Our org. has been ISO9000 registered for about a year..the boss perceives quality is not the front burner topic among line supervisors that it was during the registration process..his question: How do other companies sustain the involvement of first and mid-level managers??..any suggestions out there?

Thumbscrews may be appropriate for some.

Seriously, your internal audits and the observance of non-conformaties coupled with preventive and corrective actions should be motivators.

Also if top management utilizes the information gained from your internal audit program and ties it in with the good old periodic performance review of the 1st and mid-level management some continued interest may take hold.

If the continuation of the "profit side" of the business is at stake then the stockholders will be the ones to generate interest amongst the top level management to keep conformance on the front burner.

Just a guess on my part...then again the "Rack" may work also...

Leadership. Senior level must communicate the AIM of the organization. It is their job!
