THE NEW ISO 9001:2015 - NIK ZAFRI

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE NEW ISO 9001:2015 (PART 1)

Disclaimer : Most of the contents here are not the 'actual/literal' text of the actual new ISO 9001:2015. It's the personal interpretation of the author.

0.1 – QMS as a strategic decision, a robust Quality Management Systems (QMS) – to help organization to improve its overall performance and forms an integral component of sustainable development. Design and implementation of QMS is influenced by the context of organization and   (including) the changes.

Definition

a. Strategic– Identification of long term/overall aims and interest and means to achieve them (taking into account coping up with fundamental changes – susceptible to the surroundings (what is happening around you) – law, competition, regulations, standards, trends, new technology, innovation, Research and Development etc.)

b. Robust– a process, system able to withstand or overcome adverse conditions (defects, non-conformance, corrective action request)

c. Improve overall performance – integral component of sustainable development– no system is perfect, it should be improved and become part and parcel of company's culture to achieving excellence.

d. Designed and Implemented by the sort of industry-specific – service/product provided by the company (to achieve such purpose – goals and objectives) – customization/tailor-made (1)

The rest of the content in 0.1 also talks about culture (already covered), external factors – socio-economic conditions under which it operates) – when we talk about socio-economic conditions – it talks about how the process - impacts the general public, public perception, surroundings  – possibly employment opportunity and most important – the organization must realize its financial capacity –not to do something way beyond their ability. Do something that suits the organization ONLY  (2)

Also touched on QMS can differ from one organization to another(See (1) - customization)

0.2 – not much have been changed except more emphasis is given in point no. 2 – ISO 9001 – improved internal communication, better understanding and control of process – reduction in defects and waste 

(the only way to do all these is to adopt principle of “no walls, no politics, no overlapping of duties, no pinpointing, no blaming culture” - so 100 points go to"Improved Internal Communication"  - everything starts here....

and also point no. 4 of 0.2 – ISO 9004 which touches on configuration management; apart from other elements – quality plan, project QM, measurement process/equipment, documentation, (and again - ) financial/economic benefits of the system (See (2), Statistics etc.

Definition

Configuration Management - system engineering process for establishing and maintaining consistency of a product's (or services) performance, functional and physical attributes with its requirements, design and operational information throughout its life.

0.3– comprehensive process-approach explained in better details. What's interesting are the words “understood” and “understanding” are being used. It means that the system HAS to be understood – on company-wide basis.

There is no point making a system only to be understood by a certain 'exclusive top management level'.

How to make everyone understand?

Mind you, I'm not talking about the typical 
(word by word) memorizing the policy or objectives – remember UNDERSTAND is totally different than MEMORIZE....

a laymen understanding – is to understand QMS in their OWN work! (refer Job Description and Responsibilities/Authorities) – if these are not clear, DON'T HOPE everyone to understand – you will receive typical provoking comments from them just like when the previous system was implemented - “This is not my job?” “Having ISO is like having NOTHING – no impact – nothing for me” - hence - they don't feel the system!

0.4 including Figure 1 and 2 talk about 'Plan-Do-Check-Act” in much more simple understanding but implementable.


0.5 Something new – Risk-Based Thinking (in fact it's partial risk management) – which I agree 100%.

Definition

Simply look back at your Management Review Meeting, Data Analysis and Continual Improvement Plan (if you have any - if you don't, then 'BIG TROUBLE') – now PROACTIVELY start identifying, assess and prioritize the risks (the effect of "uncertainty") – how do you that? 

Yes, look back at frequent problems in your data? 

And prioritize - put them according to order, mark them with RED, YELLOW or GREEN and discuss the solution further. You can also integrate ITP, HIRARC, SHASSIC, CONQUAS or whatever specific assessment/inspection system you have (if you have one - if you don't, then go for the normal inspection that you do - incoming, in-process and outgoing) etc. into it. 

No overlapping please...let all the system be harmonized and co-exist.

Now, should you have a full (projected) Risk Management Plan before starting the operation? (Preliminary, Design, Interim and Final) – if you have the time – the answer is YES!


Project Management - Critical Path Method - justify the RED ones by thinking outside the box (outside the software) - there must be alternative ways of justifying it. Yes, I have the great CPM and the 'technical S Curve'  but why is there still delay?

Just match it with your MRM Data...you'll be on the right track.

0.6– compatibility with other management systems – explained in greater details.

VERDICT?

