From ISO 9001 to a leaky dam as a cautionary tale of risk management

Published: Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 08:40

Our most recent episode of QDL from this past Friday offered a nice mix of content covering the pros of regulations, transitioning to ISO 9001, the human case for going slow on artificial intelligence, and some dam risk management.

Here’s a closer look:

Deregulation Under Trump Won’t Create a Windfall for Manufacturers

The benefits of deregulation for businesses are dubious, as Dirk makes clear in  his comments on this article from Peter Bussey of LNS Research.

Critical Upgrade for ISO 9001-Certified Organizations

Here Dirk interviewed Manuel Marco, director of sales, North American Western Territory, for DNV GL Business Assurance, about what you need to know to transition to ISO 9001:2015. Be sure to register for the webinar on this topic, too.

In our weekly forum, I asked Dirk for his thoughts on risk management and potential disaster at the our local Oroville dam.

Tune in this coming Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, for our next episode of Quality Digest Live. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
