ISO 9001-2008 are standards that must be complied with in order for many companies to maintain a customer base due to the nature of their product. Tina helps to audit and rewrite documentation to maintain compliance with that standard for her current employer. A quality system is something that not only maintains the standard but also works by creating an environment in which quality thrives. Training for understanding this system and its components lie with the ISO audit team that Tina is involved with. She helps by creating training documents and handouts to build the understanding of others.
In the office Tina has built forms with excel that make sense and are helpful when filling them out. She has found that forms are well intended but seldom do all that is needed. She states that many time the only reasons a document isn't filled out stems from being non-user friendly. In general people just don't know what to do with it or it takes a long time to fill out. She feels that documents should be concise.
Lean manufacturing is used to reduce waste in all levels of a company. Tina Leads events to excavate avenues that will make that happen. Ideas used do not come from her but are gleaned from people that do the work. She used their ideas and dreams working them into a usable platform of change. When those changes have been made they were shared with the rest of the company in a presentation she created helping others celebrate their improvements.
