Common Challenges of ISO 9001 Certification
The common challenge of an ISO 9001 certification that many organizations face is the creation of complicated or unnecessary solutions in response to the guidance requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 Standard. These scenarios leave most companies needing ISO implementation help.
Over-engineering your standard
By over-engineering your operations, organizations expend resources and time, as well as have a less favorable opinion of the benefits of implementing ISO 9001.
Since each organization will have a different interpretation of the ISO 9001 requirements and clauses making the ISO Implementation difficult, many organizations choose to enlist the support of an ISO consultant to help.
Conduct an initial gap analysis
One of the preliminary steps in an ISO implementation initiative is to conduct an initial gap analysis to strategically identify business operations and align quality directives. Conducted by ITG’s experienced ISO Consultants this ISO implementation help will:
- Reduce the timeframe for implementation;
- Minimize the costs associated with implementation and maintenance of requirements;
- Transform existing practices to meet requirements and minimize impact to the organization’s operations;
- Instruct staff on expectations of the standard; and
- Ensure successful achievement of certification.
