Global power industry - Bryan wrote company policies and work procedures for ChemStaff, Inc., a chemical engineering firm, as a part of the development of their Total Quality Management System. Bryan took work processes he was completely unfamiliar with, taught himself the required material, and developed documents related to any number of the projects assigned to him. He wrote hundreds of documents while simultaneously working with high level consultants to develop the best written work to help the company create the highest quality products for their customers.
Bryan developed company policies, including an ethics policy, safety program, corrective action program, performance review forms, and many others. Additionally, he created workflows, procedures, manuals, checklists, and other related documents for ChemStaff's product lines.
