ISO9001 and ISO14001………and all that.

There is much debate on professional networking sites about the relevance and value of the ISO9001 and ISO14001 Standards. But I assert that they are getting it wrong!

We at BMN Management take the view that the design and implementation of management systems is driven by the need to meet the needs of our clients………………and therefore their customers and other stakeholders.

The Standards, ISO9001 and ISO14001, and others, are only a benchmark to facilitate external assessment and certification……..if required. This is where conformance comes in.

Conformance, however, by its nature and application, can constrain innovation and creativity. But this does not have to be the case.

Whether or not our clients wish to use a Standard to guide the implementation of a management system or to gain industry recognition……………..the vital thing is to encourage the positive aspects of the client organisation……………to facilitate innovation and creativity…………and thereby, to support change and growth.

Why not speak to me at BMN Management to discuss how we can support you in addressing those issues that keep you awake at night!
