Intelex’s EHSQ Alliance finds its trailblazer

Rob Harrison, Director of EHSQ Content Strategy

Among the greatest challenges in today’s digital information age is simply sorting through the morass of all things posted online to uncover what’s truly useful and valuable. You need to dig far and deep to get to the gold, especially when it comes to high-quality and trusted information.

Discovery of useful insights online is tough enough for everyday consumers. For professionals – and specifically those in the field of managing environment, health and safety, plus quality (EHSQ) regulatory compliance – it can be a world of pain. There’s never enough useful information to assist them in doing their jobs. EHSQ knowledge is always in demand, yet so hard to find.

It’s this vital need that’s behind the creation of the EHSQ Alliance, powered by Intelex Technologies – an evolving vision to construct a one-stop repository of great insights and knowledge for professionals, and … Read more...

In Business, It’s All About Your Ideas, Intelex CEO Tells Students

Businesses succeed or fail on the quality of their ideas, not on the fanciness of the way those ideas are conveyed to management and other decision-makers.

That was just one piece of advice Intelex CEO Mark Jaine conveyed to students enrolled in a Management Consulting practicum at Toronto’s prestigious Rotman School of Management earlier this month. The two-week program is designed to give students real-world experience in providing consulting advice to a company.

“We have a saying at Intelex: It’s great ideas that win. It’s not about the presentation. I don’t care how glossy your binder is. It’s the substance that matters,” Jaine said.

An entrepreneur himself, Jaine was more than happy to spend time with a group of students embarking on their own business careers. And having a successful Canadian CEO in front of them for a few hours was a big benefit to the students, instructor Scott Rutherford … Read more...

6 Reasons Why Quality Professionals Support Integrated Management Systems

On February 8, 2017, I delivered a presentation to 138 attendees on Integrated Management Systems (IMS) at the monthly ASQ Toronto section meeting. To learn more about IMS, read The Case for EHSQ Integrated Management Systems. The audience consisted of a broad range of experts including CQEs, CQAs, CQIAs, CSSGB, CSSBB, management consultants, auditors, among others.

As part of the introduction, I asked the audience how many people have either heard about or were already familiar with Integrated Management Systems and I’d say about 40% of the audience raised their hands – which is a good sign! I was actually only expecting about 10 to 20 people to raise their hands. This definitely demonstrates that Integrated Management Systems is of interest to quality management professionals.  The concept of an IMS becomes even more important because of the harmonization of standards due to the recent changes in ISO 9001:2015, ISO … Read more...

The Right Chart for the Right Time

One of the biggest challenges for all professionals, including those in EHSQ, is determining the best way to leverage data to support your decisions and ideas. Data is the driving force behind most business decisions today, and it’s imperative that we all be able to use it to strengthen rather than confuse our positions.

Data visualizations are a great way to turn confusing data into consumable information.

But how do you know if you’ve picked the right EHSQ charts for your report? How effective are your dashboards? Follow these three simple rules and improve the impact of your data visualization:

  1. Pick the right chart orientation
  2. Match your visualization to your message
  3. Style your visualization appropriately
