Goals of the Handbook#

  1. Standardize procedures and practices: The handbook provides detailed guidelines and standardized processes for various tasks and operations. This standardization ensures consistency in how work is performed and decisions are made across the organization.

  2. Facilitate onboarding and training: New employees use the handbook as a primary resource to understand the company’s workflows, culture, and expectations. This speeds up the onboarding process, making it easier for new hires to integrate into the team and become productive.

  3. Knowledge sharing and accessibility: The handbook is a central repository of knowledge, capturing and sharing information critical to the functioning of the company. It helps in breaking down silos and ensuring that important knowledge isn’t just held by a few individuals.

  4. Guide decision making: By outlining the company’s principles, strategies, and methodologies, the handbook aids in aligning individual decisions with the organization’s overall direction and goals.

  5. Inspiration to founders: The handbook is a public document, available to everyone. It serves as inspiration and reference point to startup founders on how to build and organize their companies.
