Q!Engagement

Benefits

You have an experienced quality expert on tap without the expense of staff overheads. We become familiar with your systems, people and issues whilst still providing an independent and external perspective. The number of consulting days may vary from month to month, so we bill by the day, according to agreed budget limits.

What we do

We help you to manage and deliver peak or  variable workload, both planned and unplanned. Typically, we take the lead on objective setting, KPIs, auditing, management review, action tracking and change management. We can turn up our engagement whenever you need extra input.

What you get

Confidence that, whatever quality issues arise, you have a flexible, expert resource to fall back on. Not just maintaining your management system, but providing input to proposals, products, services, projects, quality planning, problem solving, investigations and advice.

Benefits

You have an experienced quality manager on a part-time, low cost basis. We provide a fixed level of support with specific activities for a fixed monthly payment. The number of consulting days is fixed per month or quarter, so you know exactly how much you will be spending in the year ahead. 

What we do

We visit your site once a month or once a quarter to take care of specific maintenance and development activities in your management system. Typically, we cover objective setting, KPIs, auditing, management review, action tracking and change management. 

What you get

Confidence that the key leadership activities in your management system are taking place and will meet certification requirements. We don’t let you abdicate your ISO responsibilities, but we do a lot of the work for you and make sure you stay auditable.

Benefits

You call us into action if, and only if, you need us. Rates and terms may be negotiated for each assignment, or they may be agreed in advance, allowing us to respond immediately when you call (subject to availability).

What we do

Every call-off engagement is unique, so you tell us what you want us to do and we get on with it, subject to availability. 

What you get

It depends what you ask for. It could be a single audit, a document review, a plan for change, chairing a meeting, training your auditors – you name it.

Benefits

We sign an agreement to collaborate on a joint enterprise, pooling our expertise and resources to develop a new product or service offering with a view to profit-sharing when the project comes to fruition.  We absorb our own costs. 

What we do

We work with you on a specific development activity or project. For example, we may collaborate on a joint training development or marketing initiative.

What you get

Our expertise invested in your project for the long-term. Input during concept development and planning, specific deliverables, promotional support. 

Benefits

We sign an agreement to join your organization as an associate. When mutually beneficial opportunities arise, and subject to availability, we join your project team. There is no guarantee of work or support on either side. Days and rates may vary with each assignment.

What we do

We work on mid/long-term client-facing projects as a fully integrated member of your team. Alternatively, we take short-term assignments to deliver specific pieces of work or facilitate/lead specific events.

What you get

A known, capable and flexible resource, familiar with your ways of working and able to switch seamlessly from QFactorial mode to representing your organization when dealing with your clients. 

When we work with a client over a long period of time, we can really get to know them, their people and their systems. Whenever they need our support, we can switch quickly and effectively into their mode of operation.
