Management system

A management system is a set of interrelated or interacting elements that organizations use to formulate policies and objectives and to establish the processes that are needed to ensure that policies are followed and objectives are achieved.

These elements include structures, programs, procedures, practices, plans, rules, roles, responsibilities, relationships, contracts, agreements, documents, records, methods, tools, techniques, technologies, and resources.

There are many types of management systems. Some of these include quality management systems, environmental management systems, financial management systems, information security management systems, business continuity management systems, emergency management systems, disaster management systems, food safety management systems, risk management systems, and occupational health and safety management systems.

The scope or focus of a management system could be restricted to a specific function or section of an organization or it could include the entire organization. It could even include a function that cuts across several organizations.