Yes, the new ISO 9001:2015 is attempting to cover and solve ALL kinds of management and technical problems (sound kind of ambitious - don't you think?) – however, lots of cross-referencing need to be made. Act smart for a while...please

(wait for Part 2)

PELAN PERNIAGAAN (PITCHING) UNTUK GERAN, MODAL TEROKA DLL.

Mempunyai pelan perniagaan yang baik adalah faktor penentu yang membezakan antara permulaan yang berjaya atau permulaan yang gagal. Kadangkala laporan prestasi perniagaan yang dibentangkan terlalu tebal – tanpa memikirkan psikologi pelabur yang kadangkala tidak mempunyai masa untuk membaca laporan berkenaan. (Tidak kira apakah jenis instrumen yang ingin anda pohon - modal teroka, geran, seed capitalangel funds dll)

Photo Source : http://www.marsdd.com


Memahami kehendak pelabur amat penting kerana mereka adalah pembiaya kepada perniagaan anda. Antara perkara yang perlu diketengahkan ialah beberapa unsur yang penting sahaja yang sering menjadi perhatian kepada pendengar terhadap sesuatu pelan perniagaan.

Pastikan pembentang tahu apa kehendak industri yang diceburi dan mempunyai pandangan yang munasabah terhadap masa depan perniagaan yang ingin diketengahkan. Ini termasuklah strategi pemasaran dan pulangan kewangan.

Pertama, kenali dahulu skop perkhidmatan/produk ICT yang dibekalkan serta persaingannya. Ini adalah antara perkara yang paling penting. Contohnya isu yang boleh disentuh ialah :
  1. berapa besarkah industri ICT berkenaan,
  2. siapakah di antara pesaing yang kuat,
  3. kecepatan pertumbuhan industri ICT berkenaan,
  4. adakah industri ICT berkenaan merupakan perintis (yang unik atau pertama) atau hanya salah satu industri yang telah ramai berkecimpung di dalamnya,
  5. Bahagian pasaran manakah yang dapat menarik perhatian ramai,
Pelabur/Pembiaya biasanya ingin mendengar mengenai pasaran yang tumbuh dengan cepat dengan persaingan yang minima (contohnya segmen pasaran berkadar 20-30%)  Jika persembahan itu hanya mengenai sesuatu perisian – contohnya perisian pemprosesan perkataan (word-processing)‘kononnya’ bagi menggantikan MS-Word, maka persembahan berkenaan sudah pasti akan mencapai jalan yang buntu. Walaupun perisian berkenaan mendapat hakcipta sekalipun (ini juga kadangkala memerlukan kos yang tinggi) tetapi untuk bersaing dalam pasaran yang sering jauh lebih inovatif dan menyediakan pelbagai kelebihan, cadangan perniagaan berkenaan pasti akan mendapat sambutan yang hambar dari bakal pelabur.

Kedua, Model Pulangan dan Perniagaan –Pelabur sangat gemar kepada aliran hasil/keuntungan yang besar dan berulang-ulang serta meninggalkan kesan nilai tambah kepada pelanggan. Perkara yang perlu ditanya antara lain :
  1. apakah jenis perniagaan baru yang bakal dibina dan prospeknya? 
1.1 Perkakasan komputer (contohnya) - Perisian yang boleh dipasang (install) atau dimuatturun? - Sistem yang berinteraksi secara talian sahaja?

Ketiga, Bagaimana cara pembayaran?
  1. Adakah dengan sekali pembelian dan menanti pesanan baru?
  2. Hasil bulanan yang berulang-ulang?
  3. Penggunaan yang perlu dalam kuantiti yang banyak?
  4. Harga berbanding dengan pesaing?
  5. Apakah kelebihan unik yang ingin dipaparkan dalam pasaran atau hanya menggunakan cara yang umum digunakan oleh pengusaha lain?
Keempat, Pelan Pemasaran dan Jualan. Antara perkara-perkara yang perlu diperhatikan ialah strategi :
  1. adakah ianya melibatkan jaringan B2C (perniagaan ke pengguna) atau B2B (perniagaan ke perniagaan)?
  2. Adakah ianya memerlukan pasukan jualan yang besar?
  3. Adakah pemasaran ke pengguna memerlukan pelaburan yang tinggi?
  4. Adakah pemasaran menggunakan enjin carian di talian, e-mel atau melibatkan diri dalam pameran perniagaan?
  5. Adakah perniagaan itu memerlukan media sosial seperti laman web (3D? html? Multimedia?) termasuk elemen video atau lain-lain audio visual dsb)
  6. Bagaimanakah keupayaan bahan-bahan promosi di talian untuk menjadi ‘viral’
Biasanya konsep jualan secara ‘perniagaan ke perniagaan’ adalah lebih murah untuk dilancarkan berbanding dengan konsep pemasaran ‘perniagaan ke pengguna’. Namun B2B biasanya sukar mendapat perhatian pelabur kerana ianya mempunyai kitaran jualan yang lebih lama (dan banyak modal diperlukan). Namun ini tidak bermakna B2B tidak mampu bertahan, cuma ianya memerlukan modal terutamanya di pihak pembentang pelan perniagaan. (perniagaan yang telah berjaya tetapi memerlukan modal yang lebih untuk membesarkan lagi perniagaan berkenaan)

