Your first step to compliance
Teamwork’s ISO 9001 Gap Analysis service utilises pragmatic, business-focused methods. Our consultants help clients, partners, and stakeholders benchmark their systems against best practices, a vital step toward ISO 9001 certification. Our approach involves interviews with key personnel to assess your current compliance with the required standards.
Why is Gap Analysis important?
A gap analysis is a key stepping stone in achieving ISO 9001 certification. Following Gap Analysis, we generate a detailed and comprehensive report for your senior management team. This report succinctly highlights your areas of compliance with ISO 9001 requirements and more importantly, identifies the gaps. We accompany this with actionable recommendations and a realistic timeline for achieving ISO 9001 UKAS accredited certification.
Teamwork's Gap Analysis Process
We compare your current processes against quality management best practices.
We will conduct a review of your quality documentation, establishing alignment with current practices.
We create a detailed report, presentation and plan with actions, ownership, and timelines.
Utilising your action plan, we can either provide consultancy support through to certification or you can implement independently.
How we work
Teamwork’s high-level ISO 9001 Gap Analysis compares existing core processes, practices and documentation with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard, and other ISO standards if applicable. It identifies where the organisation meets the requirements of ISO 9001 and where there are gaps.
During the ISO 9001 Gap Analysis, a high-level review of your existing quality management documentation is carried out to establish whether or not it is appropriate and reflects current practice. Any changes required to support improvements in line with best practices and the requirements of ISO 9001 are identified.
Once we have completed the ISO 9001 Gap Analysis we prepare a detailed report and present the results to your project team. The report will clearly identify where you are meeting the requirements. It will also pinpoint gaps, with the actions you need to take to fill them and a realistic timescale in which ISO 9001 certification can be achieved.
Teamwork will work with you to prepare a comprehensive project plan covering the subsequent stages of the ISO 9001 implementation programme. This will include details of project actions, ownership and timescales, and will form part of a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP). This would be maintained up to and beyond ISO 9001 assessment and would be continually updated and developed as a business management tool.
