2020 Year in Review - Thoughts & Thanks
We all agree 2020 has been a unique year.  I thought it would be fun for people to share a few thoughts on something they learned or tried and give thanks for a couple of things as well.  So here it goes...
  • Thoughts - We can work remotely and get the job done!  Working from home has its own set of challenges.  Keeping teams engaged, creating quality work, and fostering a culture of quality takes creativity and perseverance.  I have learned more about myASQ, remote auditing techniques, and virtual meetings.
  • Thanks - I am thankful for the diverse talents and passions of my colleagues.  It takes all of us to make it happen.  I am also thankful for the blessings of life and grace shown me throughout the year.
Please share your thoughts and thanks.  I would love to hear from you!

Tim:  So true! Giving thanks that both my personal and work families are safe and free from Covid, keeps the negative thinking at bay!
Gratitude for my Clients who kept our GXP Audit Consultant work going with pivots to remote Auditing throughout the last 7 months or so.
Hello Timothy and Rosemarie,

2020 has been a paradigm shift in the way we conduct business due to Covid 19.
Internet bandwidth is more important than catching up with air flight schedules in 2019 or earlier.

Working from home (WFH) is the new normal for me whether it is performing remote QMS audits and/or fulfilling/ delivering academic projects using Skype or WebEx.
The biggest boon for all the stakeholders in the process is putting the best foot forward to make the transition work.

Thanks very much.

Thoughts: I didn't know that we could all be so productive working from home; technology has evolved so much to support this.  Love that we have gone so paperless - I rarely print/mail anything these days. 

Thanks: I am very thankful for getting a great job during the COVID-19 pandemic.  I am also so thankful that my family are all healthy and doing relatively well.
