Across the World, over one million ISO 9001 certificates have now been awarded according to the latest figures from the International Standards Organisation. The survey, published in October 2010, reveals that there were 1,064,785 certificates, an increase of about 80,000 on the previous year, and that certificates are now held in 178 different countries.
The survey also reveals sharp increases, almost 70%, in the food safety standard, ISO 22000, and a 40% increase in registrations to the information security standard IEC/ISO 27001.
If you are interested in registering to any of these prestigious standards, or any others, please call Mark Woods on 07976 426 286 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
