I recently completed the How to Write Effective Company Policy course. I realized that no matter how small an activity, it must have a basic purpose. When one follows one’s basic purpose, one is moving towards one’s goal. If someone works with basic purpose and makes sure he always goes with it, then he must see the result – the whole activity will flourish and go into affluence.
So, how to make the above happen? There must be something that can help. It’s policy! Policy is a rule or procedure or guidance which permits the BASIC PURPOSE to succeed. Some businesses fail because of neglect of policy. Maybe nobody in the office follows the policy. Or, the staff doesnít even know they have policy. Or worse, the company doesnít have any policy! Consequently, when a situation arises, no matter how small, the staff has no clue of how to handle it so as to forward the company’s basic purpose. Therefore, the company collapses.
I believe nobody wants to fail and everyone wants to win. Now I have a tool- Policy. I can apply it and forward my own or my company’s basic purpose. Now I know my ideal scene (the state of affairs envisioned by policy or better) is waiting for me and my life will be successful.
I am currently on the How to Make Planning Become an Actuality apprenticeship.
