Understand How You Can Implement and Leverage the Benefits of Risk-Based Thinking in Your QMS

The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 replaces the requirement for preventive action with that of risk-based thinking (RBT). While the intent is to alleviate confusion, it has actually created more due to the introduction of terminology not widely used elsewhere. However, although it may mean greater variability interpretation it also allows more flexibility to adapt to the context of each organization.

Concerns over the abstractions in the revised standard are valid, since they are likely to lead to greater inconsistency in interpretation by certified body auditors, and risk-based thinking has therefore created a lot of buzz. However, for organizations who take the time to understand the intent behind the terminology and apply it throughout the organization based on the principles of quality and risk management, such concerns will be minimal and the value gained will be high.

This webinar by our expert speaker, Duke Okes, who has conducted hundreds of workshops on ISO 9001, will discuss risk-based thinking as it relates to but is different from a formal risk management program, and provides examples of its application within a quality management system.

Session Highlights:

  • Identifying present activities that meets Risk-Based Thinking (RBT) requirements
  • Discover some potential RBT improvement opportunities
  • How poor QMS implementation can increase risk?
  • Linkage between RBT and the process approach
  • What evidence could you provide of RBT?
  • Examples of RBT applied to operational processes (e.g., customer requirements, purchasing, design, production)
  • Examples of RBT applied to system management processes (e.g., nonconforming material, internal audit, corrective action)
  • Making RBT an organizational improvement opportunity
