A Management System is a chosen and certifiable company framework of processes and procedures used to ensure that a company’s can fulfill all tasks required to achieve correct and intended outcomes of its strategic, operational and regulatory objectives and requirements, for example BS EN ISO 9001, AS 9100, TS16949

An IT Best Practice Framework is a chosen framework of recognised best practices for a given professional discipline of IT, ranging from Governance through to Service Management and Delivery. IT best practice frameworks should not operate independently or compete with the company’s Management / Regulatory System, but chosen aspects of best practice relevant to achieving the company’s strategic, operational and regulatory objectives and requirements are integrated to complement and achieve compliance. Example frameworks include: COBIT, CMMi, ITIL, Prince 2, PMBOK, BABOK, TOGAF

In the absence of a certified Management System, IT Best Practice Frameworks are designed to align with your organisations governance / operating model, following recognised best practice and continuous improvement methods.
