I don't know about you, but as much as I love the sound of my voice, and what architect does not, I'm not thrilled repeating the same directions to a constantly rotating stream of staff.  It's also not so much fun to find a job you took over was done in a way totally foreign the the firm, and you have to sift through the files to figure out what was going on.


Hence, documentation.


In this case, an Office Users Manual containing all the various directions it was necessary over the years to write down for staff.


As this type of manual is in a constant state of flux, it is inadvisable to devote too much overhead time to it, and just as important to ensure it is easily and constantly updated by as many staffers as practical.


Shown is the Index sheet from another manual.  Before I left the office this was a collection of seperate files.  Since then I've compiled and expanded on them to create a more useful reference work.
