February 13, 2017
Management System Focus
Performance requires Focus on the Company.
An Integrated Management System (IMS) combines an organization’s systems and processes into one framework, which enables the Management - leaders to focus on the organization as a whole. I call this process – “Identify”, “Insure”, “Improve”.
Risks & opportunities tied with its processes are identified, with strategic prioritized measureable planning for performance. Management then insures its operational support and controls to manage these areas. To improve, ongoing monitoring and measurement enables the leaders to analyze whether the MS achieves its intended outcome(s).
The following areas require on-going focus in an organization.
Quality & Information Security Customer Satisfaction, Quality management of processes, products & services Security of assets – financial, intellectual property, employee details.
Environment – Energy – Social Responsibility – Sustainability
Occupational Health & Safety Protection
Financial – Bottom Line
Leaders need to be engaged and establish unity of purpose and direction for the organization. They create and maintain the internal environment in which people can become fully involved in achieving the organization’s commitments and objectives. These objectives are prioritised and directed to the sustainability, innovation, creativity and recognition of employees for the success of the organization and the management of its quality (customer satisfaction), environment (prevention of pollution and sustainability), health and safety (prevention of injury and ill health) and financial needs (profitability), shaping its success and contributing to society.
