Towards a global cyber institute – Part 1.
By Allan J. Sayle, President Allan Sayle Associates

What service must a professional institute provide?
What are professional bodies for?
A cyber institute is at hand – if you want one

If done properly, setting up a global institute based in cyberspace will propel forward the quality profession and provide a superior service than the BAMs. Better value for money for members, employers and clients global reach and participation. It can offer truly international credentials and credibility for the members. Only a few key pieces remain to be put in place and it could be running in a matter of weeks.

It is the way to go. And the time has come to do it.

Allan J. Sayle has published numerous articles and delivered major speeches around the world in his 35 years experience. His book "Management Audits", ISBN 0951173901, now in its 3rd edition was first written in 1978 and is acknowledged as the "classic" and "definitive" text on that subject. Sayle is also acknowledged as the originator of the "Process Approach" (or "Task Element" approach) to auditing and quality programs, a method he developed in the early 1970s and which is now the de facto approach used around the world: the process approach is now at the heart of ISO 9001:2000. He is a pioneer of value-added audits. Allan Sayle's seminal work in Quality Management has influenced every practising quality professional. More information is available at his web site www.sayle.com.
