Branding isn't only about logos and colours. It’s about who you are, what you are, what you say, do and create. Our brand values have been with us from the start and they are reflected in the way we have delivered projects for our clients. The decisions we make, the actions we take, the way we behave and the things we say - all are rooted in these brand values.
Ethical Decisions - Doing the right things for the right reasons
Collaborative Working - Bending to your shape, rolling with your changes
Integrated Solutions - Joined-up thinking, connected to business realities
Challenging Perceptions - Thinking, seeing, doing differently
Improving Performance - Building on your foundations, supporting your growth
We start with an open mind - you know what makes your business tick, we know what works to achieve quality. Together we set the objectives for your project, driven by your business needs. We develop a bespoke action plan so whatever the challenge, the solution is designed to fit the purpose; which means it is scoped, scaled and balanced for optimum impact. We work closely with you to implement the solution, then support you for as long as you need us to. We think about every project in a structured way, regardless of size, scope, duration or budget. The level of formality may vary, but our level of diligence is the same.
We don’t offer a solution until we have diagnosed the problem. Our diagnostic toolkit includes audits, document reviews, gap and synergy assessments, stakeholder surveys, process walks, context analysis, data analysis, root cause analysis, risk assessment, maturity assessment, optioneering, SWOT, PESTLE and bespoke investigations combining several of these techniques.
We don’t believe in off-the-shelf solutions. One size rarely fits all. Your organization is unique, your business is bespoke. Your people and culture are yours alone. The context in which you operate and the needs and expectations of your stakeholders may be similar but not identical to your competitors. We consider all of this when designing and planning a solution to meet your particular challenges.
It’s a long way from designing a solution to real-life implementation. Plans on paper have to be developed into detailed and practical strategies, systems, processes, tools and assurance programmes. We can help you to develop the rules, tools and communications necessary to embed and sustain a quality solution. Now you are ready to start reaping the rewards from your investment in quality.
Implement, implement, implement! That’s how some organizations and indeed some consultants like to do it. But failing to plan is the same as planning to fail. Hence our insistence on the three D’s – Diagnosis, Design and Development – before getting down to implementation. Armed with a robust plan, we are with you all the way to meeting your quality objectives whilst aligning with your overall business goals.
We believe that every business, every organization, is different. With that thought in mind, wouldn’t it be crazy if they all had the same management systems and strategies? But that is exactly what happens when standard templates and models are used instead of creativity and imagination. Unsatisfactory cloning is especially common in the world of ISO management systems. We’ve seen some shockingly unsuitable systems inflicted on businesses by shameless copying. That is why we don’t provide standard templates. You deserve better.Who we work for
