3 Key Principles to Improve Quality Management
Quality management is becoming the first port of call for organisations that strive to produce products and services of consistent quality to attract and keep customers. Creating and implementing a quality management strategy is a must to maintain a competitive edge.
So how do organisations make quality a focal point to improve quality performance across the board? These three key principles may help.
1. Focus on continuous systems improvement
If you want to improve quality management and processes, you need to make continual improvement a standalone focus. This approach implies identifying, understanding and managing all systems in the business with a quality improvement metric in mind.
Focusing on system improvement helps to gain insights about the overall performance of the organisation regarding quality in all your processes. This approach helps in attaining desired results and managing activities and available resources efficiently.
2. Base decisions on factual data analysis
Take a factual approach to decision-making when it comes to quality management and performance. Data analysis is more effective and efficient in determining the evolution of quality processes.
Invest in a management system that compiles and analyses data about quality control and compliance and drives more accurate decision-making. This solution can transform data into rich visuals easy to collect and organise and spot any quality concerns.
SHEQX’s solution transforms your company’s data into rich visuals for you to collect and organise, so you can focus on what matters to you. Stay in the know, spot trends as they happen and push your business further.
3. Invest in Quality Management Compliance
Adhering to the International Standard for Quality Management ISO 9001 is an important step for organisations to certify the quality of their business systems and processes as stipulated globally. It also shows product and service consistency in the marketplace.
Ensure effective compliance with ISO 9001 via an integrated quality management system that gathers and manages all company data efficiently to monitors key performance indicators related to quality management and control.
