CT-thumbCompanies operate most efficiently when both people and technology work in a structured, organised way using an agreed business model. Management Systems help control, document and standardise processes across the business. They reduce human error, increase competitiveness and promote activities that add value.

Embedding robust Management Systems proves to prospects and customers that you are both committed to, and deliver, a consistent product and service performance. They know your output will have less variation. And they know you have strategies in place automatically supporting continual improvement.

Typical Management System Issues

  • Failure to realise an effective management system is rooted in behaviour rather than just procedures or software
  • Unclear or non-existent processes
  • Reams of ineffective procedures that nobody uses
  • Mis-alignment of roles and responsibilities with business processes
  • Little or no understanding of business process performance or linkage to root cause problem solving
  • Insufficient collaboration between departments in the management of organisational performance
  • Poorly executed quality audit programmes with insufficient senior management involvement
