Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s)
When a tribe or business is growing, it is often highly dependent on the leader for all major decisions. As a tribe or business reaches a certain size, this form of decision making can limit its capacity to grow further since the leader cannot possibly make all decisions properly. Additional management and documented SOP's are required to allow the tribe or business to continue growing, and also establish a succession plan and train the growing employee base.
