CMI Unit 610 Principles and Practices of Policy Development

The principles laid down in organisational, corporate, functional and departmental policies have a direct bearing on the daily activities of an organisation’s workforce. Policy focuses on the activities which are of critical importance to an organisation. Policies can be used to set strategic direction. Policies also set expectations about the behaviours and values required by staff to work ethically and professionally within their roles and when representing the organisation.

About this course
