Many companies and organizations may not have a “system.” They may just have their way of doing things. Chances are, processes may not even be written down – or worse, they’re all in the heads of the owner.
Needless to say, this is not a good way to run a business.
The larger the organization, the more the likelihood that written procedures, instructions, forms or records are in place to keep things running smoothly. These help ensure that business is orderly and structured so time, money and other resources are being used as efficiently as possible.
To be an effective organization – of any size – you really have to have systems and processes in place so everyone is clear about who is responsible for doing what, when, how, why and where.
Large organizations or those with complicated processes could not function without management systems. Companies in such industries as aerospace, automobiles, defense and manufacturing have been operating management systems for years.
ISO’s management system standards make good management practice available to organizations of all sizes, in all sectors, anywhere in the world.
So get your business out of the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality and get the training and consulting you need to achieve world-class standards.
