A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO THE PRODUCTION OF BASIC BUSINESS DOCUMENTATION Are you making a start in writing business documentation? Do you feel the need to improve upon your style of communications and documentation? These books are designed to be particularly useful to the smaller business, especially in the engineering, construction, manufacturing and service sectors. More
This book is the fifth of a series covering the subject of writing in a business context. The whole series is aimed at those just moving into the sphere of writing business documents, whether junior staff who wish to advance themselves within their company or organisation, or perhaps those starting out on a new business venture. Whilst such people are often very able and accomplished at what they do in terms of their primary role, sometimes they need a little guidance in order to enhance their business writing skills. The first book in the series explains the basic principles of writing a variety of business documents. The use of language and procedures that will introduce a professional finish to your documents are also explained in some detail. Book 1 is therefore a precursor to the series and is recommended as an introduction to the subject. Book 2 concentrates on Communicating. Book 3 covers Reports and Meeting Agendas and Minutes and Book 4 deals with Quotation, Bid and Procurement documentation and Business Plan preparation. This book covers the accepted formats of Method Statements and Business Process documentation and how to put the basic principles and techniques explained in Book 1 into practice in terms of documentation concerned with these topics. An example of a simple Method Statement is included. However, because the other forms of documentation are potentially so varied, basic guidance only is provided. What I have presented in this series of books I have learned by actually producing a multitude of documents throughout my career. Being faced with writing documents in the work place need not be a daunting task. But, by learning the straightforward principles and techniques presented in Book 1 you will be well placed to commence preparing documentation concerning Guidance and Quality covered in this book.
