ISO 9001 hasn't changed much in the last 15 years... until now! ISO 9001:2015 is a MAJOR revision. A LOT has changed. Requirements have been added and removed. Content has shifted to different sections and clauses. ISO 9001:2015 is built upon a completely different structure with the adoption of Annex SL. This may seem like a lot to take in, and it is. Fortunately, bestselling author Craig Cochran has translated ISO 9001:2015 into plain English that anyone can understand. Just as he did with the bestselling ISO 9001 in Plain English Cochran has written a comprehensive yet easily understandable guide to ISO 9001:2015. ISO 9001:2015 in Plain English was written so that anyone at any level of the organization can get to the heart of the standard’s requirements and how they apply to the organization quickly and simply. Plus, Cochran shows what has changed between the 2008 and 2015 version. This straightforward book is ideal for people who are new to ISO 9001:2015, experienced ISO coordinators who want to get more out of an established system as they transition to the new standard, and for employees who just need a basic understanding of what ISO 9001:2015 is and how it applies to them. Cochran explains each of ISO 9001:2015’s sections and clauses using real-world examples and frequently asked questions.

The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 has been modernized to update terminology and content to meet current and anticipated user needs.

Where appropriate, it includes an elaboration of why the requirements are important. It also includes typical audit-type questions that an organization may consider to assess conformity to internal needs and ISO 9001 requirements. Recommendations for implementation are also included. This book addresses the needs of: Users and organizations seeking a general understanding of the contents of ISO 9001:2015 Users and organizations desiring guidance to ensure their ISO 9001:2015 QMS meets the new version requirements Users and organizations considering the use of ISO 9001:2015 as a foundation for the development of a comprehensive QMS Educators who require a textbook to accompany a training class or course on ISO 9001:2015 Auditors who desire to increase their level of auditing competence Authors Cianfrani and West, members of the expert group that developed ISO 9001:2015, strive to provide a context for all requirements to enable you to develop and deploy processes that will strengthen your QMS.

Implementing the requirements of ISO 9001 can be a daunting task for many organizations. In an attempt to develop a system that will pass the registration audit, we are tempted to establish processes with the primary purpose of conforming to the requirements of ISO 9001. In doing so, however, it is easy to lose sight of the primary intent of the standard: to continually improve the effectiveness of the quality management system (QMS) implemented at our organization. This book is intended to help managers, quality professionals, internal audit coordinators, and internal auditors implement a practical internal audit process that meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 while adding significant, measurable value to the organization. The tools, techniques, and step-by-step guidelines provided in this book can also be used by those organizations that have a well-established internal audit process but are looking for easy ways to make that process more effective. The tools in the appendices of this book have also been provided on the enclosed CD to facilitate your customizing them to fit the specific needs of your organization.

Research scientists play a pivotal role in society. Their passion for science will drive them forward, leading to new discoveries that will ultimately make the world a better place. Unfortunately, as the professional environment becomes more and more competitive, research scientists today cannot just rely on technical knowledge to carve successful careers. Besides technical skills, they will need to acquire other skills, such as how to communicate their science to the outside world. A Survival Guide for Research Scientists is a one-stop-shop that will help you to develop those core skills not often taught at school or university. The book has been written by an author with more than 20 years of scientific research experience (across different scientific disciplines). She has not only been a research scientist but also a writer, a consultant, a sole-trader and a project manager. A Survival Guide for Research Scientists takes on a holistic approach in order to help you pave the way for success. As such, it features practical guidelines on how to: • conduct your scientific research (how to: do literature review, design experiments, adopt best practice, ensure health and safety, etc.). • write and edit (reports, bid proposals, peer review publications, etc). • interact with the outside world (be a team leader, manage a project, network, deal with difficult people, do presentations, organise meetings, etc.). • look after your career (and get your dream job). • look after yourself (and how to manage stress). • look for a job (develop your CV, prepare for interviews, etc.). • become self-employed (and achieve business success). • deal with redundancy (and move forward in life, etc) Whatever your scientific background may be, this book is the perfect accompaniment, to guide you at every stage of your career.
