Guilty of having documentation of your processes scattered everywhere? Some are in the cloud, some in personal files, and some have entirely different names and structures. Don’t worry; you’re not alone. Documenting processes is not the most fun thing to do, after all.

Nonetheless, standardizing your process documentation can easily save you hours of searching for files and training new people, and more importantly, it protects your processes. Without a standard way of documenting your processes, when your best people leave, they take all that knowledge about your processes with them.

Standardizing your process documentation doesn’t have to be complicated. I’ve been working on this for a few months now.

I’m thrilled to finally share with you this simple guide on how to create a documented process — complete with instructions, an example, and a fillable, ready-to-use process template.

The mistake most companies make is letting everyone document processes in their own way. Choose one way: one template, one place to store them, and one way of naming them.

Standardization of process documentation is part of what we do when I’m helping companies with process improvement. But you don’t have to pay me to do it for you because these are the things anyone can do that can drive enormous value in terms of protecting your asset of knowledge.

In love and respect,
