    Many ISO management systems have been built around the
    concept of planning for and responding to risks. The new ISO Quality Management System
    (9001:2015) standard will elevate the idea of risk management to a higher
    priority through examining both “threats” and “opportunities” inherent in the system
    being managed. Quality management has
    been a customer focused standard built on the idea of continual improvement of
    the processes and culture that comprise the definitive aspects of the
    enterprise. Top management is
    responsible for managing the system and making decisions based on identifiable
    threats and opportunities. This requires
    an understanding of current processes and system dynamics as well as evaluating
    what course of actions are needed to navigate toward business uncertainties –
    risks.
