PQA's Philosophies
  •  PQA believes your complex challenges require simple solutions.
     
  • All fundamental change originates from outside the current system.  PQA can be your change catalyst.
     
  • Nobody can help you until they understand you.  PQA is willing to make the investment to learn about you and your company.
     
  • Live is challenging enough.  You don't need unpleasant surprises.  PQA works hard to ensure you get what you expected.
     
  • You want experts that are honest, truthful, competent, and dependable.  When someone gives you all 4, you learn to trust them.  PQA is worthy of your trust.
     
  • Most compromises and trade-offs are caused by insufficient analysis or understanding.  Go ahead, challenge us with your "impossible" problem!

What PQA Doesn't Do

  • PQA doesn't work outside of our expertise.  Starting in 1988, PQA has invested 17 years in consulting, training, and implementation of business improvement projects.  PQA's Sr. Consultants have 20 to 30 years of varied experiences (not 1 year of experience repeated 30 times). Our initial experience (and our longest, deepest base) is in manufacturing.   Since the 80's, the tools and techniques PQA helped create started to be used in other sectors of the economy.  PQA has helped many different types of organizations and business sectors (ie. service, banking, retail sales, call centres, health care, food, construction, electronics, and technology centres) to adjust to their rapidly changing circumstances.  All of this is based on the fundamental tools and the Quality Revolution that started in manufacturing during the late 70's.  If PQA doesn't have the prior experience, we'll tell you so.  In some areas, there may not be anybody with exactly what would be best for you. However, PQA may be able to help you find the right person for your special situation.  Cross-fertilization of technology and business processes between sectors is one of PQA's specialties.
     
  • PQA is not a ISO Management System Registrar.  An ISO Registrar is prohibited from offering advise on how to best implement ISO-based management system requirements. Unlike a Registrar, PQA can advise you, and help customize ISO-based management system to your exact needs. PQA can help you implement your quality, environmental, or Health & Safety management system.  PQA can help you choose the best ISO Registrar; showing you how to initiate a win-win, value-added relationship with them.  Because of the important work we do, PQA is excluded from offering ISO-based Registrar services.
