Whether you are a scholar, business executive, quality manager, consultant or a Certification Body, this book is for you. He goes out of his way to change the misconception of what the ISO 9001:2015 standard is really all about. He meticulously explains that it is aimed at improved performance and not just a set of requirements for compliance. David convinces the reader that Quality should be managed as an integral part of every business.

It is suitable for all people involved in the standard from company directors who need to know more about their responsibilities to experienced and busy Quality Managers who need to implement and inform others about the changes.

The book does a great job of showing how a quality system built to the principles of ISO 9000 and conforming to the new ISO 9001:2015 requirements can be an integral part of leadership’s strategic approach to running the business versus letting a quality management system operate in a silo.

The book explores and explains the ISO 9001:2015 requirements in a way that is easy to follow yet at the same time deep and meaningful especially for those new concepts and requirements such as leadership, context of the organization and managing risk. This feels like a book I’ll keep referring to for many years to come.
