The Structure of the System

 1.   The system's methodology is structured in such a way that the variables influencing the effectiveness of a working community are described in their unique nature in twelve autonomous formative fields and summarised in the practice-oriented Ways to Quality Handbook, training seminars can be requested via Ways to Quality UK: link to adress

2.   A further stage involves the development of process steps by means of which these influences may be consciously implemented in a targeted way. The necessary perspectives are mediated to co-workers and those carrying responsibility in affiliated organisations, by means of courses and seminars or accompaniment by consultants.

3.   Various organisation systems and aids that have proved themselves in practice can be drawn on where they are suitable for the approach that an organisation has chosen and can contribute to its implementation. Generally available resources are not specifically mentioned in the Handbook. In certain cases however, where the system's chosen perspectives are not sufficiently taken into account, or where there are no suitable instruments available, new resources can be developed if needed and incorporated into the handbook.

4.   Finally, for each formative field the handbook describes principles and provisions that arise from the collaboration of responsible human beings.

The basic content and systematics of Ways to Quality are published in its Handbook and form the working basis for organisations affiliated to it. Since the system bases the dynamics of modern task-oriented communities on the efficacy of twelve effective forces, the interplay of these forces can lead to manifold possibilities for shaping collaborative working. A growing need for something to complement the handbook thus arose, so that the system's most essential and targeted elements and intentions could become visible in a kind of overview. This overview of the system arose for reasons of manageability, and it is now included as part of the Handbook.
