1. Business Report Details
Choose 2 procedures in your workplace about which there are issues. It might be that you observe:
• A variation in practice in a procedure
• An element of non-compliance with a procedure
• A general feeling that the procedure is unpopular
• The procedure does not seem fit for purpose.
Once you have chosen your procedures, you should reflect on your chosen procedures, examining them using a mixture primary and secondary research, so as to critically analyse it and suggest improvements. We suggest you include the following for your chosen procedures. (NB. This is not a template to follow, simply a guide on what you might consider including.):
• Briefly describe the procedures
• Critically evaluate them regarding their effectiveness for all stakeholders who are involved in their implementation. This might include:
o Why does this procedure exist? (E.g. legal requirement, management control, quality)
o What policy (or policies) lies behind it?
o Does it reflect best practice?
o Is it fit for purpose or are there times when it causes tension or unnecessary work?
o Is the procedure adequate for all situations? Or do staff have to make judgements?
o Is there tension between the procedure and other practices?
o Is compliance with the procedure monitored? If so, how?
o What are the consequences for staff of not following the procedure?
o If the procedure is not followed, what are the reasons for this?
• Seek to clearly identify gaps between procedures and practice, suggesting reasons for these.
• Draw conclusions as to the impact on the business of your chosen procedures in their current form
• Make recommendations for their improvement, including a consideration of the costs involved in implementing these plus the benefits that would potentially be achieved.
• Explore if you believe, on balance, these improvements would offer value to your organisation.
