Has anyone had to present top management with an executive overview of the changes for ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949? If so, would you be able to provide a copy? I have suggested that they attend a course offered in our area however this was not agreed upon. I have been tasked on providing our management with some sort of a presentation and am lost on how to approach this. Any help would be much appreciated!
Actually, this task is much easier than preparing a generic overview. In my career, I've prepared and presented over a thousand different presentations. Some were one-off (like yours is) and many were for multiple presentations to audiences of different industries, education, experience, and responsibility within an organization.
First, with your limited target audience, you ought to find out what the present knowledge level of each was for the preceding requirements and how those requirements specifically applied to your organization. Then, you identify the changes (if any) to those pertinent parts of the requirements and how or what (if anything) your organization will need to change to comply. Finally, prepare a brief overview of time, equipment or facilities, personnel training, and money necessary to implement those changes (essentially a list of action items the bosses will have to consider to bring the organization into compliance.)
In real terms, most organizations have very few changes to make to upgrade compliance to the revised Standard. Only those pertinent to YOUR organization need be included in the overview. The one dread most executives have in attending presentations by subordinates is TMI (too much information) without a simple outline of actions needed. This, I suspect, is why attending the course given by a third party was rejected.
(Alternately, I and other Consultants who are regulars in the Cove would consider doing this for a fee that would most likely be more than the cost of your time away from other duties, but less than the cost of sending an executive team away from the premises to attend a third party course.)
