OAS™ – On-a-Sheet, So Simple, So Saving

J&P BMCG has developed an own style used for specific documents we call On-a-Sheet. It’s used for short descriptions, introductions, guides, crib-sheets, and also processes.

About the Logo and Note on the Pronunciation

‘Oas’ is the Swedish word for oasis and consider an oasis: so simple (trees and water) and yet such a life saver! We can’t imagine a better logo for OAS™.

Listen to the sound file for correct pronunciation (it’s not ‘oh-ace’ but a short ‘o’, Swedish-pronunciation, followed by ‘aas’ – ‘o-aas’). (Sound example require MP4 decoder, e.g. Apple’s QuickTime.)

Documents in this series has been made since the earlier part of the 2000s and the current voice recording is from 2007.


It simple – keep it to one sheet! That’s it.

  • One sheet – two pages maximum.
  • Aim for one page but if need for two, focus main info on first page. Makes better posting.
    • For longer descriptive texts, second page can be used for e.g. check list, references
  • Always print double-sided, and consider this when making document.

Ok, for the ones thinking Why Do I Need a Process?

The method is easy to implement and is applicable in any area where a more organized process is advantageous. And in all honesty, in which area doesn’t a formal process help…? For the yet doubtful, we can come up with many good reasons but in the spirit of OAS™ – which is The Essentials:

  • Catch the important stuff, focus on the right things and not wasting time on less important details.
  • Tie information and knowledge to the company, avoid dangerous dependencies on unique individuals. What happens if the employee suddenly isn’t around any more…?
