Understanding the difference between quality management (process verification) and project management is the first step in transforming your organization from reactive to effective.
Notice that I didn’t say reactive to proactive. Being proactive does not always mean being effective or efficient – and being efficient is not the most important thing.
There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all. – Peter Drucker (Click to Tweet)
Effective organizations are deliberate in the way they operate. They abide by meaningful, testable policies that enhance the quality of their work and provide opportunity for growth.
They have mechanisms in place to ensure that every element of their process adds value; that each contributes to the overall success of the project in a manner that is consistent with the time and effort the process demands.
Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing. – Warren Buffett (Click to Tweet)
Which is more important:
Risk management or quality assurance?
A pile of data that no one can validate or a few accurate, meaningful data points?
Maintaining status-quo or being a leader?
Process verification is not a new way to make the old way of doing business easier. Process verification is an entirely new way of doing business; one that brings an immediate increase in quality and value to every project.
