VEGA Americas‘ management takes a creative and fun approach to preparing for an ISO audit of their Quality Management System. They are a global manufacturer of level and pressure instrumentation for the process industry. VEGA’s COO John Kronenberger plays the character ISONO, who isn’t sure what to do in some audit situations like this one where simpleQuE Consultant, Don Milinkovich plays the role of auditor while Quality Manager, Gretchen Lisi, looks on. They give suggestions on their intranet on how to be an ISOPRO – a great way to communicate internally and create awareness* among their employees. Way to go team VEGA!
