View Full Version : Affordable Operations Manual

03-26-2006, 07:39 AM

As a small business owner, I've enjoyed reading the posts on this forum. I noticed that many people are either considering starting a business, or looking for ways to expand a business.

For both companies I strongly suggest developing an operations manual. This will act as a reference guide for you and any employees and by using a manual from the start you can add to it as you go, so that when you franchise you will have a complete manual. Manuals are not only reference tools, but when you franchise they become sales and legal tools as well.

Larger consulting firms charge $15K plus to create customized manuals, but if you want to save money you can develop your own, or use an expertly written template that has notes about where to input your specific information.

If you need a complete manual (550+ pages) please visit http://www.operationsmanualtemplate.com.

Good luck!

That website doesn't seem to exist anymore. So here is a link to an article of the WSJ that describes how to draft an operating manual: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052748704342404574576320200075450

These operations manual are notoriously difficult to generate. It is a technical job and it is not for the creative minds. - Marla Ahlgrimm (http://www.marlaahlgrimmhealth.com/)
