6 Breakthrough Advantages of a Standard Operating Procedure Manual
As soon as you mobilize a Standard Operating Procedure Manual you will notice the things that have been frustrating you will start to disappear. The following ‘breakthroughs’ will occur.
Consistency will start to appear.
Your product or service must be delivered with consistency. Consistency drives repeat business. Repeat business means survival. You can’t rely on getting new customers all the time. You need to satisfy your existing customers, so they return for more and also refer new customers to your business.

How do you get your team to deliver to a high quality? Set benchmarks and systems for them to follow by using standard operating procedures.

How do you get your team to reduce mistakes? Set benchmarks and provide checklists for them to use with standard operating procedures.
3. Improved Efficiency

4. Improved Quality
Your product or service quality will improve because your team know how to deliver in accordance with the standards. Better quality means you can charge higher prices. Set benchmarks to meet quality requirements.
5. More Profit

Therefore, it makes sense to avoid mistakes and retain the right existing customers.
6. Relax a Bit
Feel a bit overwhelmed at times operating your business? Standard Operating Procedures allow you to delegate effectively in accordance with the ‘rules’.
You the business owner will be able to relax a bit more because your team will know they need to abide by the guidelines to perform.
