The system runs the business.
The people run the system.

Quality Management Systems
....and why even small businesses need them
Any quality-management system is based on a core engine of Plan-Do-Check-Act, which will improve the effectiveness of the operation when applied correctly over time.
Operating environment, stakeholders/competitors, market, leadership and culture; risks and resources.
Sales, design, production and delivery.
Measure your KPIs against the Plan; management team examines the data and decides on actions
Study the causes of KPI shortfalls and determine true corrective actions. Adjust the Plan accordingly.
