How to
          Establish an Integrated Management System

The following infographic shows how an Integrated Management System (IMS)
can be established. For more detailed information, see IMS Development Plan.


IMS Development Plan

We identified the elements that make up an Integrated Management
System (IMS)
by looking for all of the activities and outcomes that are
common to all management systems. Thatís how we created our
Integrated Management System Development Plan
.

However, it soon became obvious that such a Plan should have two
different components: a temporary construction phase (Part A) and a
permanent management phase (Part B). Once youíve built your system,
the construction phase is completed. You can then focus on managing it.
