An ISO 9001 certification is very important for an organization as it helps improve overall business performance while ensuring customer satisfaction. However, many organizations have trouble implementing and benefiting from the certification to its fullest.
It can be tough to convince the management to invest time, money and resources required into the implementation, but here’s how you can make it happen:
1. Find Top Management That Could Benefit From It
Sometimes it helps to have an ally. Find someone in the organization whose department can benefit from the certification. Some examples are:
- A manager of the finance department who can lower risk and cut expenses as a result of reduced inefficiencies
- A marketing manager can use the certification in marketing and sales materials
- It’ll help the HR manager streamline the number of employees in the company
By convincing the right people to support the cause, you will gain better insight into the management’s mindset and have a better shot at implementing the certification.
2. Be Ready To Make Your Case
Set up a meeting with a top management with a small pitch that explains the benefits of hiring an ISO 9001 consultant. It would help to have some stats ready to make a good case.
3. Arrange An Easy To Understand Presentation
Suppose you’re asked to present to the board. In this situation, it is important to understand that the management cares about how the certification will help the company, instead of its technical details.
Your presentation should be simple and easy to understand, so do not overload it with industry jargon. Focus on how the certification will help sales, increase credibility and improve your organization’s market standing.
4. Relate To the Company
So, instead of saying that it’s an industry standard, point out how many of your competitors have implemented it. In addition to listing the industry titans that have the certification, point out the number of potential clients that you can gain as a result of an ISO 9001 consulting services.
This will help the management see how it’ll benefit the company’s operations in actuality.
