How to employ risk-based thinking within a QMS process

The upcoming release of ISO 9001:2015 will require risk-based thinking (RBT) related to how the quality management system (QMS) impacts the ability to achieve organizational objectives. While each organization might emphasize risk management in some QMS processes more than others, one where all will need to incorporate RBT is the internal audit process. Doing so will help ensure that audit resources are more focused on the processes having higher potential impact on organizational performance. This will not only increase the value of quality audits but also help link them to the enterprise risk management (ERM) process.

Financial auditors have been conducting risk-based audits for more than a decade. Given the visibility of organizational failures in today's world, as well as the need to more efficiently utilize resources (auditors, process owners), it's time for the same concepts to be applied to quality (and other) management system audits. In effect, applying risk management concepts and tools to the audit process will result in better alignment of the QMS and organizational priorities and risks.

This webinar by Duke Okes will explain how to use risk-based thinking in the quality management system. You will get simple tools for assessing risks within a QMS process. Further, you will understand how to report audit nonconformities from a risk-based perspective.
