Our fundamental belief is that Process Improvement is inextricably linked to People Improvement. If a business can create the right climate for Improvement, they can follow through with any Innovation including; Customer Excellence, Safety, Environmental and Energy. CJH can provide the following services in any business sector.
Project Management

CJH can provide Project Managers for any Process Improvement and  offer training in both traditional waterfall and Agile techniques. We can also provide Goshido, a Project Management tool built on the principles of Agile and Lean.
Assessment & Audit

Our Network includes EFQM Assessors and ISO Auditors in the following areas; ISO 9000, 14 000, 18 000 & 50 000. These audits can be used at the front end of a project to determine the current state and provide direction for plans. They also provide the standards templates for Quality Systems which are required for both compliance and entry into certain markets. As a company moves to steady state, Assessments and Audits can be used to generate Improvement Plans for the future.
