What are IT Policies and Procedures?
In any department of any organization, policies and procedures ensure that employees and employers both know the company’s answer to practical questions posed in daily operation, and what actions to take from those answers. This has become ever more integral for the IT department, and everyone else in the company that interfaces with an organization’s ever growing IT Network. Be it expected use of a simple cubicle computer through a work day, or the expected reaction to catastrophic technology failure, these policies and procedures ensure no one is in the dark or confused even as networks become ever-increasingly complex and titanic in size.
In addition to keeping everyone informed, and putting necessary controls on IT use and adding security measures in the process, effective IT Policy and Procedures can unlock and guide creative utilization of technology for problem solving and enhancing productivity when the opportunity arises. This kind of efficient use of both rules and instructions can be instrumental in providing a both pleasant and effective work environment and contributing to consistent company growth on every level as technology becomes more and more prevalent and necessary.
That sounds great!
However, just as complicated as your network will become, so are the interactions with your network on both your hardware and software solutions. As well as how to effectively problem solve all aspects of the network for the IT Team. Thus, an organization needs a more thorough Policy and Procedure Manual to deal with increasing quantity of demands.
Creating such a document in-house is time consuming and resource draining in itself, especially as there’s every chance that unfamiliarity with the network or processes within, as well as with the complex mechanics of human-technology interactions, can have catastrophic repercussions when the clock is ticking and the bottom line is, well, on the line.
