  SQM - Sustainable Quality Management


SQM System




SQM-praxis is setting up a collection of internet-based instruments which cover the whole life cycle of programmes and projects, from the initial design to the final evaluation.

All SQM online instruments are based on elementary SQM appraisals. Using a modular system they can provide support for every task in establishing, managing and evaluating development programmes including complex handling of qualitative and quantitative data. SQM online instruments are specifically designed for involving a large number of persons, via the Internet or via the registration of  outputs of workshops, interviews etc. in freely definable forms

SQM online instruments are run on a central web server. They are accessible with commercial web browsers without the need to install and update local software. A sophisticated system of passwords and licenses ensures the security of confidential data.

All SQM online instruments contain predefined tasks and forms which are based on a long experience in many European countries. These tasks and forms can be modified according specific needs. Additional libraries of specific task and form definitions will be available as collective experience with these tools grows.
