ELY, UNITED KINGDOM, June 4, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- IT Governance Publishing, the leading publisher of governance and compliance books and resources, is announcing the launch of its latest book: Implementing an Integrated Management System (IMS) – The strategic approach.

Written by Alan Field, the guide aims to help the C-suite, directors, compliance managers, auditors and trainers understand how to successfully implement an IMS and how it can benefit the organisation. The book provides a straightforward introduction to the complexities of an IMS, offers advice on implementation strategies, audits and certification, and discusses the challenges faced by organisations during implementation and how they can be addressed.

Sophie Sayer, managing executive of IT Governance Publishing, said: “We’re delighted to announce our new book release. Organisations often work towards achieving certification to multiple ISO standards, which can be time consuming and costly.

“The book provides information security professionals with guidance on implementing an IMS that helps their organisation incorporate processes and systems so that it is working under – and towards – one set of policies and objectives. By implementing an IMS, risks and opportunities are no longer managed in silos within the organisation, but with one unified or integrated approach from the leadership team.”

“The decision to create an IMS is a big one,” said Alan Field, “and usually books look more at the nuts and bolts of implementation. My book is more about the strategic decision to implement an IMS or not.

“Another element of the book is how different management systems can influence IMS planning. While everyone thinks about standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 27001 in terms of an IMS, approaches such as Lean or Six Sigma can also influence the structure of an IMS.”

Implementing an Integrated Management System (IMS) – The strategic approach is available in Adobe eBook, Adobe ePub, softcover and Amazon Kindle formats.
