Now many companies are faced with the challenge of how to move their quality management system from ISO 9001:2008 and transition to ISO 9001:2015.
This is not an easy task, and many overworked under appreciated quality managers are struggling to figure out where to begin. The new ISO 9001:2015 Standard was released on September 23, 2015 and now is the time to begin your planning. Companies like CVG Strategy are offering seminars and training, but when and where and how to you approach this subject?
A transition to ISO 9001:2015 will be a very interesting journey with questions like:
What do I do with my Quality Manual?
How do we implement Risk?
What the heck do I do with Context of the Organization?
Using a consultant can be a dirty word at some companies, and it can be hard for a seasoned quality professional to admit to themselves that they need outside help, or to tell their boss that they want an external expert to help them with the transition to ISO 9001:2015. The reality is that you must consider how much time are you willing to invest to attend seminars, create your own plan, make your own training materials, make all the changes to your QMS and then train your employees. What is the cost to the daily tactical business operation and how can you do your regular job and also this transition to ISO 9001:2015 project at the same time?
Consultancy’s like CVG Strategy can provide answers to these questions and help you with the transition to ISO 9001:2015 and we have state incumbent worker training grants available to help offset the cost.
