To succeed in a highly competitive market, you need to be forward-looking, adaptive, creative and willing to learn from your mistakes. Because mistakes, sub-optimizations or oversights are almost impossible to avoid when delivering complex products or services.
An audit is not about apportioning blame or singling out individual employees. On the contrary. It is about identifying requirements that are not being met, what in the individual processes or procedures is causing the shortcomings and where there is the greatest potential for improvement. For example, if the management system is certified to a standard such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 or ISO 50001, the certification body will expect clear planning of the audits and comprehensive reporting with proposed actions.
Corrective and preventive proposals are assessed, implemented and followed up in a structured way and resource persons are engaged and kept informed. A well-functioning management system such as CANEA ONE is a great help.
It is often difficult to get audit activities accepted and integrated as a natural improvement tool. It often becomes a separate workshop where different types of audits are handled in different "islands", which becomes cumbersome, time-consuming and difficult to manage.
This in turn makes it difficult to get both an overall picture of the business and a deeper understanding of the state of affairs. The audit becomes more of a fire-fighting exercise for the moment and less of an implementation of long-term corrective or improvement actions. And monitoring of results is often forgotten.
CANEA ONE is an important tool in daily operations, including work with controls, audits and work with deviations.
