Left alone, the effectiveness of a management system can diminish over time. However, when continual improvement is effectively implemented the benefits are two fold:
- the management system is enhanced to unlock its true potential
- the enhancements are maintained long term.
As a result, continual improvement becomes a fundamental component of any management system. It ensures that an organisation has the inherent capability to meet its obligations to deliver both now and in the future, providing confidence and assurance for stakeholders.
