September 15, 2016 Dinner Meeting


Implementation Focused on Results Rather than Pleasing Auditors

Presented by Denise Robitaille


With the recent release of ISO 9001:2015, organizations are asking: "What will the auditors being looking for?" They are focusing the energies on pleasing the CB auditors. The auditability question should be secondary. This session will discuss the need to implement revisions to ISO 9001:2015 with a goal of improvement and value. It's possible and highly likely that a system that is established and implemented to reach its goals, create value and experience improvement will logically produce results that will satisfy an auditor.
