PMI have partnered with the CQI to sponsor this year’s Innovation through Quality Method Award, to celebrate the impact that individuals, teams & organisations have, creating an environment where quality is a priority & improvement is continuous.

PMI have a long-held belief that quality and improvement go hand in hand for optimum business efficiency, effectiveness and organisational transformation.  Since 1984, the performance improvement consultancy firm has been enabling their clients around the world across all functional areas and with every kind of performance challenge, to improve their business performance.

Innovation is crucial to an organisation’s sustainability, to its future success. It ensures the organisation evolves, remains competitive and relevant to its customers. Innovation without a quality method is otherwise known as ‘chance’! Having a quality method to support innovation enables organisations to cut through the chaos to be creative and purposeful, apply problem solving techniques to generate fresh ideas which help them grow, survive and succeed. PMI are proud to sponsor this award and promote the need and value of a structured, quality approach to making innovation happen, on purpose!

Working across all functional areas, with every kind of performance challenge, their 6 specialist practice areas enable organisations to improve business performance through better processes and more engaged people. They also believe that celebrating success helps people to maintain their momentum in the relentless pursuit of quality and improvement.  Underpinned by their unique philosophy and methodology; helping clients to eliminate waste, reduce variation and delight their customers; improving the results they achieve now and in the future, makes PMI an exceptional fit for this year’s Innovation through Quality Method category.

The CQI introduced the Innovation through Quality Method Award to recognise those people and organisations who know what innovation they seek and who invest in making it happen. Consequently, it’s appropriate that our sponsor for 2018 is an organisation that understands what it takes to make improvement a normal business practice. PMI not only understands this deeply but they also put this into effect internally.