Tetapi ‘perniagaan ke pengguna’ jika diatur strategi yang betul, maka jualan di talian berpotensi untuk mendapatkan keuntungan yang besar. Jika ianya berjaya dalam tempoh beberapa tahun (dari segi keuntungan dan penjenamaan) mungkin periklanan dan promosi dapat dikembangkan lagi ke radio, television mahupun bahan bercetak.

Apapun, pastikan pelaburan ke atas pemasaran dan jualan adalah munasabah bagi mencapai skel pulangan yang disasarkan. Paling penting, anda dapat ‘membaca fikiran’ pelabur mengenai apa yang sebenarnya mereka mahu dari anda.

Akhir sekali - yang keempat - Pasukan Pengurusan

Ini juga penting – siapakah ahli-ahli atau kakitangan-kakitangan yang akan menguruskan perniagaan berkenaan. Yang penting adalah pengalaman mereka dan bukti bahawa mereka mahir mengurus dan mentadbir perniagaan mahupun teknikal yang dicadangkan. Perkara ini kadangkala dipandang remeh oleh pembentang kerana terlalu ingin berjimat kos daripada memikirkan pelaburan di atas pekerja atau kakitangan yang kompetan.

WHAT KIND OF WORLD WE'RE LIVING IN? (NIK ZAFRI)

Originally written on 8 May 2010 at 22:07



We are now living in the world full of uncertainty. With the fast pace of globalization, we too are trapped within the dimension of the unknown and unprecedented.

The word 'Power' now is in the game.

Power has always been linked to two things and two things only - good and evil - mostly evil for those who choose to abuse it. Innocent human beings; without realizing what is happening; continue to live in oblivion (mind you...not the video-game) because of the continuous misappropriation of power occurring everywhere around the globe. (I wonder if the Illuminati mind control using 'invisible technology' is true after all)

The chain effect becomes faster and greater when you; readers; and I; writer says that :

"Aaaah..that's life, so what? Just shut-up and move along - as long as we don't disturb one another, we'll be fine".

Ironically this is still too far from the truth and the reality. Look around you!!

Whenever we say these words, we tend to be lead astray with such rethorical and nonsensical philosophy. When?

When our own planet being colonized, our resources, our lands, our houses, our money etc by unscrupulous illogical human beings who thinks that possessing such 'Power' and 'Influence' will be eternal. And what do they say to you?

"This is Progress...this is Development.... Learn to live with it" and by a blink of an eye,your backyard becomes a development project. If you're lucky enough, you will be given some money and you're gone - shifting from one place to another.

Behind you, the actual words would be :

"You're backwards, you're uneducated, you're dumb, you're anti-progress etc"

My replies would be :

Yes, I'm 'anti-progress' because I'm against people who cut down shady trees or destroy greeneries (for no obvious good reason)

Yes, I'm 'uneducated' because I say : "wow...is this global warming..so burning hot!!
....while walking from my house to the stall just 700m away (been doing this for the last 9 years - for health purposes) - perspiring heavily and rapidly dehydrated - not even a single car wish to stop and give a ride - such jerks!! (those days it was not this HOT)

And Yes, I'm 'dumb' for not following the current destructive trends

Am I the only one who's reacting unexpectedly to the climate changes?

Does climate-shift has something to do with my erratic behaviours?

As I see the progress in the human chronicles - I see :

a) wireless technology evolutionizing itself - WAP, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G etc, PAN, Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, Broadband, X-Max etc.

But I also see some human beings using 'sophisticated gadgets' are smiling ironically when they see others using a normal conventional mobile phone and in their hearts "Man..you're no where to me"

b) people working and walking in KL, New York, London and other big cities – not having much time to talk to one another - perhaps they are too busy.

