014B - "The Second P: Process" with Larry Mager
In Part 2 of this episode, Larry and I discuss the Second P: Process. I start the episode by asking Larry to explain the difference between a Quality System and a Quality Management System(QMS) to set the foundation. Larry then moves on to explain have a control environment should be well established(policies, standards, procedures, governance, etc), Risk Management for processes and poking holes in your organization's ways of working, control activities, flow of information, monitoring, management review and continuous improvement.
