Why Should a Firm have Procedures and Policies?
casey, Other, Australia

Why is it important for companies to have policies and procedures? I'm currently in a course for leadership management and this is one of the many questions I'm being asked.

 
 
Why Policies and Procedures
Leodegardo M. Pruna, Professor, Philippines
A firm should have procedures and policies to guide its path in the direction towards achieving its goal. Without them the road to success would be haphazard and painstaking.
 

 
Reasons for Procedures and Policies
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
Another aim of policies and procedures might be to standardize and describe the appropriate things to do in (more or less) standard, straightforward situations. An issue with them is that they tend to be static and not very flexible. Also there is always the risk that the situation is not so standard as it seemed at first sight.
