Understanding the Concept of Management Systems

Does everyone in your organisation ‘get’ what a management system is? Do you hear people ask:

  • why have we got a management system?
  • what does it look like?
  • what is ‘ISO’?
  • why do we need a management system?
  • does this mean more work for me?

Not everyone understands the concept of a management system, and in my experience, some struggle on for months or even years.

Management systems should enable an organisation to be systematically managed – interconnected processes, people, policies and activities, all working together to achieve the same goals.

Understanding how this system will benefit you, and how you contribute to it, is key to it’s success.

If you, or other member of your teams simply ‘do not get it’, then consider a structured training session, focused specifically on helping people gain true understanding.
