In the highly regulated medical device industry, management responsibility and management review are critical concepts in ensuring a suitable Quality Management System (QMS).

It is critical that management establishes a quality policy, quality objectives, and provides adequate resources. However, management often fails to realize the importance of their role with respect to quality. In this course, we’ll discuss how to improve awareness, focus, and a culture of quality.

Management Review is the key mechanism to keep management informed on the continuing suitability and effectiveness of the Quality Management System. This webinar will cover how to keep management aware and informed. The webinar will also identify "red flags" or warning signs of problems.

Why should you Attend: Management with executive responsibility is responsible for establishing a quality policy and objectives and for demonstrating a commitment to quality.

And management at all levels should be aware of and engaged in quality efforts and customer focus. Yet, they are frequently unaware of their responsibilities, leading to compliance issues, quality problems, and customer dissatisfaction.

Management is unaware of gaps in the quality system and the risk that poses for the company. Even worse, management is blind to the impact on product quality and risk to the customer. This webinar will highlight red-flags and ways to ensure your management understands their responsibilities, in well informed on the health of the QMS, and provides the right level of oversight, attention, and resources.
