1. Preparing your organization
Before committing to implement an ISO system standard
, every personnel of the organization should be made known and aware of this initiative. The management's involvement is crucial in this stage, as they need to make sure everyone understands the concept of the standard and how it will affect them in their daily tasks, procedures, formalities as well as the organization.
This is where you will need to dedicate a committee or team (usually head of departments) that will be assisting for the implementation process. Every person should be alert of their roles and responsibility. This also includes whether you will require any third-party assistance. The implementation strategy is different for every organization, as well as the time frame of it.
