2. Copyright © Concept Editing 2015 While we may have been taught at school or university to use compound sentences, big words, and complex clauses, a procedure writer needs to ignore these lessons and recognise that a busy reader just wants clear instructions that are easy to read and understand. .

8. ABOUT me www.joannesorensen.com People tell me that they want their procedures to support people’s performance; so I help them. I help people when their procedures don’t work. I write procedures for people who want to reduce the challenges and error traps associated with procedure use. I edit procedures against standards, programs, and best practices. I take a risk and research-based approach and I base my recommendations on industry standards and best practices. I coach and mentor people who have other jobs (people who are not professional writers) and help them improve their procedure development and writing skills. I develop formats for procedures that provide structure for writers and readers. I also develop style guides to support standardisation and consistency of procedure content. I review and analyse procedural practices programs. I give advice to leadership teams about how procedural practices can be improved and integrated with governance, improvement, and compliance programs.
