Amazon.com has over 725,000 Books available on management programs encompassing some 225 million pages.

The belief of the Kardinya practioners is that the success of the program would be enhanced by simple effective management. Noting good management must be inclusive and beneficial to all stakeholders.

To achieve this goal the management program adapted has a strong commitment to:
  • Family Management (K.C.C)
  • Consistent Communication
    • Residents
    • Volunteers
    • Staff
    • Families
    • NGO
  • 360 Degree Feedback

A culture of consumer and stakeholder driven processes focussed on progressive and simple outcomes is a key underlying expectation.

The assumption of equality in stakeholders interests is important in this process.

The success of the program is dependent on all stakeholders being engaged in the management discussions.

A series of simple management controls supports this process.
