Perform meaningful Management Reviews quickly and efficiently
ISO 9001:2015 requires top management review of an organization’s quality management system (QMS). This provides an important opportunity for a quality manager to present to upper management a State of the Union-style report on the organization’s quality health. The key is to understand the intent of the management review requirements. ISO 9001:2015 clause 9.3.1 states: "Top management shall review the organization’s quality management system, at planned intervals, to ensure its continuing suitability, adequacy, effectiveness, and alignment with the strategic direction of the organization.” The intent of this passage is to ensure continuing suitability, adequacy, effectiveness, and alignment with the strategic direction of the organization. The Management Review Module pairs directly with this need and serves to make confusing management reviews a thing of the past.
