Determine the scope of the quality management system (QMS), your organization may decide to include only certain lines of business.

Setup a project sponsor, a project manager and a project team. Ensure top management support, get training about the standard. Designing and implementing a quality management system implies being knowledgeable about ISO 9001:2015.

As a first step perform a Gap analysis, to determine the amount of work to be done - comparing what your organization already has in place versus ISO 9001:2015 requirements. From that GAP Analysis you can develop your Project Plan, listing what needs to be done, by whom, until when.

Then, an important step is to design a model of how your organization work as a set of interrelated processes. For example:
