SENIOR MANAGEMENT BRIEFINGS ON ISO9001
Whether you run a small or large organisation, all senior management should be aware of their governance and compliance obligations. This requires an understanding of the responsibilities of the business, as well as strategies to deliver on promises to clients, customers, regulatory bodies and shareholders. This knowledge is crucial in deciding on and complying with all conformance requirements to the agreed standard of performance.
If your organisation has decided to be certified to the ISO 9001:2015 standard, you should be aware that a greater involvement by senior management is needed in the development and understanding of its quality management system. For some, this is quite a daunting task.
Some common questions asked by senior management:
- Do I have to know the whole standard?
- How much involvement is expected from senior management?
- What types of risk do we have to talk about?
- Do we have to do a formal risk assessment across the organisiation?
- How long will it take to get the ISO in place?
- Do all of my staff have to be involved?
- Do all of my staff need to be trained in ISO 9001?
Potential Unlocked has many years' experience in briefing senior management on their roles and responsibilities by clarifying the language used in the standard, providing examples to demonstrate the 'meaning' of ISO 9001 requirements and of course answering questions and responding to concerns.
