Mini-Quiz: Simple Plan for ISO 9000 Certification

by Ron Kurtus (revised 29 November 2005)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What view should upper management have toward ISO 9000?

They must believe it is valuable to the company

They should tolerate the pet projects of their Quality people

They should resist it with all their influence

2. Why simulate an ISO 9000 audit?

To find any possible loopholes

To keep employees on alert

To make sure you don't fail the real thing

3. Why bother with a third-party auditor?

It is cheaper than having your own people waste their time

It is required for certification

It is not really necessary

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Improving your Business with ISO 9000. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Try to help others succeed
