Key success factors in implementation of process-based management: A UK housing association experience
This paper explores the implementation of a process-based management system within a service organisation that has recently achieved certification of its quality management system to the ISO 9001:2000 requirements. Many academics and business people alike consider process-based management
as a fundamental requirement of certification to ISO 9001:2000 quality management systems. Hence, this paper discusses the definition of a process-based management system and also considers, through a literature review, theories relating to the topic. Consequently, a theoretical model is proposed
that outlines the factors affecting successful implementation of a process-based management system. The paper demonstrates that the theoretical model has been assessed within a UK housing association enterprise case study organisation. The case study organisation presented in this paper, shows
the potential barriers of implementation of a process-based management system.
