SSQC offers a distinctive approach to process definition and
implementation and methods selection that supports the complete range of
quality initiatives, from standards compliance, continuous process
improvement, total quality management, to business process re-engineering.
SSQC's approach is based on the fundamental precept that the success of
any process improvement initiative requires that it contribute to the success of an organization as an
integral part of the organization's culture and processes - not as an after thought,
add-on, certification, or enforcement function.
In all areas, SSQC tailors its efforts to deliver precisely the support required to
help its clients build their organizations' capabilities. This consistent attention to
organizational impact and attitudes is a critical factor in the successful implementation
of any change.
SSQC's common-sense and hands-on approach combines more than 3 decades
of experience in the delivery of software and hardware products in
integrated systems. The approach has been proven and
systematically refined in 20 years of assisting
hundreds of companies
to assess their current capability and define and implement effective, efficient
processes, whether they are seeking ISO 9001:2008 certification, a higher level CMMI
certification, or a
radical new way of doing business.
