About this book

This is the book you’ve been waiting for!
Written from a quality management professional’s point of view, it offers useful solutions and practical advice concerning the use of agile practices in ISO 9001-based quality management systems. Agility for organisations is defined and described in a structured way. It is shown in detail how agile practices can be integrated into a QM system while maintaining the ISO 9001 certification. You will find out what needs to be considered when systemically incorporating agile practices, and how to balance the benefits and limitations of agility in organisations.
Based on a qualitative, intersectoral research initiative, this book provides unique, state-of-the-art information and valid arguments for focused organisational development.
