Is this Fast Track for You?
In all three standards, paragraph 6.2.2 states the need for competence, awareness and training. Management and personnel in all departments from sales and marketing to engineering, purchasing, production, customer service, receiving, packaging, storage, shipping, and beyond will benefit from the purpose driven management systems that are necessary to deliver customer satisfaction and survive in the global economy. This course is not intended for those already familiar with the purpose and benefits of the standards. Additional Fast Tracks are forthcoming that will cover specific sections of the standards, their intent, and examples of their application in greater detail.
