Please join the ASQ PDX Section 0607 for a webinar with speaker Peter Merrill.

Webinar Description:

The ISO 56000 series is about innovation management. The primary focus of this session is ISO 56002 the guidance standard and explains how to implement this standard. It shows how a system approach to innovation is without a doubt the best approach. ISO 56002 is designed to integrate with an ISO 9001 QMS. An auditable version, ISO 56001, is being developed and you can use ISO 56002 to develop your IMS ahead of ISO 56001. You can start with strategy, as the standard does, or you can start with process, for a “contained” approach.
