Customer research and ISO 9000:2008
ISO 9000 is a family of standards and guidelines primarily concerned with quality management. The standardized definition of "quality" in ISO 9000 refers to all those features of a product (or service) that are required by the customer. "Quality management" means what the organization does to ensure that its products conform to the customer's requirements.

ISO 9001:2008 replaces ISO 9001:2000, the standard that most companies have used for certification. TL 9000 (the telecom industry version of ISO 9000) is aligned with the ISO 9001:2008 requirements.

ISO 9001:2008 includes requirements to understand current and future customer needs, to meet customer requirements, and to strive to exceed customer expectations. Plus organizations are expected to take corrective actions based on factual customer benchmark findings.

ISO 9001:2008 remains customer focused like the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

Six 9s works collaboratively with clients to design customer research programs to help them meet these evolving industry imperatives.
