The more complex and verbose your policies, the more difficult it is to maintain them

Let's face it, Policies are boring! Most Managers start with enthusiasm, which fades over time

  1. Enthusiasm stage - Motivated to create the "best policies"
  2. Complacency stage - Can't find the time to go through it all again
  3. Redundancy stage - So out of date, you'll have to start all over again

Avoid this by having minimal and minimalist policies that are easy to review and update
