Why Should Your Organization Get ISO 9001 Certified?

The ISO 9001 Standard is a tool that can help you better manage your organization. Like any other business tool, how much it helps will depend on how well you put it to use. This requires your organization to be clear on the benefits to be gained and how it plans to use ISO 9001 to achieve them.

ISO 9000 quality management system standards has been around for over 30 years. Well over a million organizations have been certified to one or more of the various ISO published business management system standards. Many studies have been conducted on the impact of these standards on industry and and the overall feedback on how it has helped companies is summarized below:

External Benefits
•  Increased business competitive edge and market share
•  Improved customer confidence and satisfaction
•  Improved conformity to customer and regulatory quality requirements

Internal Benefits
•  Improved operational efficiency and productivity
•  Improved process consistency and stability
•  Facilitated continual improvement
•  Improved focus and effectiveness of training programs
•  Improved employee motivation and participation
•  Led to improved supplier performance
•  Increased business profitability

The extent of these benefits obviously vary from one organization to another, but those organizations that planned and implemented ISO 9001 using external professional help gained far superior results, both in terms of speed of implementation and effectiveness of results. The payback on investment was recouped anywhere between 1-2 years, often sooner.
