PROCEDURES are a schedule of activities which needs to be performed, one after the other, in a fixed period, having a proper beginning and end. Procedures describe how each policy will be put into action in your organisation. Each procedure should outline: Who will do what, What steps they need to take, and Which forms or documents to use. Procedures might just be a few bullet points or instructions. Sometimes they work well as forms, checklists, instructions or flowcharts. Policies and their accompanying procedures will vary between workplaces because they reflect the values, approaches and commitments of a specific organisation and its culture. But they share the same role in guiding your organisation.
