Fear not, it’s never too late to take advantage of tools and techniques many of your competitors have, and are using successfully to grow their business and market share.
In order to understand why policies and procedures are so important we need to know what they are, and the differences between them.
Professional truck drivers operating their trucks (unladen) for personal reasons while on-the-road, and off-the-clock, is nothing new.
In fact, personal use (called “personal conveyance” or “PC” by government regulators) is a common and accepted industry practice.
Policies identify the key activities and provide a general strategy to decision-makers on how to handle issues as they arise.
This is accomplished by providing the reader with limits and a choice of alternatives that can be used to ‘guide’ their decision making process as they attempt to overcome problems.
I like to think of ‘policies’ as a globe where national boundaries, oceans, mountain ranges and other major features are easily identified.
The ultimate goal of every ‘Procedure’ is to provide the reader with a clear and easily understood plan of action required to carry out or implement a policy.
Good procedures actually allow managers to control events in advance and prevent the organization (and employees) from making costly mistakes.Does your company have a policy and procedure on who will handle this responsibility?Does your company have or need a policy designed to limit the number and type of “unassigned driving time” events?You can specify whether Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager pushes the policy down to the clients or that the clients pull the policy from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. If you select pull mode, then by default, clients connect to the management server every 5 minutes, but you can change this default heartbeat interval.See How the client computer and the management server communicate.
