Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9789811054877
Release Date: 2017-08-19
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book provides an understanding of Business Continuity Management (BCM) implementation for local/international construction operations, with a primary focus on Indonesian construction firms as an illustrative example. It reviews the whole spectrum of work relating to organizational culture (OC) and the institutional framework (IF) as one of the key ways for companies to evaluate and implement BCM in construction operations. Once readers have acquired a sound understanding of BCM, OC and IF linkages in construction firms, the lessons learned can be extended to other companies. This is facilitated through a systematic assessment framework presented in the book using a Knowledge Based Decision Support System (BCM-KBDSS), which allows these companies to evaluate their current status quo with respect to BCM, OC and IF, and then make informed decisions on how and to what extent BCM should be implemented in their operations. As such, the book offers a unique blend of theory and practice, ensuring readers gain a far better understanding of BCM implementation in the construction industry.

Genre: Business & Economics

“There are many misconceptions about ISO standards that very often do not allow the standard to become a serious candidate for consideration, let alone for the actual implementation.” In this book, Dejan Kosutic, author and experienced ISO consultant, is giving away his practical know-how on preparing for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 22301, ISO 20000, ISO 22000, OHSAS 18001, ISO 13485, AS9100, and IATF 16949 implementation. No matter if you are new or experienced in the field, this book gives you everything you will ever need to learn about preparations for ISO implementation projects, and how to avoid some costly mistakes in the process. The first step that is crucial to any ISO implementation project is to convince your top management to implement the ISO standard, and in order to do so, you have to speak the language they want to hear. As Kosutic says: “What management wants to hear are profit, market share, client satisfaction, cost cutting, business strategy, and business risks. And you can’t blame them – after all, this is what their job is all about.” Starting from that step, Preparations for the ISO Implementation Project: A Plain English Guide will cover other important steps your organization must take in order to be completely prepared for the implementation of any ISO standard. Among other important things, you will learn how to choose a consultant, how to set up the project management structure, and what tools and templates can help you in the implementation project. Written in easy-to-understand language, this book is written for people who are going for an ISO implementation for the first time and need clear guidance on what to do before the project starts. Whether you’re an experienced practitioner or new to the field, it’s the only book you’ll ever need on the subject.
