Introduction to Modern Quality

New to Quality, and wanting to quickly build your understanding?  Or been working in Quality for a while, but feel you need to strengthen your understanding of what it’s really all about?

There’s a lot more to Quality than ISO 9001 and certification.  And the more you understand modern Quality, the greater will be your capability and success in actually applying Quality in your unique role and workplace.

This is a compact course intended for attendees who wish to acquire an understanding of Quality; its evolution over the last 100 years, the principles that define a successful Quality approach, the Quality tools and applications that are available, and how to select and apply the ones that are relevant to your industry.

Module 1 - Background, capability and maturity models.  A background to the foundations of modern Quality; the work of the gurus, and understanding your organisation’s maturity and capability in Quality.

Module 2 – Learn the Western and Japanese approaches.  Here you’ll gain an understanding of the different paths of Western and Japanese approaches, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Module 3 - Quality Principles 1: Customers and Leadership.  Here we’ll explore your organisation’s customers (internal & external, needs and expectations) and the way different leadership styles affect Quality outcomes.

Module 4 - Quality Principles 2: People and Process. How to identify your processes and align the relationship between people and traditional process thinking. Includes case studies to bring the subject to life.

Module 5 - Quality Principles 3: Evidence-based decisions and relationships. Delving into managing by facts and trends in an era of too much information, plus looking at the varying relationships that an organisation needs to manage.

Module 6 - Quality Principles 4: Improvement.  A full session exploring process and system improvement, with worked examples. Learn how to determine the role of customer feedback, suggestions and innovation in improvement.

Module 7 - Modern approaches and methodologies. An overview of the major current methodologies, you’ll understand the purpose of each, and the suitability for your organisation’s Quality maturity, context and quality strategy.

Module 8 – Bringing it all together, you’ll learn how to develop options and plans for managing your own Quality program.

Introduction to ISO 9001

You’re new to Quality, one of your customers has asked you to implement ISO 9001, or you’ve just been faced with the prospect of wrangling ISO 9001?

This course is designed with you in mind. It will give you the understanding of the ISO 9001 standard that you need, and confidence on how to apply it to your own organisation’s management system.

In just 4 weeks, you’ll cover everything you need to know to implement ISO 9001, with loads of tips, hints and shortcuts that are proven to get you there successfully. 

No previous knowledge or experience of ISO 9001 is required. 

The course covers

  • What is a management system and why it’s essential;
  • The 7 Principles that make it all work;   
  • Key themes in ISO 9001 that make it make sense;
  • Unpacking the standard: what it says, what it means, and how to do it;
  • How to implement ISO 9001 in a way that works; 
  • Where certification fits in and how to ensure it’s a positive experience.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the intent, structure and requirements of ISO 9001.  
  • To be able to apply ISO 9001 to your own business.
