Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 946 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Software QMS improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 946 standard requirements:
- Is the quality assurance function recognized to be different from implicit and continuous quality control during fabrication, in that it is discrete, explicit following production, and ignores the sequence or nature of the fabrication steps or processes?
- DevOps is fundamentally about culture and about the quality of your application. And by quality the specific software engineering term of quality is meant, of different quality attributes. What matters to you?
- Do you measure the responsiveness and quality provided to your stakeholders. Have commitments been met, software deployed, response times honored, processes documented, training completed?
- How will your investment in a software assessment process, as part of a process improvement program, help you improve your abilities as a manager to reach the goals of your organization?
- How are you ensuring that the quality policy and quality objectives are established for the QMS and are compatible with the strategic direction and the context of your organization?
- Do you have a system for obtaining your customers review and disposition of all nonconforming materials that cannot be reworked to customer requirements or are deemed obvious scrap?
- Are there some requirements for quality that are structured as part of general releasability of an application and others that are as needed or custom for a particular release?
- Auditors should look at corresponding requirements in light of your organizations QMS scope -how will corresponding requirements impact the QMS ability to fulfill this scope?
- Is documented information (required by the QMS and ISO 9001) controlled to ensure it is adequately protected from loss of confidentiality, improper use, or loss of integrity?
- Your organization cannot make every member of every architecture, development, quality assurance, and operations team a security expert, so how can security be improved?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process.

Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Software QMS investments work better.
This Software QMS All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
