Organisations are exploring innovative and engaging ways to improve the efficiency of their management systems in order to improve business performance and to maximize business results.
Publication of the revised ISO Management System Standards (e.g. ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015) offers an excellent opportunity to integrate lean principles and practices into Annex SL-based management systems. The new version of ISO Management System Standards contains many major changes and requires organisations to improve their management systems to meet the revised requirements.
Integrating lean principles and practices into management systems will support efficiency improvements by driving out non value-add activities (e.g. waste). Non value-add activities are what top management and key internal stakeholders share significant interest in.
Both Management System Standards and lean practices are intended to improve the processes within an organisation. However, inefficiency continues to exist in many organisations’ management systems. Embedding lean practices provide an opportunity to build on the value already delivered by management systems.
Management System Standards and lean practices should be properly integrated to drive the organisation toward the achievement of business results. Join us for a complimentary webinar to learn about:
- How integrating lean principles and practices into management systems can add value to your business; and
- Lean principles and practices that can be used to improve your organisation’s management systems performance.
