|"Quality Management is about satisfying the needs and expectations of customers, while meeting the objectives of your own organisation"
To consistently achieve a high level of performance and continuously improve, it is not viable to rely on a few individuals - there must be systems in place.
Quality management systems are typically based on the international standard ISO9001. This is the most widely recognised standard in the world. Most observers agree that its tenets are grounded in good business practice, and a practical system can offer many benefits to an organisation. An ISO9001 Quality Management System can be implemented in just about any industry, size, or type of organisation.
The challenge for business owners and managers is to interpret its requirements in a way that suits their organisation and circumstances, to implement a system that effectively and efficiently works for them.
