As our publishing wing (IT Governance Publishing) continues working with industry experts to bring the most relevant and up-to-date documentation toolkits on the market, I was wondering what makes document templates so attractive, especially for those implementing management systems such as ISO27001, ISO 9001, ISO 22301 and ISO 20000.
Our most popular documentation toolkits so far have been:
They all have similar benefits in common: fit-for-purpose; easy-to-use; saves time; removes the need for reinventing the wheel; reduces the risk from error; reliable etc. But is this enough to make you happy?
Well, that’s possible. If a toolkit helps you complete your project successfully and you are praised by your manager, if it makes your job easier so you can leave the office on time, or simply adds to your satisfaction with your job, then yes – a toolkit can make you happy…
I think all of these benefits make our documentation toolkits be seen as real value for money by our customers, as opposed to writing the documents from scratch and potentially making mistakes…
Being tasked with the implementation of a management system, and in particular, with creating all the required documentation, is a significant responsibility. Not only can this be extremely stressful, but it’s easy to get stuck with some of the more complex documents. I know from experience that when time is of the essence and pressure is on, any help is welcomed. This is probably the point at which the savviest of implementers decide to invest in a documentation toolkit from a trusted provider. Since we’ve set up our toolkit demo page, we’ve seen hundreds of demo downloads and purchases, so we hope we’ve provided that extra help.
Management system document templates also serve as valuable guidance; if they are written by an expert in a consistent and structured way they can be unparalleled. They take the pressure off you and accelerate your project, enabling you to focus on other important things (and hopefully leave the office on time!).
We’ve received some great feedback from our customers sharing their experience from using our toolkits:
