The new ISO 26000 standard, Guidance on Social Responsibility, was published late last year and gives guidance on the underlying principles of the, often confusing, area of social responsibility.
The aim of the standard is to help organisations integrate socially responsible practices into existing strategies, systems and processes. The framework includes seven key areas.
• Human rights
• Labour practices
• The environment
• Fair operating practices
• Consumer issues
• Community involvement and development
• Organisational governance
By using the framework to review the way in which an organisation behaves, the ISO 26000 Standard assesses to what extent an organisation transparently and ethically:
• takes into account the needs and expectations of customers and stakeholders;
• contributes to sustainable development;
• is compliant with applicable laws and consistent with international norms; and
• integrates and implements these behaviours throughout the organisation.

Since the invention of management over a century ago, management has become detached from both the day to day operation of the organisation and from delivering value to the customers who pay for the products and services provided. Conventional wisdom is that managers set targets and then create systems to monitor, measure and control the execution of these targets. These systems include budgets, performance management, incentives and appraisals which are used to exercise control and ensure that targets are met. Simple, obvious and wrong!
We need a change in management thinking.
The aim of this blog is to therefore challenge the way in which we currently think about management, hopefully slaying some of the myths that surround it.
