Why ISO management standards?

ISO management standards help companies and organisations optimize their activities, processes and methods in different domains. To this end, management standards cover a range of themes: from quality and risk management to safety, the environment and sustainability, information security and facility management.

But rolling out standards also brings practical challenges. In this leap from theory to practice, the open and in-house training courses of the NBN Academy prove their worth.
