write as few procedure documents as possible.

2. Write the documents as briefly as possible.

3. Write each procedure ONCE!

We will discuss each of these points in future blog posts. Until then, happy writing!

    I really don’t believe your mother is your only reader. You have so much to say, and you say it extremely well. You can perdon my pride in claiming you. Also, please excuse me for being a reader who spasmodically reads, and later re-reads your excellent presentations. 🙂 🙂
