To start a business and have it up and running successfully, you will need to think of some realistic business management plans. Mr. David Levine and Michael Toffel of the Harvard Business School published a paper on January 18, 2010 that summarizes an empirical study performed that researched the benefits realized by 916 companies that adapted the ISO 9001 standard compared to 17,849 non-adapters (2).
The output point is where requirements are met and is where the organization can determine if the process is effective. In conclusion, I hope I have provided some insight on how ISO 9001 can be used as a real business management tool and how it’s so much more than just a quality management system standard.
ISO 9001 has some great tools within it to assist your organization improve its operation and to even reduce risk. It is easier to achieve goals or objectives that are distinctive and focused. Define the company’s passion and the methods to excel in it. Such business management strategies will strengthen the company’s competitiveness in the industry.
Most often, the process progresses by passing the responsibility of the project from one group to the next along the way of each stage. I have been on the receiving end of some organizations’ non value added processes. The person that is leading the Ideation Stage must consider this stage a project within itself, and themselves as the Project Manager.
Management is an instrument or system that contributes for the efficient use of human and other resources to achieve predetermined objectives. From the moment you begin an entry-level position, show those ahead of you that you can direct projects and work with your team members in order to achieve results.
