An Interrelated Look at ISO 9001:2015 

Join us to explore the relationship of strategic direction and purpose of the management system, gain an understanding how to address requirements that lack an expectation for documented information and what maintained and retained documented information means and how to apply it effectively, learn the application of risk-based thought, understand competence versus organizational knowledge and transitioning to a business-centric management system.

Leadership Through the Eyes of ISO 9001:2015 

While some of us were losing sleep over the risk-based thinking requirements ISO 9001:2015, others realized that the role of leadership was equally critical in the implementation of the new standard. Learn how the new standard more clearly addresses the role of leadership in the organization’s management system, the importance of understanding an organization’s purpose and strategic direction within the context of the management system. Invite your leadership to join the discussion and learn about their new role.
