The Worlds Oldest Bank Invests in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
Virginia Shuey Vergani writes that any organization that can survive
for more than 500 years and thrive in todays marketplace must be
well-managed and ready to take advantage of the latest business practices.
She provides a detailed look the decision by the MPS banking group to
invest in ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001 and EMAS and the results of the management
system implementation and registration of some of its processes and operations.
Vergani examines how this organization can now lay claim to the use of
management systems in the bank services sector and benefit from it.
