Gary L. Phillips - 2007

I have discussed this numerous times at various functions (with different responses) and was wondering if anyone at the Cove has ever developed a Quality Manual which was based on the eight Quality Management Principles i.e.: those principles which were used to develop the 9001:2000 set of requirements? My view is that such a manual would definitely personnalize the manual to the specific organization and should shed a lot of light into how their higher level (Big Q) management system operates, and also how they view issues relating to their own role, employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. All requirements of 4.2.2 would be included, however, other requirements would not necessarily be included as they are not specifically required to be included anyway.

This type of Quality Manual may help keep senior management 'calibrated' to those things that really matter for an organization to become successsful and achieve lasting sustainability in the market place.

I also feel that as a potential customer, being presented with such a Quality Manual would drive me to want to pursue negotions further with this vendor.
