Quality for Founders
People, Process, Product
Whether you’re just starting a new company or in your early years, founders need to understand the Quality of their operations and products.
Developing a business-centric Quality Management System (QMS) involving all the aspects of an organization can make the difference between success and failure. Quality plays a huge role, especially for those requiring FDA approval or ISO certification. Most company founders do not know their exact position in the regulatory pathway, and the need to build a strong quality culture begins very early. Missing quality processes along the way can mean long delays in FDA approval, especially since companies will be required to go back and update their quality systems. Delays mean a loss of money and could mean the loss of being first to market. This course is for founders. It provides an overview of quality systems and the what and why you, as a founder, need to understand your responsibility regarding the QMS pathway.
