A fantastic 121 companies signed up to our AS9100 webinars to hear the expert advice of David, James and Andy — with over 50% attending all five webinars. They are now fully prepared to take full advantage of the transition to AS9100 Rev D.
Of the attendees, 13 organisations are accelerating change by adopting our Isoma Suite as their central BMS, and a further 44 are in the process of establishing a budget.
Thank you to everyone who joined in. For those of you who did not manage to watch all 5 of our informative webinars and would like to view recordings of the webinars visit our resources page here.
"Informative, engaging and helpful. Got the board to watch these webinars — plan agreed, resources allocated, budget approved. Thank you."
We ran these webinars to provide personal advice on AS9100 Rev D and really find out how Quality Managers felt about the change — both their hopes and fears. Over the course of five months our Q&A’s brought up some recurring themes:
Underestimating the Scale
From timescales — with 18 months to go, and an average implementation time of 21 months — to the cost and scale of the AS9100 change, many Quality Managers felt they had not previously realised the fundamental changes and challenges that Rev D will bring.
Top 5 things people underestimated: 1: Timeframe. 2: The concept and introduction of the Value Chain. 3: The emphasis on Change Management. 4: The opportunity in AS9100. 5: The need to engage people in the company.
Engaging the Board
A large chunk of feedback indicated Quality Managers feel conversations between them and the Board sometimes seem like an alien dialogue, and they are looking for advice on how to approach and engage the Board behind AS9100. We plan to shortly release more tips and techniques on this topic.
Stuck in the mud: 47% of attendees describe their corporate culture as 'stuck in the mud' and 31% felt their organisation would resist change.
