  • Overview
  • Resources

Management responsibility requires a commitment to quality and making a quality management system (QMS) a strategic goal. Because a QMS is comprised of numerous interrelated or interacting processes, the standard encourages a process-based approach (i.e. the identification and interactions of these processes and their management). In QMS 1, participants will learn about the process approach and how to manage processes through the use of quality tools.
