Please take a minute to consider a situation where:
Could adopting a Quality management system have helped avoid some of these situations? In what manner?
Quality Management Approaches
For each of the previously presented quality management approach (PDCA Cycle, EFQM, ISO, EMAS), consider the following questions:
After completing your analysis, which approach do you feel is best suited for your needs? Is there anything you would consider to borrow from the others? Do you know of any other approaches?
Sustainability Risk Model
Using the sustainability risk model, please give one example each of a situation with:
Is any of the categories hard to populate? If you had to choose between a low consequence, but very probable risk, and a high consequence, and less probable risk, which is the one you would prioritize? Why?

Open Organisational Culture
Open culture is more than a buzzword! Reflect on the question „What, in your opinion, constitutes an open culture?“
Consider in particular the following elements:
Please review the 17 Sustainable Development Goals on the SGD Compass website. Please select one that you can identify as a main priority and one as a secondary one.
Please read the SGD Compass Guide. Do you feel prepared to implement the SGD Compass in your practice. Is it well-suited to you needs? Do you find it easy to understand and explain to others?
EQFM offers a questionnaire to help an organisation identify those SDGs that are relevant to its purpose and assess its approach to integrating and embedding them in its strategy. It assists organisations to identify their current position and determine potential improvement opportunities to strengthen the relationship. The questionnaire follows the logic of the EFQM Model with its focus on “Why,” “How,” & “What” but it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge of the Model to gain the benefits of using the questionnaire.
For each of the 17 SDGs, ISO has compiled those standards that can make the greatest contributions to successful implementation, from technical solutions to organisational structures.
