Consulting & Facilitation

Our track record & experience means that you are assured of world class considered selection of the best approach – sequence of events, prioritisation & methodology. We do this for a living – consistently & successfully.  Value & value add is delivered through: –

  • Calibre, competence & experience of the facilitators – you consume our service as it is being delivered – there are no second chances or rework.
  • Compliance to the Baseline Standard is a given – but does the compliance come with a hidden/ongoing cost? Our facilitators implement processes that deliver a positive return on your investment – not another cost line item.
  • You are contracting with Applied Managerial Science Experts.
  • Best Practice Methodology – The practices & processes you follow/adopt can meet the relevant standard… but do they represent best practice, tailored for your environment? The W&A methodology harnesses best practice across the globe & continually updates & applies it.
  • Time is Money – We allocate our Subject Matter Experts on site on an intensity & frequency designed to optimise cost in relation to time & effort & result.
  • Internal Capacity – We specifically cater for your requirements in terms of Training/Capacity development.

W&A will manage the implementation project through onsite training and facilitation with key role players and offsite support with progress implementation reporting after every session.

Do you need assistance with post certification support?

Have you recently been certified in your chosen international standard?
Are you grappling with certified system maintenance and improvement?

Achieving certification is one thing – maintaining and improving your system is another!

We ensure that you not only stay at compliance level – but give you an organization-wide system for driving performance improvement:

Ongoing Process and Documentation Improvements

You are provided with your own Continual Improvement Library (the CIL) for documentation, keeping you updated with modifications, improvements and additions to your relevant international standard documentation.

Regular change alerts advise you of improvements & additions and, through your PIN-enabled access, you are able to review, download and tailor documentation from the Library.

Internal Audits

We develop and implement your Internal Audit Programme based on a comprehensive risk assessment which prioritizes critical audits and we conduct a system compliance audit, typically prior to your annual management review.

We work as an extension of your management team conducting internal audits, typically on a quarterly basis.

Risk Assessment Reviews

Change is the only constant – new suppliers, methods, people and equipment could lead to new hazards; your risk assessments require regular review.

We assist your management team with regular risk assessment reviews in food safety (HACCP), Environment (ERA), OHS (HIRA) and Business Processes.

Management Review Facilitation

Management reviews are the single most important event on your management system calendar – transform these reviews into value adding workshops, engaging your management team, delivering real benefit through our facilitated approach.

Compliance Management Software – online, real time.

Speed up critical compliance data capture and analysis while reducing their administrative burden. This can be achieved through a simple, user-friendly system on your mobile device or from your desktop computer.
Modules include:

  • non conformances
  • corrective action
  • internal audits
  • to-do action tracking
  • document control

Supplier Quality Assurance

Supplier Audits

Do Supplier Audits effectively manage your risk? Of course not – at best they evaluate the degree of risk to which you are exposed. They represent one of the elements of an effective Supplier Quality Assurance Program – which starts with a practical assessment of the risks you are encountering & develops into an effective risk management program in which supplier audits play an important role.

Technology enables us to monitor key variables in Supply Chains – harnessing this information will make your SQA program deliver quantifiable return.

Remember – “The Cost of Compliance should be Zero”.
