Risk Based Thinking
Requirements, Tools and Options
Duke Okes,  Knowledge Architect

Webinar Description

The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 replaces the requirement for preventive action with that of risk-based thinking (RBT).  While the intent is to alleviate confusion, it has actually created more due to the introduction of terminology not widely used elsewhere.  However, although it may mean greater variability in interpretation it also allows more flexibility to adapt to the context of each organization.

This 1-day workshop covers the specific risk-based thinking requirements, then compares and contrasts them with a formal risk management (RM) program.  It then exposes participants to a wider range of risk assessment/management techniques and processes, to show how RBT can be integrated into more formal risk management programs.

Attendees will learn:

    ·         The explicit and implicit RBT requirements of ISO 9001

    ·         What you’re likely already doing that meets the requirements

    ·         The risk management process (ISO 31000, COSO)

    ·         Making RBT a process versus an event

    ·         Evaluating and improving your RBT

    ·         Integrating RBT and the process approach

    ·         Risk assessment techniques (ISO 31010)

    ·         Options for integrating RBT with (E)RM

      Risk-Based Thinking


      “ISO 9001 is used by millions of people and organisations around the world and the upcoming 2015 revision will have a big impact on those who work with the standard.

      The impact of this revision will be similar to, if not greater than the 2000 edition, which was a major change for accreditation bodies, certification bodies, training organisations, implementing organisations, procurement organisations, consultants and customers.”

      An excerpt from IRCA Resources on “ISO 9001: IRCA Supporting the 2015 Revision”, October 2013