But I also see people who are working/walking rarely care for others - say...when they witness accidents happening right in front of their eyes or pickpockets forcibly steal other people's property or hearing arguments which may end or proven fatal,

And I also witnessed people who are too busy rarely looking at elements of poverty amidst the city hustles. They don't care as long as they are OK with money - pay their taxes, zakats/fitrahs etc. then there is no time to have mercy on others.

Ultimately, I now see elements of the dark sides forming - betrayals, ruined marriages, self-centred attitudes, ruined families, liars, swindlers, cheaters, robbers, thieves, gangsters, racists, extremists etc.

So, this is what we have become – more complex under the pretext of “the new way of life” ? or "This is trendy"??

Well..to add up - we see diabetes, hypertension, cardiac arrests, aches here and there etc.

1) So, what modern economics say about equal distribution of wealth are simply lip service?

2) People are telling me about renewable energies – has it been equally distributed?

3) Sustainable Development - is there such a word?

4) How about politics nowadays? Where is it heading?

5) I wonder; in the near future; will I still see tranquility in flora and fauna, beautiful sandy beaches, orchards etc.

6) Will the earth be healed of so much wounds caused by homosapiens?

7) Why are the teenagers today have their own styles, their own terminologies etc.?

8) Will I be left behind and be accused of 'lack of progress' or 'not following the current trend?'

9) Where did innocent little children learn how to swear, curse etc. (wanna prove me wrong? wanna bet? Just visit any cybercafe and look at the kids (as young as 7 years old - I wonder where are their parents?) who are playing games..what do they say when they loose?)

10) Some people fantasizing and delusioning that "he/she is the MOST popular person in the world" or "he/she is the SAVIOR", "he/she is the fairest, most handsome of all", "he/she is the richest of all", "he/she is the most glamorous of all"...gosh.... :-)

11) People who claim that they're so educated and advanced thinking YET fall for online scams, get rich quick scheme, money laundering, pyramid scheme, urban-legends etc. Worse...some bogus doctors, shamans, bomohs/dukuns etc.

12) People who are not thankful for what or who they are - naturally. One who sees, ignores, hates and overlooks the local culture and tried to blend with 'other people's culture' and dare to claim that this 'new culture' are theirs since they were born...this is the BIGGEST JERK OF ALL!

What would be the solutions? Have you got the answer?

ADAKAH KITA DARI KETURUNAN YANG BAIK? CATATAN DIARI USANG : NIK ZAFRI

Tulisan asal : 30 Ogos 2010 jam 10.52 malam

Berikut adalah sebahagian pesanan seorang musafir pada suatu malam, yang pernah saya tolong/memberikan bantuan kepadanya pada tahun 1993 di Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Orang ini mendakwa saya adalah seorang keturunan yang baik namun tidaklah saya fikirkan sangat mengenai perkara ini, maka manfaatkanlah sekadar mampu pesanannya itu. (saya pernah cuba mencari kembali musafir ini tetapi dari apa yang saya diberitahu, beliau telah kembali ke rahmatullah)

Saya memohon izin untuk menulis setiap pesanannya  dan saya ingin kongsikan bersama  :

1) mempunyai atau memberikan nama atau gelaran yang baik kerana nama/gelaran itu adalah doa (katakanlah nama kita maksudnya kurang baik, maka letakkanlah gelaran yang baik sebagai gantinya)

2) melaksanakan dan menjaga hukum agama dengan penuh keazaman dan istiqamah,

3) sentiasa berdamping dengan ulama supaya tidak menyimpang dari ajaran agama,

4) menjaga dan menghormati ulama,

5) menjaga aqidah, syariah serta tinggi budipekerti dan akhlak,

6) berfikiran luas,

7) bersifat adil dalam menjalankan hukuman atau membuat sesuatu keputusan,

8) Apabila menyudahkan setiap kerja yang dilakukan, lihatlah hasilnya dan meningkatkan lagi mutunya di mana perlu, (tidak mudah berpuas hati dengan apa yang dilakukan)

10) sifat simpati kepada orang yang susah,

11) menegur atau memarahi atau menghukum (atas kebenaran) hanya setelah pasti perbuatan yang dilihat adalah salah dan terbukti

12) berusaha/berazam menjauhi kemungkaran dan sentiasa menggunakan akal bagi membungkam nafsu-nafsi yang merosakkan,

13) lidah yang fasih dalam berkata-kata supaya terang dan jelas maksud kata-katanya

