Your goal must be to develop the best working system of the model and when it’s complete your system must work like clockwork. 

Welcome to another edition of hospitality property school. 

I’m your host Gerry MacPherson and today we are going to talk about what you should include in your operation manual. 

The material could vary a little bit from property to property but the frame or structure I’m going to share with you is universal.

or 

“Can I open 1000 locations that are the Manual model and not have any problems?” 

Your goal must be to develop the best working system of the model and when it’s complete your system must work like clockwork. 

So, what should go in your Operations Manual model?
