The idea behind ISO9000 is self propagation. 

It spreads down the supply chain like an infectious disease.

I wonder what percentage of companies would have ISO9000 were it not for
ISO9000 induced pressure from thier customers? Single digit is my guess. 

Perhaps that is an indication of its real value.
