What is a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)?

There are many definitions of an SOP but we like this one for its simplicity. 

Standard operating procedures (SOP) are a detailed explanation of how a policy is to be implemented.

An effective SOP communicates who will perform the task, what inputs are necessary, where the task will take place,when the task shall be performed, why the task is performed and how the person will execute the task.
