THE IMPORTANCE OF EFFECTIVE POLICIES & PROCEDURES

Effective policies and procedures are an integral part of any governance framework. Well-written policies demonstrate that an organisation is being operated in an efficient and professional manner, and fosters consistency in decision-making and operational procedures.

Best practice policies and procedures should:

  • be consistent with organisational values;
  • comply with relevant legislation;
  • foster uniformity and consistency in decision-making and operational procedures;
  • support stability and continuity;
  • maintain the direction of the organisation (even during periods of transition / change);
  • provide guidelines for business planning and development;
  • assist in assessing organisational performance;
  • support accountability; and
  • clarify functions and responsibilities.
