The management of risks, i.e. the systematic identification of risks and the planning of suitable measures for dealing with risks, has so far played (hardly) any role in the world of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. Even in IATF 16949 for the automotive industry, this is only a marginal topic. With the 2015 standard revisions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and now in IATF 16949, this highly important topic is finally being integrated into the quality management system or integrated management systems. The basic idea here is that every process carried out in a company can deliver both unplanned negative and positive results, the so-called risks, but also opportunities.

These risks and opportunities can have very different causes, effects and probabilities, and as a result very different measures may be required. Such risks and opportunities may relate to the business situation, customers, the legal environment, failure of suppliers, product failures, failures in the production process, failure of key components or personnel, failures in the testing process, etc. Requirement of the revised ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and IATF 16949 standards (other management system standards will follow) is to identify and manage the risks and opportunities for each process. This is a new requirement that must be implemented if the standard is to be met. The intention of the standard revisions is that risk management is not defined as a separate process, but is made part of the process management, for each process the risks and opportunities should be managed.

Participants will get an overview of the topic of risk management in processes, its importance and the goals and methods to introduce and design an effective management of processes regarding their risks and opportunities in the company. They will learn the relevant requirements from the revised standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and IATF 16949 with regard to risk management, as well as other approaches to process management. In addition, advice is given on the appropriate implementation of risk management in the company.
