As we continue our discussion on Standards and how they assist with an organization’s communication, here are some hints to creating and maintaining Standards:
- First and foremost, define who/what area has responsibility to approve the standardization of any item that will be used for communication across the organization
- Create a format to compile the information that has been standardized
- Establish a process for the identification, approval, and notification for any new Standards
- Maintain a central location that is readily available to all Staff so the Standards can be used for any type of internal or external
Standardizing the use of terms and phrases goes a long way in enhancing understanding both internally and externally. Establishing a methodology to identify, create, approve, notify, and maintain Standards is an intricate step in the successful use of Standards within your organization.
