LSS+ISO 9001:2015 = Maybe at Risk, but Not in Peril

Organizational risk often hides in the "hidden factory" where waste is produced. Lean processes are transparent and make it easier to spot risk. LSS implementation can be used to eliminate or mitigate both product and process risk, thus fulfilling the requirements of key elements of ISO 9001:2015. The relationship between process improvement and risk management will be explored in this session, creating an understanding that managing performance successfully also means managing risk effectively. Attendees will also discuss how risk-based thinking helps create an environment where LSS and other improvement activities can thrive.
