@hamje32 - Good strategic management planning involves policies and procedures. It doesn’t matter whether you have the greatest talent in the world or know what your mission is, you need a plan to get there, and you need it in writing.
And when those policies and procedures change, you need to update the documentation. I think this is very important. I was hired on at one Fortune 500 company where my sole function was to be be the policies and procedures coordinator.
I didn’t write most of the procedures, but I did help edit them and vet them to ensure that they were accurate. I met with various analysts who performed the functions in the procedures so that they could elaborate on their job functions and make sure existing documentation was up to date.
