The 2015 version of ISO 9001 brings many enriching changes to promote quality excellence by organizations.
The most significant change is the reinforcement of the fact that ISO 9001 is not just a quality issue. It is relevant as an overarching management topic.
The book explains the requirements of the revised (2015) version of ISO 9001 in simple and practical manner. The objective has been to enhance understanding of the subject matter by managers and quality professionals.
A conceptual understanding shall enable managers and professionals to design better systems and processes uniquely suited to their respective organizations. In view of this the first five chapters of the book explain concepts on QUALITY, PROCESS, PROCESS APPROACH / MANAGEMENT and PDCA. These are relevant for all management system standards being developed by International Organization for Standardization with the High Level Structure.
Part II of the book goes into details of each clause focusing on processes and process interactions.
We expect that the readers will appreciate that ISO 9001, now focuses more on expected outcomes through processes than mandating too many requirements.
