Implementing ISO 9001 without a Consultant
Implementing ISO 9001 without a consultant can seem like a daunting task. Although a consultant will reduce the time of implementing a QMS, there are many downfalls. First, consultants are expensive. Second, hiring a consultant often means, your organization never established employee involvement and is unfamiliar with the QMS processes. Third, top manangement will not have learned the ins and outs of the QMS. and therefore will not be able to maintain the QMS to keep it up and running effectively and efficiently.
On the other hand implenenting ISO 9001 without a consultant and with no templates is extremely time consuming and can be problematic. As an ISO 9001 Consultant myself, I understand the burden that is placed on quality managers and others that are asked to lead this project. It can be a difficult task – reading the standard and trying to apply it in your organization, but that is why we are here to help. Your organization is different from all others, so how does the standard apply to it?

“We had our pre-audit on Wednesday and did very well on it. I want to thank you for all the help in getting us to the point where we are now. We went it alone like you had said we could and we are very happy with the results. When we started this I was worried it would be too much to handle because of all the documentation involved. Your ISO 9001-2015 doc’s were a godsend. By doing it without a consultant, I believe you get a lot better understanding of the quality system.”
