LPA – Layered Process Audit

Quality Tools & Standards - QTS09 - Inter/Intra

Verification of Standard Compliance (VRS) by multilevel audits.

LPA or job observations, depending on the company culture, are approaches that closely associate the operational management of organizations with the requirements of process monitoring.

On the one hand, they reinforce the bidirectional managerial relationship between managers and their employees, and on the other hand, they aim to make each line of authority responsible on its own perimeter for the respect of standards and thus on its own quality performance vis-à-vis of the clients.

This training will enable you to implement a structured organization of LPA (post observation / multilevel audits) at all hierarchical levels by integrating it into the daily management of the workstations up to the top management level.

This training is certified by FIEV.
