The larger the organization the more likely it is that there are written instructions about how things are done within that organization. This makes sure that nothing is left out and that everyone is clear about who needs to do what, when and how. When an organization systematizes how it does things, this is often known as a management system.
With that thought in mind, it is not surprising to notice that ISO Management Systems are becoming increasingly popular with risk based standards for Information Security, Service Management and Business Continuity.
How do these standards (along with their inclusive and related management systems) make an organization more competitive and how does the quality aspect of an ISO Management System benefit the overall business?
