Key benefits of customer focus
Customer focus involves determining customer requirements and ensuring that processes exist to meet the requirements and achieve customer satisfaction. Enhance customer satisfaction by ensuring that customer requirements are identified.
The principal message that Top management must convey is that the objective of the business is to satisfy your customers by ensuring a process exists to achieve the following:
- Identifying customer requirements;
- Meeting customer requirements;
- Enhancing customer satisfaction.
When auditing customer focus, the audit team should assess whether customer satisfaction is adequately determined and appropriate corrective action undertaken when things go wrong.
The customer feedback process should be audited as a process in its own right and not just as a clause in the standard. Determine how this process is planned, implemented and improved as these factors will affect the processes’ ability to provide meaningful information about the effectiveness of the QMS.
