QAIs ISO FASTRACK PROGRAM:
This is a proven, structured approach to Implementing ISO or TS 16949. We treat ISO Implementation as a formal project with milestone charts and action items. It entails training, documentation, implementation and auditing to assure “ISO Readiness”. Organizations having as few as fifty and as many as twenty-two thousand employees have embraced it.

QAIs 7-STEP ISO ROADMAP:
This is the MODEL that we overlay on our ISO FASTRACK PROGRAM: It has been derived from more than ten years of ISO Implementation experience. Its roots are based on group dynamics, that is, working with small groups of people to reach organizational goals, improving the Quality System and achieving ISO certification. It starts with Management Commitment. There are no surprises in our approach. Without strong, clear, unwavering Management Commitment to the ISO Project, no amount of consulting can “muscle” ISO into place.
