Moving from Firefighting to Doing it Right the First Time

At Cyntegrity, we understand that implementing Risk-Based Quality Management (RBQM) can be challenging, especially when it comes to understanding its practicalities. This is why we developed our RBQM Essentials Belt training series – to help you get the benefits of RBQM and move from firefighting to doing it right the first time.

A Training Series for Everyone

Our White, Green, and Black Belt levels cater to everyone, from those who need a basic understanding of RBQM to practitioners who require full in-depth training. Each level includes a knowledge exam and certification of completion.

“We developed our RBQM Essentials Belt training series as part of our commitment to the industry to help adopt RBQM and get the benefits – moving from firefighting to doing it right the first time (as Process Improvement Guru W. Edwards Deming once said*).” – Keith Dorricott, MBB, MyRBQM Academy Instructor

More Practicality and Interactivity

Recently, we’ve renovated our training series to include more practical examples and interactivity. Our Black Belt level now comprises four modules covering KRI and QTL design, Central Monitoring, Facilitating RBQM, and Change Management.

Real-Life Exercise for Black Belt Mastery Certification

We’ve also added a practical exercise where participants apply all the risk assessment theory on a real-life protocol. This exercise is followed by a one-to-one mentoring session for Cyntegrity Black Belt Mastery Certification.

Positive Feedback

We’re proud to say that our first two candidates completed the Black Belt Mastery Certification and demonstrated an excellent understanding of RBQM principles and practicalities. They described the course as “excellent” and appreciated the opportunity to share their experiences, thoughts, and insights.

*W. Edwards Deming: “You get a good rating for fighting a fire. The result is visible; can be quantified.  If you do it right the first time, you are invisible. You satisfied the requirements. That is your job. Mess it up, and correct it later, you become a hero.”

The first student  described the Black Belt Mastery Certification as “an excellent course” and said he liked the opportunity “to be interactive and to share experiences, thoughts, and insights.”
