Executive Summary:

When building an enterprise management system today, managers must do more than just fulfill the requirements and rules of existing standards. Maximum benefit is achieved only when a quality management system delivers value helping to streamline organizational workflows and align business processes with strategies, policies, and goals. Alignment and integration of operational management systems and quality management systems is critical. This is true for all organization but perhaps even more so for small to mid-sized operations that have limited resources and must choose carefully where to invest.

This session will demonstrate the integration of business and quality management systems enabling quality initiatives to move from a static, documentation oriented posture to that of an active management system which responds quickly and effectively to changing organizational conditions. It will also show how technology-enabled compliance, audit and governance activities can be achieved though an a collection of dynamic graphical views or “models” integrated with automated governance workflows. While graphical in nature, these models also provide in-depth textual support for described processes, including the use of hyperlinks to external documents, applications, regulations, manuals, etc. Developed models can show an impressive aggregate snapshot of corporate organizations, strategies, technologies, applications, and methodologies, and also quickly show various interrelations of these which is critical for change management, costing and resourcing.
