Monitoring & Evaluation, Quality
Our Quality Framework
CRDF Global’s commitment to delivering high quality programs and services to our customers is represented in our Quality Framework. The central theme of the Quality Framework is the Plan, Do, Check, Act cycle, a system for continuous improvement. The Quality Framework ensures our work is infused with Our Values, is responsive to our customers’ needs and strives to exceed our customers’ expectations.
The Quality Framework is supported by a Quality Division that helps the staff practice continuous improvement. Using an approach combining principles from Lean, Six Sigma and Theory of Constraints, this group promotes a culture of quality and regularly leads organizational process improvements.
