ISO 9001 / The needs for and benefits of ISO 9001

I am extern Consultant/advisor for a new started Swedish manufacturing Company. We are now in the start-up phase and I think of the kick-off of the Project. I am preparing some high-level information that I want to have top management approval of. The needs for and benefits of ISO 9001, a roadmap for the Project execution explaining the main steps, etc.

But at that stage, there is no quality policy in Place and I am not sure whether the Company actually has any specific quality objectives yet?

My goal is to give top management a Project overview, align expectations (achievements, timelines, Resources), clarify the importance of top management´s commitment, etc. How does this sound in your ears?

Your general approach sounds good.

Starting with management commitment is of paramount importance, they signal what is important and they command access to resources. Please check these articles:

Once settled the importance of implementing a quality management system, I recommend performing a Gap Analysis - 
Should you use a gap analysis in your ISO 9001 implementation? - https://advisera.com/9001academy/17/use-gap-analysis-iso-9001-implementation/ you can try our free online tool - Free ISO 9001:2015 Gap Analysis Tool - https://advisera.com/9001academy/iso-9001-gap-analysis-tool/

After performing a Gap Analysis we have an idea of what needs to be done, and we can start planning the implementation project:

A free downloadable template - Project Plan for ISO 9001 implementation - https://info.advisera.com/9001academy/free-download/project-plan-for-iso-9001-implementation-ms-word
The quality policy and quality objectives will be outcomes of the implementation project.

We are glad that you bought the Toolkit. Please consider this reflection - ISO 27001 documents – Why the templates are not enough? - https://advisera.com/27001academy/blog/2012/04/24/the-documentation-myth-why-the-templates-are-not-enough/
