How is the job performed? How do we know it was performed properly? How do we train our workers to perform our essential tasks? What is the purpose to even develop Operating Procedures?
All of these questions are answered in Writing Operating Procedures, part of the Performance Management series of books from Mr. Procedure Productions.
Through 12 carefully-arranged sections, the book establishes a valid purpose for the existence of Operating Procedures, and how an Operating Procedure should be developed consistent with that purpose. Discussions include, “What Should My Procedures Contain?” and “How Should My Procedures Be Structured?” The book provides useful strategies to determine what Operating Procedures are necessary, and how to identify and collect the information and supporting visuals necessary to complete the procedure.
This book is designed to function as the workbook for a seminar-style course, but was written to stand alone as a source of information and inspiration for the development of your organization’s Operating Procedure program.
For a limited time, the author will distribute (free of charge) a copy of the book. It is available to anyone who contact Tim James directly at email@example.com.
Charles (Tim) James, who acquired the nickname “Mr. Procedure” in a previous career stop, has spent nearly 30 years in various aspects of process development. Most of this time was spent in the aerospace materials industry, which is very document-heavy and heavily audited.
His career roles have largely focused on process documentation, including procedure development to enable compliance with OSHA’s Process Safety Management standard. His dual role—writing procedures and performing training based on the procedures he wrote—provided a ground-level understanding of procedure function and how to structure procedures for learning success.
Tim had the good fortune to expand his role to training for a worldwide chemical organization, teaching and leading continuous improvement, Quality Management System development and audit performance, safety topics, particularly root cause analysis, and teaching supervisors how to supervise and trainers how to train. It was only a matter of time before he applied his knack for course development with his passion for Operating Procedure excellence.
More recently, Tim has worked in capital equipment manufacturing, writing technical manuals for multi-million dollar equipment sold to customers worldwide.
Tim is also the founder of Mr. Procedure Productions. Mr. Procedure Production boasts “Full Spectrum Performance Excellence Solutions.” Offerings include a wide variety of books on performance management and instructional communication topics, all of which can be tailored to in-company or public seminar presentation.
