When I first switched from a technical role to a management-level position, I found myself struggling with an unfamiliar vocabulary. More unexpectedly, I found that I wasn't able to write documents in a way which was suitable for the purposes of upper-level management.
Strategies, policies and other management planning tools need to communicate more than just short-term implementation details, but clearly convey long-term implications and a sense of how the documents fit into the broader picture of the organisation.
These following articles provide a checklist-based approach to writing some of the most common management-level documents. I hope they will prove useful to all neophyte managers out there:
- Writing a strategy document
- Planning strategic initiatives
- Writing a policy document
- Writing a charter
- Balanced scorecards
