Management Review Checklist
To do this effectively, bring together key points of the quality system:
- Identification of Key Processes (those processes to be included in the QMS)
- Identification of Quality Objectives for the processes
- Monitoring and measuring QMS processes
The 9000 Store Documented Quality System brought these three pieces together, making management review very data-driven and quantitative. Management identifies measurements to be made and quality objectives. At management review, improvement goals can be evaluated and new goals identified, leading to continual improvement.
Management review should also address quality planning:
Quality planning includes upcoming projects, status of ongoing projects and their effect on the QMS, as well as ways to drive continuous improvement like ISO 9004 and ISO 10014.
