Policy and procedure writing is a skill that requires clarity and precision, so an agency’s principles and best practices can be understood, followed, and enforced. In this one-day workshop, participants will learn what distinguishes a policy from a procedure, best planning and writing practices for both, and how visual design can impact readability. Exercises will introduce and practice common procedure formats such as flowcharts, and workflows. Participants will actively discuss and revise policy and procedure sample documents for developing greater clarity in decision points, conciseness of standard operating procedures (SOPs), and overall meaning in policy statements and guidelines.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish between policy writing and procedure writing
  • Develop policy and procedure planning guidelines
  • Integrate common procedure formats
  • Recognize how design influences readability and usability
  • Practice writing for increased clarity, precision, and meaning

Intended audience

This course is intended for anyone who writes policies or procedures.
