Standard Operating Procedure

A standard operating procedure (SOP) is a set of step-by-step instructions compiled by an organization to help executives carry out complex routine operations. SOPs aim to achieve efficiency, quality output and uniformity of performance, while reducing miscommunication and failure to comply with industry regulations.

The SOP development process is a great way for managers and their teams to collaborate in the documenting of processes for everyone’s benefit. Developing and following a framework for SOP development creates a positive sense of teamwork and will lead to improving the efficiency of your workforce.

SOPs are not created overnight, they require attention to detail and an investigation into your key business processes. While the concept of creating SOPs may seem simple, not following a defined process and creating a badly written SOP can have a significant impact on your organization.