14) tegas dalam mengingatkan sesuatu yang baik kepada seseorang,

15) tidak terlibat dalam perkara/majlis yang tidak berfaedah

16) memastikan majlis berfaedah yang dihadirinya atau dibuat olehnya dipastikan ada orang-orang yang mendoakan agar diberkati majlis berkenaan

17) tidak menzalimi manusia lain,

18) mempastikan kesejahteraan, kemakmuran, keamanan dan kemajuan persekitarannya terutamanya ahli keluarga, sanak saudara, rakan-rakan, anak-anak buah (termasuk kakitangan/pekerja kita) dan lain-lain,

19) tidak merampas harta dan hakmilik orang lain,

20) tidak terlalu mengikut suruhan nafsu termasuk makan-minum, tidur dll,

21) menjaga pandangannya,

22) ketawa tidaklah keterlaluan – sekadar lebih banyak senyum,

23) sentiasa bermuhasabah diri,

24) sentiasa berzakat, bersedekah dan menderma (bersifat pemurah) – jika atau sekadar mampu

25) apabila bersedekah atau memberikan hadiah atau menghulurkan bantuan, jagalah maruah si penerima supaya dia tidak aib di hadapan orang lain kerana terpaksa memohon bantuan,

26) bertabiatlah dengan suka menyembunyikan bantuan supaya hanya diketahui oleh Allah SWT,

27) jika berjanji, tunaikanlah, jangan tangguh-tangguhkan kerana orang yang kita berjanji, menanti-nanti akan janji kita, jika kita takut putus janji, sebutlah InsyaAllah di penghujung perkataan, "Saya akan cuba sedaya upaya" . Jika orang yang kita berjanji masih menanti dan janji kita masih tidak dapat penuhi, hubungilah dia.

28) tidak menakutkan kaum keluarga, sanak saudara, rakan-rakan, anak-anak buah dll dengan ugutan dan ancaman,

29) tidak meletakkan hukuman atau balasan ke atas perbuatan yang salah secara berlebih-lebihan,

30) syaitan dan seumpamanya adalah musuh yang nyata pada diri,

31) memastikan dijaga maruah diri, kaum keluarga, sanak saudara, rakan-rakan, anak-anak buah dll,

32) tidak mengeluh atau bersedih dalam tempoh yang panjang jika kehilangan apa-apa yang disayangi sebaliknya redha dan bertaubat,

33) menggalakkan  kaum keluarga, sanak saudara, rakan-rakan, anak-anak buah dll supaya menuntut ilmu dan sekiranya ilmu yang dituntut sudah tiba masanya untuk disebarkan – menyuruh ianya disebarkan supaya orang lain dapat memanfaatkannya,

34) apabila membeli apa-apa harta, jangan tunjuk-tunjukkan terutamanya di kalangan  kaum keluarga, sanak saudara, rakan-rakan, anak-anak buah dll, yang mungkin terasa hina kerana ketiadaan dan kedhaifan.

35) Sebelum membuat keputusan yang penting, merujuklah dahulu kepada pakar atau ahli dalam bab berkenaan tidak kira hal-hal dunia atau akhirat,

36) apabila berurusan, kenali manusia-manusia persekitarannya yang mungkin mempunyai kepentingan diri yang melebihi kepentingan orang lain supaya tidak berlaku apa-apa pengkhianatan, berilah pesan dan kata-kata nasihat.

38) Semasa dhaif - kita berdoa agar dianugerahkan rezeki atau pangkat oleh Allah SWT - semasa mewah atau berpangkat, janganlah lupa diri kita dan sentiasalah mengenang semasa kita susah dahulu, ingatlah hanya manusia yang biasa susah, akan mengenali orang yang susah.

"Orang yang susah ni Nik, dia tidak akan berani menyatakan kepada kita dia lapar, kitalah yang kena memahaminya"

39) Jika memberi hadiah atau berbuat jasa, kawallah diri supaya tidak mengungkit-ungkit pemberian atau jasa yang dilakukan itu,

40) Berhutang hanya ketika perlu, lunaskan hutang dan jangan lari dari hutang, maklumkanlah kepada pemiutang jika kita belum mampu membayarnya,

41) Memaafkan dan redha atas kesilapan dan kesalahan orang lain lebih baik dari tidak memaafkan atau tidak redha kerana sifat memaaf dan redha adalah sifat Nabi.

Apabila saya memerhatikan kembali nota ini, saya teringat persamaan pesanannnya dalam salah sebuah kitab ulama terkenal nusantara, rasanya baguslah kalau kita dapat menjadikannya tonggak hidup kita sekadar yang mampu.

Wassalam dan Wallahualam
