An organisation’s management system is the glue that holds everything together. When correctly implemented it enables management, office and shop floor workers to work in a coordinated and focused manner towards the stated business strategy and objectives.
The management system should enable a business to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements while enhancing customer satisfaction.
ISO 9001:2015 is a globally recognised and auditable Quality Management System with over 1 million certificates issued in 2015 alone. It is the benchmark standard used by most businesses today in over 170 countries.
It details best practice and includes within it topics such as Context, Leadership, Planning, Support, Operation, Performance Evaluation and Improvement. The management system boundaries cover everything from design and development, supplier integration, evaluation and control through to obtaining and acting upon customer feedback and requirements.
The GBS Managing Management Systems course has been designed to equip management and quality professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to implement, review and manage this globally recognised standard.
This interactive 3 day course is available either as a public, in-house or digitally-delivered course.
Completion of two Practitioner level courses, together with demonstrable work experience, can lead to the gold standard Chartered Quality Professional (CQP) status, which is recognised alongside other roles with Chartered status.
