Earlier this week we shared the first in a two-part series on practical tips for managing supplier risks in the Life Sciences industry. In the previous post

In today’s post we’ll provide practical tips for setting goals, coaching recommendations, and best practices for supplier performance and risk monitoring.

It is critical today that risk-based thinking be embedded across respective quality and compliance activities throughout the Life Sciences. ISO13485:2016 regulations are driving the industry to this paradigm. I recently explored practical tips for managing life sciences supplier risks together with a team of consultants, including Dr. Carmine Jabri of E.M.M.A. International Consulting Group
, Aida Markham of QACV Consulting
, and Kenneth Christie of VTS Consultants, Inc
. This post is the first in a two-part series that examines our findings, which you also can uncover on-demand here

This industry continues to buzz about ISO 13485:2016. The February 28, 2019 deadline is now less than one year away, and many organizations need to take advantage of every minute between now and then to be compliance-ready. Plus, busy registrar schedules, combined with your company’s certificate expiration, mean that you may have less time to prepare than you think.
Pilgrim is here to help you along the path to compliance. Are you ready to move forward?

“Quality isn’t an act, it’s a habit.”
Aristotle said it first. But it doesn’t take a philosopher or a scientist to recognize that excellence doesn’t happen overnight. Just ask the drum major in the local high school band or the prima ballerina in the regional ballet company. It takes ongoing commitment to reach the pinnacle and continuous approaches to quality improvement to remain there.
The QA director at a leading pharma or medical device company know this, too. Very well. The practice of continual improvement starts with a unified, enterprise-wide commitment to ongoing best efforts and to process improvement.
