EnTrance magazine – Operations Manuals
Description: As a versatile journalist and non-fiction writer I have also written various white paper and operations manuals for corporate clients. This has involved intensive consultation with each client to discuss their business and internal structuring needs, and heavy research across a wide range of internal documentation to synthesise the best and simplest operations manual possible for that business. The benefits of an external reader/ writer includes the ability to see the business objectively and from a fresh perspective, allowing for new insights and condensation of information and structure that may be invisible or blocked by in-house staff that have a pre-existing attachment to the material.
Included here are operations manuals written for Entrance Digital Magazine outlining a complex structure of online Creative Content Management for outsourced contributors from around the world.
