Olivier DE ROBILLARD - YVEL
“This training course has enabled me to desacralise audits and to get the trigger to carry them out. I can now better understand the work to be done before and after the audits. “
Mickaël GUIHARD - 3M
“What I particularly appreciated in this mode of intervention is that the consultant starts from our reality, from us, and not from a theory or a concept that must then be transposed: we remained very focused on our situation and, through a permanent exchange between the consultant and myself, the work progressed. Each work sequence was the subject of a report drawn up by the consultant: these reports did not simply record our exchanges, but proposed ways of improving the operation of our quality management system; all these proposals were studied and many were implemented. “
