‘Management’ of an enterprise was recognized very early as an important dimension towards progressive business doing. Failing sound management means faltered initiatives and loss of resource (both material and human). This was undesirable and therefore thinkers and practitioners in commercial economy employed their counsels to formulate different theories and paradigms continued to evolve. However, the demand for better business management never saturated and therefore we find refined interventions always taking place. Integrated management system is a concept that has been developed with the objective of allowing the business firms and enterprises to streamline their tasks and operations and to negate their losses due to inefficient management. Companies are reaching out to management systems consultant agencies to adopt a resonant mechanism that takes care of their functional dynamics in a customized way.
Integrated management system – for better efficiency
ISO or ‘International Standards Organization’ has been instrumental in the last few decades, designing the codes and manuals for the business companies that want to achieve better management ‘in house’. It is not difficult explain as why the desire for better management is universal! The companies with sound management practices witness least inefficiency and hence better profits and growth. However, achieving this feat is not an easy proposition as it warrants a coordinated approach that balances well all the dimensions of relevance. Integrated management system combines the leading ISO management systems like 9001 (for quality assurance), 14001 (for environmental safety and compliance) and those pertaining to safety at workplace like 45001. IMS has been therefore developed as a comprehensive framework that responds to all the parameters. Implemented successfully, IMS offers visible efficiency enhancement that exhibits along the factors of lesser losses (of resources), better coordination & improved agility.
