Our ISO certification follows the following process to make the implementation hassle-free:
1. Conduct GAP Analysis
The first step in Gap Analysis is to study the existing procedures and policies being present and carried out within the organization and further, discover the goals the organization needs to achieve with the compliance towards the standard and comparing/assessing it against the particular ISO standard requirements/clauses- to identify the Gaps and the extent of the Gap. Identifying the issues and the problematic areas and trying to find mechanisms to solve them is the first step that needs to accomplish.
2. Identify the ideal future state and Provide training to Employees:
Once you studied the current business structure and policies of an organization you need to focus on obtaining the certificate after accomplishing and compliance with the standard with the future objective to be obtained and build the bridge to fill the current and future state of an organization.
Generally, Gap Analysis is done when the Organization wants to comply with the requirements of a standard. So the Organization’s current state is being compared with the requirements of the standard by providing relevant training to the employees of the organization.
3. Evaluate the solutions
Completing the 2 above initial steps is the most crucial for gap analysis. Identifying the solutions ex. procedures and policies, training and competencies, action plans, setting up of objectives and targets, data analysis, and continual improvement methods- to gain the desired result by following all the rules and regulations of the standard and need to fill the missing gap in the strategy to effectively bridge the gap.
This stage includes developing all relevant and mandatory documentation eg Manuals, Procedures, and SOPs, Operational Controls, Work Instructions, Forms/records, etc. The documentation stage actually tells what the Process/System should be.
5. Implementation of the plans
Implementation actually means, implementing the documentation- the manual, procedures, work instructions, operational controls, also incorporating the ISO standard clause requirements. Implementation is generally to maintain records and evidences, including analysis and statistical analysis results. After you have detected and charted the possible and best way to bridge the gap, you need to implement the plans and procedures and even still need to convince others as it will affect the working tactics and departments in an organization. So, you need to come up with an impressive strategy and plans to get everyone on the board.
6. Analysis of the implementation
There are many tools to bridge the gap. After the implementation of the plan, you need to analyze the output and result to achieve the desired result. You can choose, visualize, implement, and prepare documentation of each step and changes made in the procedure and policies to comply with the guidelines of the standard to achieve certification.
7. Final Step SWOT analysis
SWOT analysis is one of the oldest tactics followed to identify the strength, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of an organization. It performs quantitatively as well as qualitatively to determine the strength and weaknesses of an organization against the standards’ requirements. This helps in the study of the pros and cons of the implemented procedure and policies and helps you to identify the outcome of an organization. It helps to identify your market value and the position of your business in society.
8. Internal Audit and Corrective Action
