For many organizations, accreditation demonstrates a commitment to improve quality, manage risk, and distinguish itself from its competitors. The challenge is choosing an accreditation organization (AO) that fits in with your organizational culture and philosophy. Today more than ever, selecting an AO is a strategic decision which requires research to find the right organizational fit.
Sometimes, what was great then, doesn’t always fit now. This is because organizations change as do accreditors. It may not be possible to know why you are accredited by a certain AO, or it may be because that has always been the case. Having a look into other options can be daunting. This brief provides insights to thought provoking questions that aim to facilitate the decision-making process.
