This book, Establishing a System of Policies and Procedures, is a must for every person embarking on writing policies and procedures for the first time and/or for experienced writers.
This was the first book I ever wrote. I consider it a simple primer for learning the basics of writing policies and procedures. The book is short and can be read in an evening. The policy and life cycle is laid out in short, simple paragraphs; the book contains everything you need to get a basic understanding of policies and procedures.
The policy and procedure life cycle is:
-- Writing a Draft
-- Editing a Draft
-- Reviewing a Draft
-- Approving a Draft
-- Publishing the Draft
-- Communicating the Published Document
-- Training the Published Document
-- Maintaining the Published Document
-- Improving the Published Document
-- Revising the Published Document
And now the life cycle starts over. Policies and procedure evolve. This simple, little book is the best first book you can buy. Next is the 7 Steps to Better Written Policies and Procedures.

My Advice to you:
Purchase this book along with the other four as this will help you build a comprehensive policy and procedure book library.
I highly recommending buying this primer first if this is the only book you can buy. Best is to buy this book and Writing Exceptional Policies and Procedures as your only two books to purchase.
The author of this book is Stephen Page. That's me!I wrote my first policy and procedure book in 1984, just 5 years after I started in the policy and procedure business.
I have since written four more books; each one building on the earlier one. I currently sell five books on the Internet (companymanuals.com). I sell to more than 134 countries and have consulted for the US State Agencies, State Departments, and several Foreign Governments. I have been writing policies and procedures for large and small companies for the past 38 years. My books include:
-- Establishing a System of Policies and Procedures - Primer
-- 7 Steps to Better Written Policies and Procedures - Instructions for using a template
-- Writing Exceptional Policies and Procedures - Comprehensive content from my 4 other books
-- Best Practices in Policies and Procedures - Research and writing best practices
-- Achieving 100% Compliance of Policies and Procedures - Continuous process improvement
I take pride in my stellar customer service. I provide free advice anytime and you can reach me on the telephone. I offer my writing format template (for policy and procedure documents) to anyone who asks.
