6 reasons Rob Kantner is your smart choice for ISO consultant.

Rob Kantner - ISO expert

1. Rob Kantner: nearly 25 years of helping hundreds of organizations of all kinds meet their ISO challenges.

The ISO 9000 standard was first published in 1987, the year I first started working with ISO. Since then, and especially since going independent with my own firm in 1995, I have provided implementation, education, and audit services for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, and others, to hundreds of clients in manufacturing and service fields all over North America. And from every one of them, I've learned.

2. Rob Kantner: Expert at making ISO work for you (not other way around).

Because you're doing this, you must be a great company. Great firms get great because they have effective processes. These effective processes, I believe, do not need to be changed to "fit ISO." Rather, I help you build your ISO system around those great processes to help make them better. The only process changes I'll propose are those needed to ensure full compliance with the Standard, and in this my job is to offer an array of options. For the consultant, this strategy is not easy. It requires thought, care, creativity, and (most of all) decades of hands-on experience. That's what you get when you sign up with me.

3. Rob Kantner: Skilled at fully engaging your work force in the ISO process.

Of the three main phases of an ISO project, documentation is the easiest. Compliance is a bit harder. And implementation–getting the work force fully knowledgeable and engaged–is by far the toughest. But full implementation is what drives your ISO system beyond "passing audits" to paying dividends. With my expert guidance, your work force becomes fully educated, engaged, and actively using the ISO system as a tool for improvement.

4. Rob Kantner: Helps you dodge the big ISO pitfalls–pointless bureaucracy and needless paperwork.

An ISO system becomes a paperwork monstrosity when the people setting it up don't know any better. That's not their fault; they lack my years of experience. I understand the requirements and the principles, and know how to translate them to your day to day reality. Most important, at each step I'll apply a vigilant and critical eye. I'll challenge client people and myself to make each step of the ISO process add value. I'll watch warily for paperwork creep–and when in doubt, I'll throw it out!

5. Rob Kantner: Flexible help to fit your unique situation.

Some clients need full in-person service. Others can do the job with remote guidance from me. I strive to understand exactly what you need, and tailor my plan (and its costs and timelines) to fit your particular circumstances.

6. Rob Kantner: assuring an excellent outcome.

This means fully preparing your team, including top management, for successful registration audit. More important, it's ensuring that your ISO system is free of ISO-speak, and fits your firm and its processes like a glove–a system your team fully understands, owns, and can operate into the future, with no further consulting help needed. For me, then, a big measure of success is to work myself out of a job!
