How Great Lakes Advisory Consultants Help with Your SOP Development

At Great Lakes Advisory, we work with companies to build engaging operating and training manuals that make it easy to onboard new hires, train more employees and scale business. GLA can also use the documents to create handbooks and manuals (like business operating manual, policy and procedure manual, etc.). Our standard operating procedure consultants document policies, procedures, how-tos, and best practices while identifying operational areas for improvement.

Through our SOP development services, we assist in establishing clear, step-by-step instructions for employees to achieve operational goals efficiently and effectively. Although there’s finite time in a day, having the right systems in place allows for unlimited growth and productivity. We know managing a business is hard, and that’s why our SOP training and development solution makes the process as easy as possible.

Why Standard Operation Procedure Development Is Important to Your Business

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) maximize efficiency, safety, and quality control. Moreover, SOP organized in an operations manual can be used for training purposes. The careful systematization and documentation of business processes eliminate uncertainty about how best to complete tasks and ensure that operations are legally compliant.

Through SOP development, companies reduce waste and improve the training of new staff. Developing a clear outline of job roles and responsibilities increases accountability and consistency, while standardization makes work processes portable, enabling systematic business expansion.

Our SOP Development Methodology

Our standard operating procedure consultants follow a robust methodology to customize your standard operating procedures according to your business structure and needs:

Great Lake Advisory’s standard operating procedure consultants start by working with you or a designated team lead to define the inputs, outputs, decisions, and actions for particular roles within the process, then confirming the process is optimized. In this way, GLA takes SOPs and creates a company operations manual.

We will then walk through the steps involved in the operating procedures, creating straightforward instructions that lead to your desired results.

Next, we’ll clearly define standard operating procedures for you to implement in a transparent, user-friendly format.

Lastly, we’ll document your SOPs on a learning management system of your choice and build employee training around the newly outlined responsibilities and operating processes, ensuring your employees are adequately familiarized with all procedures.
