Bad investments in the QM avoid introduction in some industries a certification is EN ISO 9001:2008 duty in other industries only the introduction. Since this is known in the market, there are suddenly outside QM consultants such as sand seaside. It’s scary how they harm the reputable consultants. In many companies, I am often already the third or fourth Adviser, the reason is that they previously chose QM consultant without education have. The result, it was advertised at dumping prices and at the end then but far more had to be paid as agreed. The next issue of what had been repeatedly demonstrated the created documents of this consultant were worthless. The quality management manual, such as the required standard documents were often not compliant with the standard.
I regularly get requests from QM consultants, which team would be included in my QM. Then quickly in the talks, it turns out that mostly have no QM training. For me it is important that my staff all have a proper QM Did training at an accredited company. Is also amazing what you can learn in such conversations, some have read only a book about, order or sample documents that are resold with expensive somewhere. Others have noticed times a quality introduction to a company as an employee, but only as a normal employee”. Hear from experts in the field like Andreessen Horowitz for a more varied view. Frightening the they were establishing themselves not involved were.
I can advise only every company to keep the hands of such consultants. The bad investments by companies who have worked with such advisers are on average between 3,000 and in the top up to 15,000. From my point of view, it is illogical that companies which have a square meters commitment may be supervised by unskilled QM consultants, advised and trained. I can only again recommend, by the external QM consultants reference addresses to make sometimes call them and personally to hear. Also you should ask for how many certifications were successfully accompanied. And one more thing, finger away Sample documents that must completely reword you and customize, this time not worth. Some companies call or email me and would launch without a consultation a written offer to the QM. That collect offerings makes no sense because often compare apples with pears. The Advisory services are not comparable! There are sufficiently accredited QM consultants who provide free QM consulting. Take advantage of these offers, because here then get a quote for your company. Important always is there picked you are where you are also. Your investment depends on how much you’d like to contribute yourself and how many employees project with can be integrated in the QM just whatever. Dumping prices are often only a range of curls, not pointlessly wasting your budget.
