ISO 9001:2008 – Yawn-Fest or Exciting Achievement?


If you’re an old-timer like me, you probably yawn when someone talks about quality. We all know about the tsunami of Japanese quality processes and the resurgence of quality in the U.S. and around the world. We are bored with terms like TQM quality-centric. But, we shouldn’t be!

Our customers, employees, partners, suppliers and stakeholders may not understand the detail, learning and dedication required for IT quality assurance and processes, but they certainly understand and they will stay with us if we remain devoted to quality and excellence.

If you work in the technology field and/or buy or staff technology services, ISO Quality Management (QMS) is a familiar term. Companies that certified for ISO approach every development, testing, maintenance, support and IT consulting task with proven methodologies to ensure positive outcomes for the clients and optimal resource utilization for the IT consultant or partner.

I recently attended a technology conference and was chatting with one of the presenters. I asked her, “What is toughest challenge you face as a technology expert?” She said that the pace of global technology change has increased to the point where it is nearly impossible for the average business person to keep up. When she is asked to consult, she first has to educate clients on the types of technologies available and the need to remain competitive with apps and functionality delivered via mobile devices.We are all struggling to keep pace with technology and, if we don’t understand the value of mobile applications and the return on investment for a well-conceived, well designed mobile app, we are missing a huge opportunity for our business.
