Q2.Why documentation is important to my business?

Documentation can help your business to become more productiveand consistent as it will save TIME and MONEY for you in the long run. The end result is your customers also become more happy and satisfied with your products and services!

Many small and micro businesses in Malaysia, especially the traditional businesses, tend to have all the important information stored inside the brain of the business owners or the key senior staffs of the company. All the communications (to the customers, partners, suppliers, subcontractors or staffs) are VERBAL and repetitive. The root cause to this business problem is: most people are just too lazy, too busy or too "lousy" to write it down. And they don't see the "long term benefits" to document it down.

Now, if you want to #GoOnline and #GoDigital with your business, the first step is to document it, or simply write it down, on paper or in any Word Processing software such as Microsoft Words that you are familiar with.

Q4. There are so many things I need to document. Where to start?

Start with the most important ones or most urgent ones. Remember, you are preparing these documents mainly for (1) your customers and (2) internal communication with your staffs, co-workers and partners (like the SOP).

It will take some time to do all the necessary documents for your business and this is an ongoing process. So, just start somewhere is better than you do not start at all.

Q5. Do I start to document by writing down on papers?

YES, you may. If you prefer to write things down on a piece of paper (i.e the old school style), please do so. But later on, you still need to scan it or convert it into digital format, i.e. digitize it. So you can put your document online later.

If possible, we recommend you to start your documentation using the FREE Google Document which is easy for online sharing (i.e. online collaboration). Or at least start documentation using your favourite Microsoft Words or Microsoft Powerpoint.
