Your questions

  • What are the different corporate management systems?

    A management system is the set of methods and processes implemented by a company to manage its business and achieve its objectives. Traditionally, a management system follows the PDCA cycle (Plan-Do-Check-Act - plan, implement, review, improve), and is based on a systematic, continuous improvement approach. There are various types of management system: quality management, environmental management, energy management, occupational health and safety, information security, sustainable development management, etc. Each of these management systems corresponds to an international ISO standard, which defines the main management principles of each management system.
  • What are the principles of a quality management system (QMS)?

    The Quality Management System (QMS) is governed by the ISO 9001 standard, which identifies the following 7 key principles:

         1 - Customer orientation: the QMS must be implemented in such a way as to satisfy and retain customers.

         2 - Management responsibility and leadership to transmit the vision, values and culture of quality to teams

         3 - Employee involvement: employees must be encouraged and made accountable for their compliance with the quality approach.

         4 - The process approach: different activities must be considered as interrelated and interdependent processes.

         5 - Continuous improvement, to constantly optimize quality and performance levels.

         6 - Evidence-based decision-making: every decision must be based on objective, reliable data, to be analyzed pragmatically.

         7 - Management of relations with interested parties: we need to ensure good understanding and communication with the various external parties (service providers, suppliers, shareholders, etc.).
