Effective Processes: Updating Your Management Approach Is Key Transition Step

John R. Broomfield writes that, depending on the maturity of your management system, the next two steps in making an effective transition to ISO 9001:2000 will either be a piece of cake or the hardest medicine you swallow. Broomfield explores Actions 3 (enable top management to show its commitment) and 4 (assess the degree of conformity to ISO 9001:2000 and its 41 new requirements) in his 16-step plan for making an effective transition. He notes that your transition to ISO 9001:2000 represents an opportunity to overcome your QMS challenges and join those leading organizations that have benefited from a 21st century management system for a number of years.
