Productivity & Quality Improvement

 
Examine the steps, processes and procedures necessary to ensure quality assurance of the products and services your agency provides. Analyze each of the steps: definition, development, implementation and change management, monitoring and documentation using examples from your own agency.

More

Through a series of hands-on activities, discussions and assessments this workshop systematically examines the steps, processes and procedures necessary to ensure quality assurance of the products and services your agency provides. By definition, quality assurance is the activity of providing evidence that establishes confidence among all concerned (citizens, customers, employees, elected officials, etc.) that the product or service satisfies given requirements for quality.

Participants use examples from their own agency to assure quality of their products or services. We systematically examine each of the quality assurance steps (definition; development; implementation and change management; monitoring and documentation).
