Supplier Management in FDA- and ISO-regulated Industry 2017

Supplier Management in FDA- and ISO-regulated Industry 2017
Event on 2017-09-14 09:00:00
Course "Supplier Management in FDA- and ISO-regulated Industry" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


Supplier qualification and assessment is required in both the QSR regulations and ISO standards. Many companies spend a great deal of time and money in pursuit of compliance. Many companies can spend significantly less time and money, and still be in control of their suppliers and in compliance with the regulations. This class will review the QSR and ISO requirements for supplier evaluation, including defining the types of suppliers that require evaluation. The QSR/ISO requirements for supplier assessment will be defined as well. Attention will be paid to inclusion of risk management in across both supplier qualification and assessment, implementation of which will allow your company to devote value-added resources to these efforts. Significant time will be spent on discussion of the topic of supplier nonconformance, including how and when to issue the dreaded Supplier Corrective Action Request. Your supplier nonconformance handling process must be nonconfrontational, or even better, collaborative. If your company is too demanding of your suppliers, you risk alienating them or even worse losing them – try explaining that to your supply chain folks.

Why should you attend

Notified bodies and the FDA cannot require your suppliers to meet the quality system regulations, so they must make sure you are exercising sufficient control over those suppliers. You must make sure your supplier management and system meets all required regulations and guidance documents, especially for outsourced processes such as contract manufacturing, sterilization and testing, and also for critical suppliers. Sure, you depend on your suppliers to provide you with goods and services, but can your system prove that you have sufficient control over your suppliers to assure auditors and regulatory agencies that your product is safe and meets all your requirements? Your supplier management program can be in compliance, but is it cost effective? If not, your unquantifiable overhead costs may be out of control. Is your supplier management program collaborative with your suppliers? If your company is too demanding of your suppliers, you risk alienating them or even worse losing them – try explaining that to your supply chain folks!

Quality Management System ISO 13485- 2017

Quality Management System ISO 13485- 2017
Event on 2017-08-17 09:00:00
Course "Implementing ISO 13485:2016" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


The final version of ISO 13485:2016 is now available and companies should be planning their implementation. There are significant changes from the earlier version; they will require major modifications to the Quality Management System (QMS). The new version has better alignment with FDA's QSR, but there are still major differences that create issues for effective QMS implementation.
This workshop covers the differences from the 2003 version to the 2016 version and offers practical implementation advice to update your QMS. Participants will also learn the differences with QSR and understand how to resolve them. The workshop uses extensive examples and exercises to help clarify the concerns.
Some regulatory systems will rely on ISO 13485:2016 through the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP). The US will participate in MDSAP, but doesn't expect to change its regulations. The EU is not participating, has published its own version, EN ISO 13485:2016, and will continue with the Notified Body system. However, the EU intends to replace the directives with new regulations resulting in new versions of EN ISO 13485:2016 and EN ISO 14971:2012.
The workshop covers implications in particular regulatory systems including MDASP and its nonconformity grading system.

Why should you attend:

The transition to ISO 13485:2016 can be complicated and, for some companies, the period is short, depending on when the current certificate expires. Start planning and implementing as soon as possible. This workshop provides the knowledge and understanding to update your QMS.

Workshop Objectives:

Participants will learn the major changes in the new version of the standard. In addition, they will understand where the new standard and QSR do not agree. The primary objective is to give participants the understanding needed for an efficient and effective QMS update.

Who Will Benefit:

• Quality managers
• Management Representatives
• Quality engineers
• Quality assurance and quality control
• Regulatory affairs managers

Project Management in Human Resources (COM)

Project Management in Human Resources (COM)
Event on 2017-07-12 08:30:00

Naturally, getting a project to deliver on time, within budget, and in line with quality standards requires savvy management. And, the bigger the project, the more challenging good management becomes. As a professional, you’re expected to transform a vague concept into a measurable outcome by channeling a broad array of knowledge, skills, and resources toward a critical organizational goal.

This three-day workshop is a practical and comprehensive introduction to the many facets of project management specifically designed for the human resource professional. As a participant, you will be introduced to the fundamental principles behind the nuts and bolts of planning, scheduling, and budgeting. You’ll strengthen your skills and understand how to generate valuable benefits for your organization by achieving crucial results that align with organizational objectives. You'll discover the communication skills it takes to get ideas, instructions, and requests across quickly and accurately thereby minimizing development time. You will learn how to effectively use your resources to stay on top of deadlines and expenses, ways to rebound quickly from surprises and setbacks, and how to get the best from people who don't normally report to you. Everyone who attends this workshop will come away in a strong position to lead any project with confidence and discipline — from conception to completion.

