Use Baldrige Performance Excellence Program to Meet ISO 9001:2015 Challenges


Terry Burns Of Burns & Associates of Richmond, Virginia recently presented "What's all the fuss about ISO 9001:2015?" to ASQ Raleigh.


Mr. Burns made a case for using the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program for meeting the new ISO 9001:2015 requirements. The Baldrige Excellence Builder is available in a free download here.

The Baldrige documents can offer direction in understanding the new standard by offering explanations of similar clauses.

ISO certified organizations have 3 years to transition to the new 2015 standard. Some of the changes are:

  • New Annex SL Format

  • 10 Clauses (from 8)

  • More easily lines up with other standards

  • "Risk-based" language replaces "preventative action"

  • Inclusion of Planning to achieve quality objectives

  • New Quality System Management model (Leadership is center)

  • Services added to Products (before it was implied)

  • Quality Manual no longer required (with some exceptions)

  • Audit top management to insure hands on involvement - drive quality management to top levels

  • Process focused
