Assignment background

As a newly appointed Quality Manager, you have been asked to advise top management on the possible application and relative benefits of three management system models, namely: ISO 9001, EFQM Model and Investors in People (IIP). 

You are also required to explain the potential advantages and opportunities the models can provide for your organisation in achieving integration with other management systems (such as environment or health and safety).

 

Task

The following tasks form the basis of the assignment:

  • Provide an introduction to your chosen organisation and to management system models in general;
  • Explain the similarities and differences between ISO 9001, EFQM Model and IIP;
  • Explain the possible application of each of the models to the organisation of your choice, and the benefits each could bring to the organisation; 
  • These management system models are primarily aimed at quality management.  Explain the use of the models in supporting the implementation of an integrated management system; and
  • Discuss the application of internal and external assessment techniques to monitor effectiveness of implementation.

 

Guidance notes

There is a wealth of information documented about each of these models so try to get a balanced view, especially when comparing the various types of model.

Focus on the organisation you work for or another of your acquaintance to provide practical examples to support your assignment.

Write the assignment as a guidance document for top management unfamiliar with the management system models.

I ordered the literature review for my research project in rush delivery. I was not expecting that they would complete my order 2 hours before my chosen time. The quality is also nice. Thank you for help.

The rates are a bit expensive for me of the essay writing service but the overall look is amazing. The references and formatting are done beautifully. So, I feel that the high rates are worth all these qualities. I want to thank you for great help.
