Meeting Management Software For All Kinds of Businesses
Meetings and Reviews
The Meeting and Review module in Total Lean Management software provides everything you need to meet the requirements of the various ISO requirements or FDA regulations that require a record of management meetings and other events where decisions are made related to the quality system.

ISO 13485 Section 5.6
ISO 9001 Section 9.3
IS/TS 16949 Section 5.6
FDA 21 CFR Section 820.20(c)
- Corrective Actions.
- Sales Orders.
- Action Items.
- Meeting Minutes.
- Attendee list.
- Document Changes.
Meetings and Reviews
The Foundation of Your Digital Landscape.
- Documenting and connecting management decisions accelerates implementation!
- The Quality Policy is continuously displayed on the TLM main menu.
- The TLM Web App ensures Quality Policy review by all users every 30 days.
- Record the review of established KPIs and Metrics, the troops will focus on what the boss is looking at.
In principle, many ISO and regulatory requirements boil down to a requirement to consider a potential risk, and make a record of that consideration and any actions that resulted. Those decisions can then be compared to results, and if the results don’t make those decisions look terrible, the decisions to act or not act after a risk was considered is totally up to management to decide.
The Meetings and Reviews module capitalizes on this fact by providing you with customizable meeting agenda templates for maximum impact on compliance requirements.
- Customizable Meeting Agenda Templates.
- Link agenda items to the TLM Risk & Opportunities module.
It also serves to create the foundation of your company’s digital landscape which saves you as much as possible from purchasing disconnected stand alone software, and provides the technical support for integrating other information systems when necessary.
All TLM software modules are rolled up to a user specific dashboard and summaries of each user's dashboard can be automatically emailed to ensure QMS activities are scheduled and prioritized accordingly.
In addition, the TLM dashboard helps users navigate to where tasks are performed, making it easy for new users to adopt the software without having to pay for extra training before being able to put TLM software to work for your company.
- The Meetings and Reviews module within your quality management system enables management to improve the time spent in Quadrant 2 Time Management from Stephen Covey’s classic “7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”
- Proactive Work.
- Important Goals.
- Creative Thinking.
- Planning and Prevention.
All QMS standards require both external audits by a registration body that determines if ISO certification will be awarded, as well as internal audits by the company. The purpose of the external audits is to identify areas of the Quality Management System (QMS) that do not meet ISO requirements.
While your internal audits have the same purpose, they are not limited to this purpose and should also be used to go beyond compliance and into excellence.
TLM Audit software is highly integrated with other modules such as your internal procedures and several action based modules such as corrective actions and action plans to ensure your audit findings can drive improvements towards excellence.
Of all the factors that drive human behavior, whether positive or negative, none are as universal as the need to evolve, whether we are conscious of it or not.
Your management team can create impressive organizational growth by harnessing this basic element of the human experience and the TLM audit module is one of the key tools for their success in this effort.
By organizing key aspects of how work is done, to include internal procedures and how employee job descriptions and responsibilities are defined, managers can use internal audits as the landscape for employees to demonstrate and get rewarded for their participation in finding opportunities for improvement.
TLM Audit Software ensures these efforts are well organized, linked to all other aspects of the QMS that might be related, and assigned to ensure employees who rise to the occasion can be recognized accordingly.
Historically the decision to implement ISO was driven by the consequences of NOT being ISO certified when competitors were using ISO certification to win new business from customers who needed confidence in their supplier’s ability to consistently meet requirements.
This resulted in a lot of paper based systems set up by various “consultants” that advocated vague procedures that could technically meet the requirements of the ISO standard, but in reality did very little to improve quality or any other aspect of the business.
Times have changed, and the introduction of QMS software allowed organizations to take a different approach to their quality system and instead of wasting tons of time and money for little benefit, they are using their QMS to improve all aspects of the business.
At least the companies who could afford the high cost of most QMS software.
The whole point of ISO based quality standards is to address the minimum risks across every aspect of the business that could have consequences to customer satisfaction. Unfortunately, by calling them “quality” standards, a misperception developed over the years that caused managers to think of quality as something the “quality department” was responsible for.
Total Lean Management (TLM) Software corrects this misperception by acting as an integrated management tool not only for compliance, but as the framework for how a company evolves. Audit management software can be a vital component of this evolution, provided it is integrated with all the other aspects of the business to make auditing easier, faster, and more insightful.
There is Only One Type of Quality Management System
Over the last 20 years TLM has discovered a very basic truth when it comes to information management systems such as your eQMS, no two companies have the exact same needs.
In fact, the two biggest risks in the software selection process is either selecting software that is not flexible enough to manage information that is unique, and important to your workflow, thus forcing work arounds, or other concessions that effectively add waste to your business.
The other mistake is getting stuck with comprehensive, but inflexible systems due to their web based cloud hosting design, which forces a one size fits all approach to meeting customer needs.
And while one size might fit some, it might not fit all your needs when in the long run your understanding of those needs evolves and improves.
Total Lean Management Software, by definition, recognizes this fact, and addresses it through a dual technology, upstream / downstream user landscape approach to meeting the needs of both your upstream and downstream user types. This is combined with our tiered approach to addressing newly discovered customer needs, making sure the software works in alignment with your business systems the day after your purchase, and for all the years ahead.
These measures include:
Allows you to adapt the software to your company’s terminology.
Allows you to choose which features are applied to your process.
Incorporating employee feedback into the continuous improvement cycle creates a synergistic effect on moral, engagement, and productivity.
This capability provides insurance that your system will never leave you stuck after discovering unknown needs after implementation.
By implementing and combining modules in way that might be unique to your business or work flows.
Evolution is a team effort, and the whole team behind TLM enjoys helping companies comply with regulations, manage risk, continuously improve, and maintain a steady growth rate.
This unique TLM feature allows you to link individual screens in TLM to your own controlled procedures or work instructions for that area of the software (if needed).
