Systems Transformation: Kriterien und Vorgehensmodell für den Wandel zu einem ganzheitlichen Managementsystem

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis


The lack of a systematic decision base respectively a stringent procedure for the transformation of management systems in the specific context of organisations makes clear, that the management of transformation itself has to be understood as an additional essential element during the establishment of holistic management systems. For this reason this thesis provides a catalogue of requirements for transformation models witch bases on various research disciplines like general management, management systems, change management and coordination. Following this catalogue of requirements current implementation concepts of management systems are evaluated and areas for improvement are identified. Upon this and the value chain idea of Porter relevant elements of a model for the transformation in the direction of holistic management systems are identified and described in detail. The valuation of the model is provided by pilot-implementation at Hüttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann GmbH, a major company of the German steel industry.
