What is a management system?

A management system is a framework of policies and procedures which ensures that an organisation can fulfill all tasks required to achieve its objectives. When it comes to managing people and avoiding ethical risk, a management system can help you to:

• Do: make sure that your plans are turned into reality

• Measure: keep track of how you are doing
