A company operations manual can be very helpful in selling a business!
No matter the size of your business, creating an operations manual is likely to benefit you. This living document contains important contact lists, checklists about functions of the business, how-to guides, and policies, making it a helpful tool for those unfamiliar with operations.
Each business’s operations manual will be a little different. Some will need a 1000-page manual that is loaded with detail, while others will find that a binder or online document with just a few checklists will meet their needs perfectly well.
No matter what type of business you have, your operation manual should be a resource for employees to reference information. A good one will aid in:
- Training employees
- Creating business standards
- Increasing business value
- Scaling the business
A well-written operations manual will not only help a business stay organized and efficient; it will help with sale of the business. If you need help putting one together, there’s always the option of contacting The Bridlebrook Group.
