Are you getting the most from your self inspection program?

More often than not the self inspection program happens once a year and bogs down QA resources.
Also, the program does not always have the support or respect from personnel (other than QA) or senior management. It it is often an uphill battle for QA to implement effectively.
I have found over the years that attaching a schedule to a self inspection program is something people are reluctant to commit to or try to make it as vague as possible.

And yet ..........within your schedule and frequency of inspections of various systems and processes, lies the opportunity to unleash the power of the program and make the inspection program work for you, your company and your resources.

If designed properly the self inspection program can add value to your business, by determining, measuring and identifying opportunities and threats relating to continual improvement of operations as well as being a compliance tool . When integrated properly with other quality systems It can improve operational effectiveness, efficiency and overall governance.

This webinar offers advice on how to get the most from your self inspection program.

 Participants are encouraged to bring their questions for the Question and Answer session.

  • Pauline is keen and hardworking, she loves her sciences and passionate about what she does. I so much enjoyed working with her, she has provided great insight on many technical and scientific issues related to analytical method development and analytical method validation. Her most important quality is her patience and perseverance and of course, fun to work with
  • Contracted Pauline to assess analytical methods validation, and to subsequently create a 'gap' report - and then to work at 'fixing' the gap. Pauline was excellent in her attention to detail, and her thorough knowledge of what was needed. She also worked on several projects after that one - always with the same high standards and commitment to provide value to the client. I heartily endorse her work.
  • Pauline is an excellent professional in the life science business. She did a great job as project manager in analytical development and validation at SGS Life Science Services. She was appreciated by her colleagues and her customers.
  • Pauline's ability to understand and integrate the scientific challenges of industry, with government and academia are unsurpassed. I am so confident with her ability to deliver meaningful yet pragmatic leadership as it applies to the pharmaceutical industry that I have recommended her to numerous prominent companies who have subsequently hired her and been extremely happy with the results she is able to deliver.
