I have promised myself for years–usually every time the renewal for the mrprocedure.com domain comes around–that I will return to my instructional communication blog and ponder all things related to people’s connection to process. Well, as we begin a new decade, I am without excuse.
You see, after 8 1/2 years, the company for which I have written system manuals and internal procedures announced an abrupt closing on Jan. 27. As a result, I and about 35 others found themselves clutching a manila envelope with termination documents, a severance check and a kind admonition to “get lost.”
So what this means is that yours truly is back in the job market and I figure any avenue to project myself I will take advantage of. My specialty areas, as reflected in the blog posts I have created over 9 or so years (though virtually none in the last six years), include training development (online, classroom and on-the-job), course development and facilitation (lean principles, behavioral safety, quality systems and audits), safety program administration, full-spectrum training program development, deployment and administration, and, of course, writing of any variety to support business operations (including but not limited to: policies, operating procedures, work instructions, record forms, newsletters and online content).
I am located in southern California, specifically what we refer to as the Inland Empire (about 40 miles east of Los Angeles) though I would consider relocation for the right combination of job factors.
I may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (909) 767-8574. I can provide my resume (customized for position objective), samples of work and references.
Meanwhile, I will also return to developing my long-awaited follow-up to my Writing Operating Procedures book, Beyond the Writing of Operating Procedures. And I will go back to creating posts that display my philosophies of leadership, process optimization and instructional communication.
Thank you so much for the support you provided over the years, Mr. Procedure.
