Sound Management Concept

What is Sound Management?

Sound Management is a model (or a system according to Talcon Parson) establishing a matrix relation between the managerial functions and the values called fundamental principles.

The added value of the model consists in the organizations’ viability and the managers’ integrity.

According to the OAAQ, Sound Management is a systematic and rigorous management approach integrating the managerial acts to the Sound Management fundamental principles in a matrix-type model. The model and the framework define the area within which an organization’s management evolves. Each administrative act and each managerial function (Plan, Organise, Direct, Control, and Coordinate) depend on the following six fundamental principles: Transparency, Continuity, Efficiency, Balance, Fairness, and Abnegation. The main characteristic of the Sound Management model consists in the homeostasis of values according to which a fundamental principle couldn’t be referred to against the other five. The paradox of management can be solved through the materiality of duties and responsibilities in terms of the organization’s mission and stakes.

There is a difference between the OAAQ’s Sound Management concept (capital S and M) and the use of the general expression sound management. Sound Management is therefore defined by fundamental principles and by an application framework.
