For any organisation the adoption of a Management System is a strategic decision, usually taken by top management.
The implementation and design of the Management System will fluctuate and depend upon your objectives, requirements, services or products, processes and size of your organisation.
What should I be thinking about in order to get started?
1. Review your business
Where is your business now and which direction is it headed in?
2. Identify what you want to achieve
Start with the end in mind and identify the benefit you want the standard to achieve.
Ask your employees for their input too!
3. Think about the competition
Will you be racing ahead or drawing level once you have the standard in place?
Can you afford to be left behind?
4. Think about your customers
Once you have the standard what benefit will your customers receive?
Increase in Quality and Customer Service!
5. Think about the supply chain
Many suppliers now insist that your business has particular Management Systems in place, with the most common one being ISO 9001 for Quality. What difference will this make to your business?
6. Tell everyone
Ensure potential and existing customers know that you have achieved the standard and that all of your marketing material including letterheads, emails, newsletters, etc, reflect this.
As with any useful business advantage, there is some effort required to maintain a Management System so that it returns real value to your business. Don't just leave it on the shelf gathering dust until the next audit. Use it as a tool to improve every aspect of the business. Indeed with the latest versions of the standards, namely ISO 9001:2015 there is more emphasis on top management having responsibility for the Management Systems and ensuring they are woven into every aspect of the business.
