Do you need to comply with any of these standards or regulations?

  6. I.T. Service Provision

If your organisation is experiencing difficulties in any of these areas it will be impacting on your bottom line and your medium, to long-term survival.

Even with formal management systems in place, you may be experiencing issues like:

  • Your process documentation isn’t being used properly throughout the business
  • The information is out of date and difficult to maintain
  • A major process review is needed ahead of each ISO certification audit
  • One person or team is responsible for managing all process documentation, which puts the business at risk.

Any or all of these issues indicate that the organisation is not extracting the full benefits from the management programmes but instead relying more on the knowledge of a few key staff members. If this is the case, then the benefits to be gained are the product of good luck rather than good management, and are therefore high risk.

Additionally, without formally documenting each incremental process change over time, improvements may or may not be capture and instead the information is subject to the collective memory of people or teams, which is also high risk.

The implementation of systems that address any or all of the above problems need not be difficult or expensive.
