The October 2014 IndyASQ Dinner Meeting will be held Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at the University of Indianapolis.
Auditing Beyond Compliance
Auditing Beyond Compliance (ABC) is an approach different from the traditional auditing programs. Traditional audits focus primarily on compliance with little or no coverage on the other elements of an effective quality program such as risk evaluation, mitigation and continuous improvement. Yes, compliance is key to the success of any organization as it is the foundation of the system and the benchmark of improvement and growth initiatives. A simple model built around the concept of Auditing Beyond Compliance is a tool for initiating the discovery of your system’s ‘hidden factories’. Hidden factories include the many forms of risks (such as process variations, wastes, etc) not typically uncovered during the traditional compliance audits. This model can also be applicable in preparing your system for the upcoming ISO change to ensure continued compliance and at the same time apply basic lean tools in identifying improvement opportunities. It is not required to have a lean experience to understand and implement this ABC model.
