Quality management

Quality-driven strategies provide company directors with additional safeguards when growing their business in new national or international markets. Such strategies are the keys to improving the company’s performance, creating better working conditions for employees and fine-tuning processes for greater effectiveness. Read on for an overview of the strategies available to your company, especially voluntary standard ISO 9001:2015.

Certify your quality management system (QMS)

ISO 9001:2015 certification is the pathway to raising your company’s productivity, achieving operational savings and winning market shares.

Obtaining certification shows that your organization is structured, champions innovation, nurtures its customer relations and promotes teamwork.

Excessive consumption, supply chain failures, absenteeism… non-quality comes at a cost, especially in industry, as demonstrated by our survey among 816 companies (free download). What about you? Whereabouts are you with your quality strategy? Are you doing better than others or faring less well?

To find out, enter your data into our connected barometer! Indiko Quality is a free, unique online benchmarking tool. You can use this tool to set up a policy for achieving superior quality after comparing your results to other companies in the sector.

Enrol for quality management training

Whatever the maturity of your quality policy, whether a team project or an individual approach, choose your bespoke training course or create your own qualification-based course.
