Writing Policies, Procedures, and Tasks

This one/two-day workshop prepares participants to think through policies, procedures, and task outlines (desk manuals) more effectively, and to write them in a more readable style. Come and learn the most popular format for policy/procedure writing in Washington State — adopted by various state agencies, correctional facilities, counties, cities, and corporations.

This class will help you:

  • Reduce liability and confusion with clearly written directive

  • Stabilize staff action despite top-level changes

  • Save management time by documenting policies and procedures

  • Learn to write policies that staff can actually read and understand

Each participant will receive a copy of Larry Peabody's How to Write Policies, Procedures, and Task Outlines.
