ISO 9001 was formed in order to address complex quality management systems, in which a single person could not control the quality of a process. A bad system can, and will, beat a good employee any day – and to solve this issue, ISO was formed.

During this webinar, our expert speaker William A. Levinson will walk you through the subject of ISO 9001:2015, delivering useful information on the subject which will help you with your professional duties. The training will focus on risk, but many other subjects will be touched upon, so you gain an overall understanding of the subject as well.

The session will begin with a general introduction to ISO 9001, and how it originated. Our speaker will then broach the subject of risk, and expand on it in detail through the course of the webinar. That includes types of risks, controlling risk, definitions of risk (General Carl von Clausewitz, Tom Peters), correlation between exposure and risk, and the Hazard Identification and Risk Analysis process (HIRA), as depicted in the Army’s Risk Management Process. This is an easily available public domain resource.Our speaker will also discuss supply chain risks, and how those are different from other types of risks. New technology and new distribution channels (and the risks involved in these) will be discussed next. The webinar will be concluded with a discussion about self-made risks, with the EpiPen controversy as an example. Attend the webinar to learn about this subject, so you can perform your duties better.

All webinar attendees will be provided handouts which will help them remember and make the most of the training they have received. These include a PDF file with slides, as well as notes and references from the webinar.
