GIRI Quality Alert initiative launched

13 Jan 22

Get It Right Initiative executive director Cliff Smith is urging GIRI members to share their own experiences of quality issues to assist other teams in eliminating error.

Most companies already have systems in place through which they circulate advice and updates on quality issues to project teams and technical departments; now GIRI has created a similar process for sharing this information throughout the organisation. Cliff is calling on GIRI members to put their words into actions, and contribute practical advice, know-how and experience of quality issues to the GIRI Quality Alert Initiative.

The initiative, which was launched today, will be trialled among GIRI members for a six-month period at the outset. Member companies are invited to use the Quality Alert Proforma online to submit details of quality issues they have noted and addressed.

These will be assessed, anonymised, compiled, and shared with other GIRI members to assist knowledge transfer within the organisation and support our zero-error quest.

Issues will be logged by GIRI so that any trends can be identified and used to pinpoint future priorities for research and development. 

The form should take between five and ten minutes to fill in, depending on the complexity of the issue. A Word version is available here which can be downloaded and circulated to your team. An example of the completed form is available to download here.

Cliff said: "I want to stress that we are not seeking to add another administrative burden to the industry. One of the prime objectives of the Get It Right Initiative is to support knowledge sharing in the quest for error reduction, and the purpose of the Quality Alert Initiative is to provide members with a means by which to share and benefit from the experience of others."
