Management systems

Management systems describe the tasks of management as well as its methods and leadership techniques. They exist in every functioning company, but not all of them meet the basic requirements (see the further literature or the programs of management seminars).
Operational areas of application are: organization, personnel, planning/control, information/communication, customers/markets, environment. The best-known management system today deals with quality management according to ISO 9001. Other management systems can be found in environmental management, risk management, financial management, product management, customer management, personnel management, supplier management, information management, knowledge management, innovation management.
An integrated management system (IMS, e.g. the EFQM model; see detailed description in the literature) combines the individual management systems into a comprehensive management system for the entire company. It combines methods and instruments for complying with requirements from the various company areas in a uniform structure. This enables leaner, more efficient management of the entire company.
