I think this also depends on what kind of program you have. For example, I am the only one in my department who not only helps set record policies, but I also manage an in house record center for all company documents, electronic record storage and an archive. There are companies where these different record depositories are split up into different departments. My job description has then 3 different parts to it based on the requirements for each area of records. Those three areas then have a detailed description of responsibilities. I consider that my 30 foot view.
Then beyond that I have taken time to write manuals on different specific process that are used to meet my job responsibilities. Part of having these paths is due to being ISO certified, which demands we have written processes. But most of all I have it so that the consistency exists for past, present and future records organization. I have found this was not done by the person who set up the center originally, so it becomes a hassle when trying to locate older documents. This is something I don't want to happen for the next person.
