RNR Services partners with clients to understand
their business needs and mission statement,
document the challenges ,
gather the best ideas from the client's "best and brightest" and
review market trends in technology
to develop goals and a "business/technology vision".
We then apply
the scientific, analytical methodologies of
Deming's Quality teachings,
established standards on the subject, such as
IT Information Library (ITIL),
International Standards Organization (ISO),
the American Society of Quality (ASQ)
other Industry Best Practices.
Basic to RNR Services's process is the full circle,
continual improvement process explained simply as "Plan-Do-Check-Act" (PDCA),
a technique made popular by Dr. W. Edwards Deming,
who is considered by many to be the father of modern quality control.
A fundamental principle of these methods is iteration.
Once a hypothesis is confirmed (or negated),
executing the cycle again will extend the knowledge further.
Repeating the PDCA cycle can bring us closer to the goal, usually a perfect operation and output.
In summary, we
develop a plan,
execute the plan,
measure our results and
review these results,
If the results don't meet the objectives, the proces is repeated..
Staff available in all of the above fields with partnerships through affiliates to provide the best results
to you, the customer.
