I have this recurring nightmare that just won’t go away.
So, there I am… I’ve just woken up from a nap on my favorite recliner in my living room. I’m still a bit groggy, but I look down and see my young daughter looking up at me intently through her hazel eyes. Really, she’s staring at me.
I sit there for a few moments, looking back at her and then I ask “what is it, Virginia?”
She looks away for a moment, looks back into my eyes and then asks the question parents don’t expect their children to ask until after they’ve had “the talk.”
Then she asks me:
18 July 2012 was an important day for those of us who pay attention to international standards. Why? Because it was the date that ISO published this document on the pending makeover of the management systems standards.
One could consider this from a surface perspective (i.e. how a management system standard is organized) and completely miss the point!
“So, what’s the point?”, you might ask?
It’s about demonstrating conformance, people!
