Making your business more predictable
Proper documentation of operations and agreements is essential for good business management, helping prevent issues that, otherwise, might turn out into conflicts down the track. Everything you do not contemplate, agree on and implement beforehand will produce uncertainty and problems in case of dispute, with costly delays and judicial processes whereby someone will end up deciding for you.
