If you compare the principles that guide both ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards and TPS (Toyota Production System/Lean Manufacturing) you will find that they either overlap or complement each other. Many organizations treat these as separate entities of their business rather than allowing them to integrate and support one another. We take a unique approach by incorporating Lean thinking when creating, implementing, and sustaining your quality management system (QMS). All of our ISO consulting and auditing services can be provided on-site, remotely, or a combination of both.
We currently provide auditing and consulting services for the following ISO standards:
Whether you are wanting to get ISO certified or just looking to improve your QMS, Lean Partners can help. Many organizations will create processes to meet an ISO requirement without consideration for the efficiency and effectiveness of that process which ultimately results in waste. At Lean Partners, we customize solutions that will improve your business, meet ISO requirements, and fully integrate with your existing business management system. We take a systematic project-based approach to remediating your QMS within your timeline.

Outsourcing your internal or supplier audit programs to Lean Partners will free up internal resources as well as ensure your auditors are experienced, qualified, and unbiased. Our audit objectives are to not only verify requirements are being met but to also identify opportunities for improvement. We can support any of your auditing needs from developing and maintaining your entire audit program to simply conducting the audit and providing a final report.

NOTE: We believe in the accreditation process of both certification bodies (registrars) and auditors. This is why we use Exemplar Global certified QMS auditors and will not combine ISO consulting or auditing with certification services (An IAF requirement for accreditation). However, if you need assistance in selecting a certification body, Lean Partners can guide you through identifying and interviewing accredited certification bodies to find one that best fits your business.
