integrated management system
Integrated Management System
  • Quality Managementsystem since 1996
  • ISO 9001:2000 certification
  • Planning: 3 years mid-term (strategic) plan (‚Unternehmenskonzept‘)

1 year plans (‚Annual research program‘,‘Annual estimate‘, ‚Annual audit plan‘, ‚Education plan‘)

  • Managementsystem – reporting system

For all these indicators ‚estimated/planned‘ and ‚actual‘ figures are compared.

issues of rto management
Issues of RTO Management
  • Objectives are to a substantial amount depending on circumstances which cannot be influenced by JR
  • Trends towards demanding higher impacts are given – but impacts often cannot be measured (and influenced)
  • Multiple goals and principles, partly pointing in opposite directions
  • Contexts for the institutes and their represented fields of research and activities are highly heterogeneous – standardized sets of indicators are difficult to interpret
