Scenario: You are well-versed in your field, feel confident in your work, are comfortable completing your daily tasks, and feel happy with the workings of your office. So while your office may lack a procedures manual, it may seem like creating one is an unnecessary task for such a well-oiled machine. But then you get sick and need to take an extended leave of absence, leaving others to do tasks you usually perform yourself. Or a longtime staff member leaves, requiring you to hire and train a replacement.
