Consultation Process

The different steps are highly depen­dent on the objec­tive and the indi­vidual situ­a­tion in the company. Basi­cally, the advi­sory process can be divided into four phases, which vary in scope depending on the company.

1. Risk and hazard analysis

The consul­ta­tion begins with a detailed analysis of risks and dangers in the company. Poten­tial hazards and resulting risks are iden­ti­fied and clas­si­fied. (Correc­tive) measures already taken are eval­u­ated and poten­tial for improve­ment is iden­ti­fied. It may also be the case that neces­sary measures are defined directly at this stage.

2. Concep­tual phase

In the second phase, we agree with the client which specific steps are neces­sary and whether these will be taken on by Quant, the client will take them on himself or the client will carry them out with Quant’s support. Close coop­er­a­tion and inten­sive involve­ment of the customer in the deci­sions is partic­u­larly impor­tant to us here. This enables us to respond to the indi­vidual require­ments and circum­stances of the company and to find solu­tions that fit the company. This means, for example, using best prac­tices in the company for docu­men­ta­tion and processes.

3. Intro­duc­tion and training phase

The third step is to put the devel­oped concepts into prac­tice and to involve the employees who are crucial for a sustain­able imple­men­ta­tion. Our focus here is on courses and indi­vidual on-site training (“training on the job”). You can find out more about our training programme here.

4. Support and further development

After estab­lish­ment, we also offer long-term support and guid­ance, if this is desired by the client. Depending on the needs, we support you in the following aspects:

Certification, Crisis Management and Projekt Management
