An integrated management system is a management system that integrates all an organization’s systems and processes in to one complete framework, enabling an organization to work as a single unit with unified objectives.
With an integrated system, your organization becomes a unified whole; each function aligned behind a single goal to improve the performance of the entire organization.
Instead of “silos”, you have a fully co-ordinated system: one that’s greater than the sum of its parts, and can achieve more than ever before.
An integrated system provides a clear, holistic picture of all aspects of your organization, how they affect each other, and their associated risks. There is less duplication, and it becomes easier to adopt new systems in future.
An integrated management system allows a management team to create one structure that can help to effectively and efficiently deliver an organization’s objectives. From managing employees’ needs, to monitoring competitors’ activities, or encouraging best practice to minimizing risks and maximizing resources, an integrated approach can help an organization achieve its objectives.
