Delighted to announce that I have uploaded six new videos that take you on a gentle stroll through the new standard as part of the series “Amanda Asks About Auditing”. We literally flip through the standard as I explain what’s different and where some of the existing items from 9001:2008 have been relocated.

Here’s a quick trailer so you can see what I mean and get a feel as to how we cover it all. It’s quite funky as well!

You can check out the full series here where you will also catch a glimpse in the VIP area of another video idea that we are working on.

Be great to hear what you think when you’ve had chance to watch it.



Recognising that businesses need information as quickly as possible in order to implement it and gain benefits,  I am now offering the full set of ISO 9001 Training Guide videos under the banner “9001 – The Collection”.  Rather than work through the free series each fortnight for six months you can be in total control of what you watch and when you watch it.

The aim is still the same, to lighten the load for the beleaguered Management Representatives who are often left to run the system on their own. You will hear me empathise with that situation here in the video taken from the new website:

Below are a selection of the comments I have received from subscribers of the free series and I feel they are testament to the warmth of feeling being displayed towards these videos:

* The videos are fabulous.  Your blog is a goldmine – and that and your videos have been a particular help to me.  Your clear communication style is wonderful, and one I want our audit team to try and emulate. You’ve gone viral here at Midland. Thank you for making this available and sharing your knowledge.  I hadn’t intended to write a fan letter, sorry I went on, but I wanted you to know your work is much appreciated. JB, Chicago, USA

* I would just like to say how informative and professionally set up your videos are, they really are priceless. TM, Kent, UK

* I would just like to start off by saying that I am thrilled to have your programme help me with my ISO journey that I have recently been put in charge of implementing at my company.  I am very new to all this and you are a saving grace to me.  I can’t thank you enough for your valuable insight. NW, California, USA

* Thanks Pete, the blog and the videos are actually a gold mine. Thanks a tonne , I  have recently been appointed as the MR for my organisation and I did not know where to start. JWT, Nairobi, Kenya

* I commend you for providing a wealth of great information that is easy to follow and gets you thinking about those methods in implementing good auditing techniques.  I especially like the Audit Methodology sections to help re-enforce the concepts and create new ideas on how to improve upon ones system. These are great refresher courses for all auditors at any level.  Thanks again, I look forward to receiving more information and reading your blogs.TL, Ohio, USA

* At the outset, I must thank you and congratulate you for your work. The guides are simply too good. The guides will help me conduct Internal Process Audits and design and improve upon the various checklists on the shop-floor. Looking forward for to a great association with you. AP, India

The new site has free samples for you to view so all you need to do is click onto “9001 – The Collection” so you can take advantage of them as well.

ps: By the way, subscribers to this blog should email me using the link at the very bottom of that website for news of a special discounted offer on The Collection!

It is pleasing to hear that these guides are actually starting to make a difference to my subscribers with one recently responding:

“So far you have already helped me with our supplier quality management and prompted me to add audit corrective actions onto the database I use for product non-conformances so I can review them all together. I couldn’t wait for the last one to arrive”.

I have therefore now uploaded more samples from this series that are aimed at Management Representatives of companies using the standard so as to support them as they manage and develop their system.  With subscribers now on board in Germany, Italy and China you too can check out content before subscribing.

The latest topics added include Control of Non-Conforming Product, writing the Quality Policy; setting Quality Objectives and using a Skill Matrix for training records.  Others will follow on Sales orders, Works orders and Document Control.  The full series will grow into an indispensable guide for the Management Representatives and Quality Professionals alike.  Check out one on Quality Objectives here:

You can find the full set of samples on Utube on the QualityAuthority channel or go to the web site to take up the free subscription for the full series of ISO 9001 Training Guides.

I have been well pleased with how positive the feedback has been for this series of  Training Guides.  In addition it has been fascinating to hear of the diverse reasons people have had for subscribing in the first place.   With several groups now running the next stage is to make some sample vids available on Utube so people can get a feel for what they are about and how they might assist them in their role as Management Representative.

Uploaded so far are snippets on Common Mistakes with Correctives Action, Approved Suppliers List and the one below on Identification and Traceability.  Excerpts from Non-conforming Product, the Quality Policy and Quality Objectives will follow shortly.

Companies who install quality management systems are often left to their own devises once the system is installed. To me this is the time when they need the practical support so they get their house in order before the audit. Having worked with many sites to put a system in, I have been very staggered by the lack of good stuff out there so have decided to do something about it. Check it out via this ISO 9001 Training Guides link and let me know what you think. The main web site is here.
