LENGTH: One Hour
Objectives are an essential component of your quality management system. ISO 9001:2008 mentions quality objectives no less than 14 times. Basically, they allow us to measure our progress and improvement. How else can we determine how we’re doing and what we should do next? Without metrics you have no way of knowing if there has been a return on investment for an improvement initiative, capital expenditure or new product design.
Objectives are the essential links between day-to-day activities and strategic planning. They make it possible for individuals throughout the organization to monitor processes and communicate performance to the decision-makers.
