ISO 9001:2015 Strategic approach to risk-based thinking

ISO 9001 is the most widely adopted standard in the world, which forms the foundation for a system of processes required to achieve customer satisfaction.

ISO 9001:2015 introduces the new concept of context of the organization. This requires your organization to determine the issues and requirements that can impact on the planning of your Quality Management System (QMS).  The implementation of your QMS should be a strategic decision influenced by the context of your organization.

The standard also requires your organization to consider:

  • alignment of the QMS with the strategic direction of your organization
  • determining the processes needed to achieve your intended outcomes
  • addressing risks and opportunities arising from the context of your organization

This training course will provide you knowledge and understanding, as well as practical application, of these concepts so you can plan a QMS that meets the intended outcomes within the appropriate context of your organization.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for managers, executives and quality professionals who need a practical understanding of the context of the organization and risk-based thinking.

It is particularly relevant to anyone involved in developing, auditing or maintaining the quality management system.
