Course Content

The course combines lectures, videos and practical examples.


ISO 9001 – The Basics
The course starts with an overview of ISO 9001, what it is and what it is used for. We then take a high-level view of how the standard applies to different organizations, what they could gain from it, and what certification entails. Next we review the impact that a well implemented ISO 9001 system has on employees and their work. And last but not least, we share with you what pitfalls got to be avoided to make ISO 9001 a success.

The Pros and Cons of ISO 9001
This part of the course is designed to help you to weigh the pros and cons when deciding on how to proceed with ISO 9001. In addition, we show you how to mitigate the cons if you decide to move forward with ISO. We start by reviewing the external and internal benefits you can expect from certification. Next we analyze the potential downsides before explaining several important strategies for success.

Overview of the ISO 9001:2015 Requirements
For executives and managers it's usually not necessary to learn all ISO 9001 requirements. Instead we explain the essence of the seven requirement sections so you understand how the standard promotes good business practices and how you can apply the requirements to your organization.

ISO 9001 – An Implementation Overview
In this part we give you an overview of the five steps for implementation and explain what each entails. We also discuss the role that leaders play and their contribution to making the implementation project a success.
