I just move home from Manchester to Birmingham. A lot of things need to do this week. Finally, I can do some research about the PMA. At first, I struggled in choosing questions and enterprise. I have decided to answer first question, However, the selection of company is very diffcult. The most knowable enterprises has very good performance, and processing in continous improvment. However, I have limitation of understanding on UK SMEs. In addition Chinese SMEs are very diffcult to find surpporting documnet in English. Ultimately, I have choosen HTC corporation which is a taiwanese multinational manufacture of smartphones and tablets. Accoring to poor proformance in recent years, it has to find apporach to improve continuously. Obviously, it faces many diffuclties, for example, Apple, Samusng are very strong in high-end consumer group. In addition, Xiaomi, Huawei are dominant in low price mobile devices. How does HTC overcome the dilemma. How does EFQM excellenc model surpport my assumption and proposal? I am very interested in this area of researching.

The biggest different between Auditing and self-assessment is that the assessor from external(Third party) in auditing, but self-assessment is from themsleves.
ISO 9000 use auditing to provide quality control, EFQM is quality management through self-assessment.
ISO 9000 are a set of quality managemnt standard, EFQM gives innovation to stakholders and improveing organization continuously.
ISO gives certificate to organization, but I prefer using EFQM in organization, it creates a learning environment to stakeholder, more chance to continued improveing the organization, it is holistic view of whole organization rather than just focuse limited points.

We should focus more on Quadrant 2(Not Urgent, Important) in our daily life, but sometimes, Urgent things will come to our schedule, we should distinguish the importance to us, not important things should not come to our schedule.

This is the mid of week, our group have done two meeting about our mini projects, including (1) ISO9000 VS EFQM

The presentation will be comparsion between ISO9000:2008 and EFQM model, we make tables to compare them and disscus more on critical analysis & evaluation both of them.
(2)Measurement of result
In the case, the measurement of result method only compared the volume of production in manufacturing over timeline. we all agree with result should relate to performance.
We are under schedule, Continuing...
