My colleagues kept borrowing this book from me, and now we have 6 more copies at the office between all of us.
The italicized text in the book generally has the same meaning as the actual text from ISO 9001: 2015, but the two commonly don't mach each other.
Section 5.2.1 Establishing the quality policy:
The book reads
"Fits the organization's purpose, environment, and strategy"
ISO 9001: 2015 reads "is appropriate to the purpose and context of the organization and supports its strategic direction;"
There are similar differences throughout the book.
Otherwise the book is informative and it's been a good resource.
When he came back, I must say, he could not stop talking about what a good book it was. Early this year, he took and online class from ASQ, which he deemed "worthless." He said the ASQ class simply regurgitated the standard with no explanation. "ISO 9001:2015 In Plain English" is a perfect title for this book, he explained, as it does just what it says -- it makes the transition to 2015 easy to understand without any pretentiousness.
Perhaps the best testament to this book is my colleague's statement, "I enjoyed reading it." Imagine -- a book about ISO 9001 described as "enjoyable!"
I love this book!!! It's an easy read and it gave me a positive outlook on the implementation of the ISO 9001:2015 transition! I have already suggested this to many colleagues that are now in the process of transitioning to the ISO 9001:2015 standard. This book is a MUST have for you and your organization if you are looking for a simple, easy way to transition to the new standard.
Thanks Mr. Craig Cochran for such a great resource!!
