Entry 1: ISO 9001 - Why I Question It's Value

Topic: ISO 9001   

Created on Thu, 16 Feb 2012.

The first line of from wikipedia...

"ISO 9000 is a family of standards related to quality management systems and designed to help organizations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders"

Sound like a great certification, but I'll be a bit skeptical after reading a bit further on wikipedia and seeing

Rank Country No. of certificates
1 China 257,076
2 Italy 130,066
3 Japan 68,484
4 Spain 59,576
5 Russian Federation 53,152
6 Germany 47,156
7 United Kingdom 41,193
8 India 37,493
9 USA 28,935
10 Korea, Republic of 23,400

 

hmmm... China is first? CHINA HAS THE HIGHEST STANDARDS?!!... After going to Shanghai and seeing first hand their 'great' standards, I find it hard to accept that any company with ISO 9001 certification is automatically deemed respectible. From what I saw, companies in China work real hard to have everything on paper, but the enforcement and execution of such quality measures are far from present...

Its like the delinquent student who pulls off all kinds of cleaver jazz to make their homework not look too much like their buddy's... if your gonna work so hard, why not just do it... right?



PLEASE let me know if I'm doing something wrong, or if you have any suggestions or requests~
