Moving from ISO 9001:2008 to 9001:2015

Many quality-driven organizations use the ISO 9001 standards and many of them are dealing with the move from the 2008 to 2015 version of those standards.  Here are a couple of materials I've found helpful in this area.

Naturally, the ISO has information devoted to this change and a good staring point is their landing page on this topic [here]. On that page, they share a YouTube video from a Google Hangouts session on this topic.  That video is about 33 minutes long, worth the view in my opinion, and available [here]. This ISO landing page has a nice chart with  the evolution of this standard as well as some information about the standards development process - if you are interested in that kind of thing.
