NEW QUALIFICATION PROGAM "MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS"
Together with our network partner Akademie Würth we are offering a qualification program "Management systems" which is a practical qualification in order to reach an uniform knowledge and understanding of quality-, environmental- and energy management and to convey the participants the required knowledge and tools they need.
Quality results from the inner attitude of people and has to be lived and improved constantly - technical resources are not sufficient on their own. With special qualification programs employees are able to learn skills which are up-to-date. Kolja Berg and Carlo Schürg are leading this quality program as trainers. The program is available in our download area on our website.
Registrations are possible on this website: https://www.wuerth.de/web/de/awkg/services_link/seminare_events/anmeldeformular_seminar_allgemein.php

Lean in the range of integrated management systems
Lean as a project doesn't work actually: change management and transculturation are the bullet points. But what happens when an organisation doesn't want to change or is apparently happy with its culture? Then it can be helpful to integrate lean in the existing management and organisation structure and to pass off the lean culture into the company because the ISO-norm demand qualit audits, standards, processes and trainings - attributes which are familiar to lean. This is lean itself. At the #latc2019 event Thomas Mück, our network partner and leader of the academy Würth, explained where he sees chances and risks. The recording of the speech can be found here: https://leanbase.de/publishing/latc-reviews/lean-im-rahmen-integrierter

To all our customers, partners, networkers and of course our team for the past 20 years. On june, 27th in 2019 we celebrated our ceremony with over 100 guests and took the opportunity to take a journey into our past. Dr. Walter Döring, former Minister for Economic Affairs in Baden-Württemberg, Prof. Dr. Dr. Harald Unkelbach, president of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Heilbronn-Franken, and Jann Hendrik Swyter, management and global market leader of Veigel GmbH & Co. KG, discussed with us and our guest the present and the current economical situation. With our surprise act, the magician David Pricking, and our future fairy Christiane Maschajechi we could take a look into the future and experienced some magic.
The evening spun away and at the end common memories were made and maybe the statement of the evening stays in the heads: "Just do it - it could be great!"

New quality program "management systems"
Quality starts in the head and in the heart. The personal attitude decides on the process and the product quality, not only the technical resources. Quality is a value by itself and it has to be improved constantly.
Therefore we have developed an adequate quality program "management systems" with our partner, Academy Würth. This is the place where skills can be trained in order to cope with challenges concerning processes in companies. Kolja Berg and Carlo Schürg lead the trainings in this quality program.

Let's start the new year!
At the very beginning of 2019 we had two PL-strategy days in order to review the last year and to define goals and new strategies for this year to come. In our 20th jubilee year we want to focus on the best for our customers and for us.
For the second time our conference took place at the Schindlerhof in Nürnberg - again a great experience. Especially the sushi-line was extraordinary, could be a nice idea for our office, too.
We celebrate our anniversary!
Since 1999 we love to design and implement structures and processes in a wide variety of industries and companies. We work for and with our customers with conviction and passion. Transparent project management from the very beginning - for now and the next 20 years!

Successfull project realization at Normfest
Congratulations to our customer Normfest who has successfully passed the certification process and received the certificate of the new IS0 9001:2015.
Within the framework of this project PL engineering was assigned with the required norm revision. In the course of this project an interactive process flow chart was established and implemented. All processes in the company were collected and a new quality management system based on the requirement of ISO 9001:2015 was set up. In this context PL undertook an internal quality system audit and attended successfully the following certification audit.
The next steps will be the integration of ISO 27001 in the process flow chart (information security management) as well as the introduction of ISO 14001 (environmental management) to an integrated management system.
