David Hoyle as a manager, consultant, author and mentor has been helping individuals and organizations across the world understand and apply ISO 9001 effectively since its inception in 1987. He has held senior positions in quality management with British Aerospace and Ferranti International and worked with such companies as General Motors, the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Bell Atlantic on their quality improvement programmes. Although neither a member of ISO nor BSI technical committees, he has been a member of the CQI for over 40 years and through his work with them built a network of like-minded professionals including members of ISO and BSI technical committees, which gave him privileged access to many reports, presentations and early drafts and thus gained an insight into the thinking behind ISO 9001:2015.
David Hoyle's latest work on this ISO 9000 Handbook once again "cracks the code", encrypted by the ISO TC 176 authors and offers, actionable, pragmatic advice for users and quality practitioners around the World on how to understand and effect the ISO 9000 family of documents. With so many competing publications on the subject, this 7th edition should be the essential, go-to handbook for quality professionals seeking to understand and benefit from an ISO 9001 modeled quality system.

The book does a great job of showing how a quality
system built to the principles of ISO 9000 and conforming to the
new ISO 9001:2015 requirements can be an integral part of
leadership's strategic approach to running the business versus
letting a quality management system operate in a silo.
The book explores and explains the ISO9001:2015 requirements in a way that is easy to follow yet at the same time deep and meaningful especially for those new concepts and requirements such as leadership, context of the organization and managing risk. This feels like a book I'll keep referring to for many years to come.
