As we continue our discussions around consistency and how it helps an organization to build operational effectiveness, let us be reminded of the power of standardizing information. Standards reduce confusion, create clarity for Staff and Clients, and provide a consistency way to do business.
Standards are needed for terms, phrases, formats, and communication. Without them, folks waste a lot of time trying to figure out expectations, what is being communicated, and so much more. By using standardized, consistent information, organizations can concentrate on what is most important instead of getting caught up in what is being communicated.
If you need help creating the methodology and approach to building standards, contact Charlene Aldridge at 972.447.9787 or CharleneAldridge@aldridgekerr.com to discuss how we can assist you.
