Greetings to ASQ London Section members!

audit graphicAuditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. - Institute of Internal Auditors

We had the opportunity to have one our own, Elizabeth Burns who is an ASQ Fellow as a speaker for our February meeting.

She shared her experience of auditing, training auditors in companies to become self sufficient and also help companies implement the quality standards through her consulting firm E. Burns Consulting. Many of us at the meeting were internal auditors or auditees. We were able to learn how:

  • Small & medium enterprises implement quality standards & it has to be tailored process
  • How an internal or an independent auditor can provide value during this process
  • Good planning, proper communication, focusing on facts, sharing best practices and delivering value to the customer will help make it a successful audit

Kindly take time to visit our ASQ London webpage to look at job board for London and area jobs in the quality field. It is another feature to add value to ASQ London members.
ASQ London members have asked us if they can get a refresher course to write the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer exam and we have made it happen.
