Future-proofing is the process of anticipating the future and developing methods of minimizing the effects of shocks and stresses of future events.
This concept relates to the current ISO 9001 requirement of identifying risks and opportunities and determining actions to address them. It is also similar to the legacy requirement of preventive action.
When an organization addresses these actions, the core of the QMS is strengthened. This workshop will use a combination of real-life illustrations and do's and don'ts for a quality management system.
Each clause reviewed will include a summary of how you can “strengthen your core.” It will also discuss how future proofing can be used to enhance the organization’s QMS.
This training will bring it back to the basics every quality professional needs to know to have an effective ISO 9001 quality management system and will review tools and methods that can be used to ensure the focus stays on the journey and not the race.
This workshop will focus on providing examples of how to strengthen the core of your quality management system.
Whether you are just getting started on the ISO journey or need to refresh your skills set, this workshop is for you.
