What is MOS? (Management Operating System)
A Management Operating System (often abreviated "MOS") refers to the system of controls, communication and activity used to achieve organisational goals and objectives. Most often the MOS exists in a written form and is used to communicate to relevant stakeholders how an objective is being met.
Core elements of a Management Operating System
- Communication Plan: The communication plan addresses both the meetings that will be a part of the effort as well as the reporting out functions.
- Who will be invited to the meeting
- When the meeting will happen
- Roles of the people in the meeting
- Key activities: These will vary depending on what you are trying to accomplish.
- What the activity output is
- What the time line for the activity is
- Who is responsible for the activity
- Controls: How will you know if you are on track to be successful?
- What are the KPI’s for the activity?
- What are the current measures?
- What actions are needed to address progress or lack of progress?
Often the MOS serves as a governance plan and has an upward reporting component to communicate to management the kinds of activities that are underway to achieve a given outcome.
