Our quality management approach

Quality assurance is embedded in the IIG DNA and practices.
While quality has always been included in the IIG operating model through regular performance reviews, accreditations and sound process management particularly in academia, it has continuously evolved over the last year.
The IIG quality philosophy is based on a  strong process and performance management following the PDCA cycle (Plan / Do / Check / Acts).
The IIG Quality assurance approach starts with the Vision and Mission, declined into a 3-year strategic planning. The plan is then cascaded into the different departments - academic and non-academic functions - and key performance indicators are set in contribution to the strategic goals. The effectiveness and efficiency of the IIG processes are regularly reviewed as part of the committees’ agenda and actions are taken in case of deviations or abnormality.
Moreover, IIG has a set of policies ensuring that major issues are properly investigated following a root cause analysis with clear roles and responsibilities. The overall Quality approach is driven through a well-structured governance model made of different and independent bodies
