Things To Consider When Looking For ISO Quality Management Consultants

At the end of the day, the reason you are employing a consultant is to save your time and provide you with a meaningful quality system that will enable you to delight more customers, grow your business or reach more service users, improve profits and ROI – AS QUICKLY & COST EFFECTIVELY AS POSSIBLE.

The fundamental reason for hiring a consultant is to reduce the time it takes to implement all the actions required to achieve certification.

A good consultancy firm will provide clear guidance regarding the criteria and base of evidence that the certification body’s auditors will be on the “look out” for by leading you through a step-by-step implementation programme.

Consultant Pitfalls!

Before you engage any consultants, it is always prudent to conduct due diligence first.

Why?  Well, a firm may claim be cost effective consultants. However in reality, they may know very little about doing this type of work or possess the necessary credentials or experience to back their claims up.

Secondly, if the consultancy is doing all the work by themselves without the involvement of your staff, the system documents will not reflect your actual business needs. So, after the consultant has stopped working for you, your staff will have no idea how to maintain the process and documents. The documents won’t be usable in your business and your staff may reject laid down processes

What Should You Look For In A Quality Management Consultancy?

iso-9001-costTrack Record

Who have they worked for? What kind of projects have they worked on?  Do the consultants make case studies of their work available? And are they happy for you to contact their clients to check them out?

In your due diligence research process, check out whether the consultants themselves hold ISO certifications.

Expertise Of Individual Consultants

Tailored Service

Siso-consultantspending money on a standard off the shelf “cut and paste” solution will provide little benefit for your company if it has no relevance to your business and your employees cannot manage the new system.

Ask yourselves these questions. Does the consultancy understand my business? Do the consultants use language my staff can understand? Will they adapt their solutions to suit the exact needs of my organisation or business?

ISO 9001 Certification Cost Effectiveness

Some companies go for the lowest cost option when selecting a consultant.

However, more often than not, this decision ends up costing them more in the long run.

You are right to obtain a competitive cost price for ISO 9001 consultancy services. But remember, the value that a good consultant brings will far outweigh the modest cost premium to engage their services.

Cheap consultancies are usually very low cost for any number of reasons like:

  • they are new to the market
  • they don’t have enough work
  • they don’t have the right experience, track record and expertise
  • they may not have a good reputation

At the end of the day, the reason you are employing a 9001 consultant is to save your time and provide you with a meaningful quality system that will enable you to delight more customers, grow your business or reach more service users, improve profits and return on investment.
