Organizations are moving away from their physical boundaries and incorporating society as a whole into their value chain.
It is no longer just a tool available to organizations; future management systems are now integral to their culture, supporting their values and goals. Despite being invisible, they form a vital part of any organization.
During the design and formulation of management systems, extensive engagement will take place with stakeholders including consumers, employees, shareholders, the environment, and society as a whole.
The leadership of the organization and employee engagement are of paramount importance, as they facilitate the efficient use of management systems that are appropriate for the chosen organizational structure.
For an organization to be sustainable, it must demonstrate that it is creating shared value for relevant stakeholders.
For management systems to be integrated and comprehensive, they need to look beyond their current boundaries, including technology, products, product designs, sourcing, manufacturing, marketing, distribution, and service.
Various business processes across the value chain can affect the end product and society, as stakeholders are aware. Business process management software solutions must therefore include the value chain in order to ensure sustainable processes throughout the entire chain.
