In this episode of The Engineering Quality Control podcast, we continue with the 5-Part Framework for Quality Control and focus on the fourth part of this framework, which is known as Action.
Here Are Some Key Points Discussed in This Episode About Taking Action:
Review of the Past 3 Episodes:
- Gather is more than likely second nature for many experienced professionals. This phase emphasizes determining the expectations for the deliverables.
- Federal, State, and Local Regulations
- Client Expectations
- Firm Standards
- Engineering and Architectural Principles
- The action phase is to address comments, fix technical errors, and make sure all the information is correct to the best of your ability.
- Address the questions and add information to the supplemental plans to produce the best solution to the problem and the client. It must be clear and concise for whoever the end-user will be.
- Continue to repeat the review, evaluation, and action phases for as long as needed so that you can produce the best-finished product.
- The last step of the action phase is to deliver the deliverable.
3 Points of Appreciation:
- “Appreciate the effort behind the ask” (TikTok Video by Timm Chiusano)
- Appreciate the significance that each staff member brings to the team and the relationship you can grow with them.
- Appreciate the value the finished deliverable brings to the table, to your client, to our industry, and the world.
