Detailed Course Overview and Syllabus:

All of your business activities should have Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to make sure managers can control, and staff can perform work reliably and efficiently. This ensures that your policies are adhered to, business rules enforced, operational risk reduced and regulatory compliance is part of everyday business.

Standard Operating Procedures are guides containing accurate and detailed instructions to perform an activity. They have the force of a directive, covering the tasks of a process that require standardising and controlling without loss of effectiveness.

The practical examples will include writing effective action steps to writing an entire document and include real-life tips.
