Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Documenting the "how" in systems, part of Thought Leadership (2012).
Once we've established the foundation of a system on the left side, we're ready…to move onto the main part of the system, which is the how-to section.…This is where we list all of the system's steps.…We don't need to provide every little detail regarding the how. We just want to…create an outline, a sketch of the general steps that someone should follow to complete this system.…Keep in mind that this system is designed to be a training tool for use in…teaching the system to another person.…
The fine details can be covered in the teaching process.…Let's begin continuing with the washing clothes system example we provided.…Step one of the how section is unique as it's not what you do but instead the…event that triggers the need for a system.…In this system, step one is "Monday morning, laundry day, arrives."…Step two is where we begin the step-by-step how-to of the system.…If you need help in coming up with this list, ask yourself this question:…What is the next step?…Write down that step, and then again, what's the next step?…
