Mike Wakshull - Implementation of QMS for a Forensics Laboratory: Loyalty to the Evidence
This presentation explores the application of ISO 9000:2015 and ISO 9001:2015 to implementation of a quality management system (QMS) to a small forensics laboratory. A QMS is focused on delivering the best product to the customer and focuses on continuous improvement of the process. From a PMBoK perspective, this falls within the Qaulity Management knowledge area.
The work of the forensic examiner requires development and execution of a risk-based process approach. The forensic examiner’s loyalty is to the evidence rather that to the person or entity that retains them. The quality principals defined in ISO 9000:2015 must be focused on both the retaining entity and the evidence.
Mike Wakshull is a full-time forensic document examiner based in Temecula. He is a certified PMP and Quality Engineer (CQE). Past positions were senior project manager and principal quality engineer at Amgen where he managed corporate quality risk management. At Abbott Vascular he led development and implementation of quality risk management procedures. Mike applies his project management and quality management experience and skills to the practice of forensic document examination.
Mike was a contributing author to the risk management chapter of the PMBoK Guide.