Level – This is a fundamental level seminar designed to introduce basic concepts of project management with the tools needed to enhance one’s core competencies as a valuable organizational player.

Learning Objectives:

Learn the imperative questions to ask before you even begin — get the information that will make certain you key in on what is expected, by when, and at what cost

Practice using the planning and scheduling tools that professional project managers use (GANTT charts, the critical path method, work breakdown structures, project management software, and others)

Discover the best practices for gathering your team, how to articulate the kind of skills, attitudes, and work habits you're looking for, and how to encourage your team to focus on your work and even a few ideas for how to deal with their rather reluctant bosses

Implement the controls and safety nets you need to establish early on: learn how to set (and meet) milestones, gain confidence to negotiate for new deadlines if necessary, motivate a team that's losing interest, and determine what to do when plans change midstream — or when the "Murphy factor" hits your project in a big way

Can You Answer the questions below?

As an HR professional, have you ever become so overwhelmed with your “work-a-day” activities that you find yourself losing sight of the long term objectives that matter most to your organization?

Do you find yourself focusing with the proverbial hammer in hand “whacking” a continuous stream of problems?

Do you feel simply disorganized and finding yourself playing the role of “firefighter” rather than HR?

When asked how important legal and regulatory decisions impact your organization, is your first thought, “um, I don’t know”?

Do you know the questions to ask that help you look and sound prepared for anything that comes your way?

All of the above questions and more will be answered in this information-packed program! Don’t put your

Keeping the project spirit alive within your organization by celebrating your success: Rewarding team members does not always mean financial costs. How to acknowledge your project's contribution (to your organization, perhaps even your industry), and create the kind of goodwill that makes people want to be a part of your next project team.

Who will Benefit:
Self-taught project managers seeking enrichment training and new skills
Project teams having trouble juggling their tasks and responsibilities
People with limited experience in spearheading a project
Anyone about to step into a project manager role for the first time
Business Owners
HR Representatives,
HR Generalists,
HR Assistants,
Supervisors, etc.

Topic Background:
Thanks to rapid change and the pressures of intense competition, more and more work has become project work. Changes in technology and in customer preferences have made work less routine and less repeatable – presenting new challenges for departments geared tactically for daily routines while at the same time, competitive pressures have forced work be done more quickly and with fewer resources.

As a Human Resources professional, you wear many hats within your organization. From policy and strategic thought to careful administration of the many programs implemented, one thing is for certain, you do wear these many hats because your primary mandate is to always focus on the big-picture. To be successful, you need to allocate the precious resource of time to effectively negotiate for the allocation of people, processes and technology with few changes and near perfect management. You already know what it means to be a smart risk taker who can “turn-on-a-dime” with meaningful decisions communicated into action. But do you know how to leverage risk so that it can be translated into meaningful, value added action your organization can rely on to move forward?

I'm thrilled to have Debt Management Inc. (DMI) as this month's sponsor. This will be your opportunity to learn how and why their service is superior to that of their competition. With DMI, the check really is in the mail. We have an exciting addition to our event. Ernest Price (, professional photographer and videography will be available to video your 60 second commerical for you to use in social media promotion, website content, however you see fit. (SEO is more and more geared to video, so it is to your advantage to include video as a powerful marketing tool.) I negotiated a special deal with Ernest for this event. The first three people who register for T.E.N. + video will be rewarded with the video for only .00! Don't worry, if you are not one of the first three, I was still able to get you a deal. The special video price for the rest of us is reduced to .00. If you're nervous about being videoed, I can help. I am offering 1 hour of presentation coaching for – a 50% reduction from my usual cost. If you want to take advantage of this, all you need to do is purchase the "T.E.N. + Coaching Package". This includes the ticket as well. After that, send me an email at and we will schedule a time to get together prior to the event. At most networking events you're lucky if you get to talk to 9 or 10 people. Even then, are you delivering your message or just talking about the weather or the latest news headlines? At Total Exposure Networking (TEN), we make sure that you get to delivery your pitch to everyone in the room! Our unique TEN format consists of starting out with food, drink, and general conversation. Then, when everyone is there, we pick 5 people, and they each have one minute to give their pitch to everyone in the room. Now for the good part – we then take 10 minutes to allow anyone to talk with those who just spoke to ask questions, learn more, and make appointments. Then, we pick 5 more and do it again, and again, using the 5/10 format until everyone has had the opportunity to deliver their pitch to everyone in the room! A perfect TEN!  This month's event is at Easy Entertaining on the Rising Sun Mills campus, 166 Valley St., Providence. Kait Roberts of Easy Entertaining has a wonderful cafe tailor made for networking. I can promise you that the food and drink will be spectacular!
