Hi Everyone, I have been watching this forum for the past couple of months and have learned a great deal! so thank you. This is my first post. I am currently in my 4th month as a quality manager (among other things, as most of you know) at a company. I am replacing someone who is retiring, and has no interest really in learning about the new standard. I will also state that I am in my 2nd year as a quality manager, so I'm still learning A LOT! My previous workplace was very quality oriented, with the focus really being on our QMS, and utilizing it. This place.... not so much. I feel that they really have it as a formality, and top management really has not gotten involved. As you all know, top management involvement is a big aspect for the new standard and was wondering if anyone has experience, trying to get people on board, or training them. I feel that most people at this company think it is a mystery as to what I do (including my boss... *Eyeroll*) I am having our first quality board meeting (their word for management review, because they really don't do those... its pathetic, I know) of the year next Friday, and I am working on the presentation. For part of it I really want talk about the updating that I've been starting and explain to them what I am going to need from them. But I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas, or if anyone has had to do this too? Thanks!
