An excellent history lesson ….
My favorite passage is….
“It is almost amusing to note how within a few short weeks of publication of ISO 9001:2000 there were suddenly so many experts on the subject. (In fact, one could get a real belly laugh from all the “experts” who had qualifications on the DRAFT versions of the standard, which were not even auditable!) The truth is, these “Sudden Experts” did nothing more than what the non-expert does: they read the books.”
