The purpose of a gap analysis is to:
The gap analysis will likely be your first audit.
A gap analysis will compare your current systems with the requirements of the standard. Where there is a shortfall, it is called a "gap". This will show the processes:
Not only will a gap analysis template help you to identify the gaps, it will also allow you to recommend how those gaps should be filled to Top Management and give them a steer as to the scope of effort and resources needed to gain certification.
Armed with this knowledge, it allows you to establish accurate budgets, resources, timelines and expectations which are proportional to the state of your current management system when directly compared to the requirements of the new standard.
The gap analysis output also provides a valuable baseline for the implementation process as a whole and for measuring progress.
After performing the Gap Analysis you will have a list of activities and processes that comply and ones that do not comply. The latter list now becomes the target of your implementation plan.
Written by quality management experts, proven to work, our gap analysis checklists are available to buy individually or as part of a complete ISO Template.
