Systematically establishing quint-essenz in an organization is worthwhile:
- It ensures that a common understanding of terms is established within the organization
- When the approach to projects is uniformly defined, this provides focus and security
- If everyone is using the same quality criteria and tools, this simplifies the exchange of expertise
- Systematic reflection in the projects improves their quality and effectiveness
To ensure that quality development is not left to each individual project but is the responsibility of the organization, an own quality culture can be established. Make use of the quint-essenz consultations to determine the potential for systematic integration with relevant experts (consultancy service for Switzerland only).
