October 2017 Dinner Meeting & Volunteer Appreciation

An ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System as an Organizational Process Asset

CCRS Category: Technical

Presenter: Chad Dehmler


Overview: With the realization that some organizational cultures don’t recognize that a quality management system is an Organizational Process Asset (OPA) and with a dearth of materials on the actual use of an ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) to support project management, Chad developed the informative presentation that you will hear in order to help Project Managers provide the impetus to use the ISO 9001:2015 standard and its sections as elements of a successful project management methodology.

The presentation theme reviews the salient points of an ISO 9001:2015 QMS, their interrelation with the PMBOK® knowledge areas, and how they can be used in developing and maintaining a project management methodology. Additionally, the sections of the standard can be used as building blocks and tools to accomplish the objectives of projects within an organizations project portfolio.
