A training manual contains instructions on how to carry out a task or an action giving the desired result. It helps to ensure consistency in a working environment for assigned tasks and creating unity. It can be used as a resource in a course or as an ongoing reference book.
The subject matter could be on anything, such as: incorporating sales techniques for a business or a guide for customers on how to get the most effective use from a newly introduced product.
These types of manuals are important because it teaches the correct way to do or use something; therefore, it has to be well written and have clear tables and diagrams. These valuable documents initially teach a person about a particular subject matter and then the manual becomes a reference source when something unexpected turns up or a person forgets a particular element that occurs rarely.
Some training manuals have a life expectancy, especially when the subject matter alters to fit new developments or trends, but those expired manuals make room for the newer editions with the updated information.
Many manuals are poorly written to the point that you feel as though you are trying to decipher an obscure ancient dialect. How many times have you tried to follow assembly instructions for a newly purchased product, but ended up tossing the instructions out of frustration?
Assembly manuals need to be concise and clear for easy understanding. Diagrams and tables also need to follow these same rules.
There are many facets to well-written manuals, and we take pride in delivering professional documents that are user friendly and effective. We produce all types of manuals from information provided or collected (such as through interviews, notes and research).
