  Article Summary  
Sometimes overlooked by executives leading small firms are the importance and many benefits of creating effective policies and procedures (P&Ps).

Revisiting and committing to formal policies and procedures, communicating them to all employees and stakeholders, and ensuring they are consistently followed support performance gains and improved customer satisfaction.
