Risk Based Thinking: Requirements, Tools and Options
The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 replaces the requirement for preventive action with risk-based thinking (RBT). While the intent was to alleviate confusion it has actually created more due to the introduction of terminology not widely used elsewhere. However, this greater variability in interpretation it also allows more flexibility to adapt to the context of each organization.
This 1-day workshop covers the specific risk-based thinking requirements, then compares and contrasts them with a formal risk management (RM) program. It exposes participants to a wide range of risk assessment/management techniques and processes, to show how RBT can be integrated into more formal risk management programs. Attendees will have the opportunity assess their organization’s compliance to the RBT requirements as well as conduct risk assessments for specific events, processes, and the QMS.
