Process documentation is critical for having efficient business operations. Regardless of the size of the organization there is always a risk that can be addressed by having your processes better documented. Process documentation has many benefits, a few of which are listed below:
Tribal Knowledge is a major risk item in most traditional businesses. Having documented work instructions will minimize that risk in case of losing talent.
Process Improvement can happen best if there are documented, stable and repeatable processes in place.
Operational Consistency improves the operational efficiency. This will happen if standardized processes are defined, followed and audited.
Client Requirements often include process documentation to reduce risk. This is specially the case for businesses in regulated industries.
Risk Mitigation is typically required for showing compliance with industry requirements such as AS9100, ISO 9001, IATF 16949, etc.
