Standard administration is a collection of truths. An excellent working definition for truth is “that which works. And that which works most broadly to that which it is applied.”7
If what you are using is not working, it is relatively untrue. Policies and procedures are the basic truths or guiding principles. Company and personal stability depends upon having such written “laws” available and known to all concerned.
The continuance of an organization and its leaders can be said to be entirely dependent upon the skill, training and integrity of those who handle the administrative lines, details and contacts of the group.
“THE BEST GUARANTEE OF STABILITY IS ADMINISTRATIVE SKILL.”8
–Arte Maren, International Speaker, Writer and Business Consultant
