Next, we need to define the standards and conditions which are required to be met in an SOP.
For eg:- The order placement process consists of asking the customer about his/her preference, suggesting good items from the menu and having a pleasant behavior with the customer. Hence a person with knowledge of local languages and local food habits who has working knowledge of computer systems should be selected as an order executive.
Assign the responsibilities and have a clear hierarchy so as to avoid confusion during critical situations.
SOP Format Selection
