Compliance Seminars®

Develop your QA role

Strategic communication
- Develop your QA role

Strengthen the Team Spirit within the company, fight the "Us vs. Them" mentality


Background:

No matter what you are working with, you have one thing in common with all others within the organisation - there are always people who need to be convinced, motivated and inspired. Working in QA means that there are high and sometimes conflicting demands on you from both the authorities and the organisation.

The quality function of the company has an overall responsibility and should be independent of the business operations. Although we wish that "everyone" should take responsibility for quality, we sometimes tend to think in terms “us vs. them”. How should the quality function within the company both create a quality mind set within the organisation to encourage improvements and at the same time keep enough independence and so-called "QA Oversight"?

”If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. – Nelson Mandela

Course description:

The course assumes that you have basic knowledge of the GMP compliance requirements for QA/QC responsibilities. The course is preceded by a questionnaire with a number of questions we would like you to answer. This is to make it possible to adapt the course to your needs and desires.

We review different tools for clear communication about e.g. requirements and expectations in different situations. These tools may help QA staff to be seen as positive leaders that inspires quality work - ambassadors for quality that has the overall understanding of the requirements and expectations.

We train the course participants to communicate with confidence so that the members of the organisation are willing to accept and act upon what is communicated. The structures and tools we use during the training can be applied in both large and small context.

During the course we mix presentations, workshops, case studies and practical exercises. The course is led by internationally renowned trainers in leadership and communication.

The course is carried out over 2 intensive days and there will be 2 trainers working interactively with the participants. We aim for a high pace to make the course as efficient for the participants as possible. We always start from the participants' professional reality.
