Ted Dangelmayer's book [ESD Program Management: A Realistic Approach to Continuous Measurable Improvement in Static Control; Dangelmayer, T; Kluwer Academic Pub 1999 e2; 0412136716] is excellent.

Mr Dangelmayer developed his approach at AT&T/Lucent to help the company and it's suppliers do better. It gives tools for developing of an understanding of the requirements and an approach to meeting the requirements. The approach is particularly suited to companies with limited resources. Here is the essence of the first chapter of the book:

Also consider ESD TR 20.20 - ESD Handbook. It is the supporting, why's & wherefores document for ANSI/ESD S20.20 - Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment (Excluding Electrically Initiated Explosive Devices)
