Certification and maintenance of ISO-based management systems (i.e. ISO 9001, 14001, etc.) is often a requirement for doing business with certain customers and sectors. While many organizations struggle to find value with respective their certification efforts, those that use international standards in conjunction with improvement tools such as Six Sigma and APQP wonder how they could have ran a business without a formal management system. Each organization must use the requirements and guidelines of various tools and methods that are most suitable to their own unique vision.
