For the fifth year in a row, Bsquared have been invited to attend the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) General Assembly Forum, 20th - 24th April in Phoenix, Arizona. The forum brings together representatives of the aerospace community from across the globe. The purpose of the IAQG is to implement initiatives that make significant improvements in quality and reductions in cost throughout the value stream, thereby improving the performance of the organisation.

This year, Bsquared are delighted to be able to support the event with their strategic partner, E.G. Insight, based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Bsquared and E.G. Insight, specialists in business-to-business (B2B) customer relationships, are one of only nine companies featured in the Performance Excellence Marketplace (PEM). The PEM showcases companies recognised as making a best practice contribution to the aerospace and defence industry.

Such companies as BAE Systems, the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS), Eaton, Henkel, and the Defence Support Group (DSG) have been demonstrating their focus on the customer and drive for improvement by implementing the internationally proven Customer Review process (CRp®) methodology.

For the first time, E.G. Insight Managing Partner Gary Gerds will be joining Rob Brickle at the IAQG event. E.G. Insight helps Global 1000 companies design and implement customer feedback processes and drive positive change through the voice of the customer. Their clients include an array of industrial manufacturers, including multiple clients in the aerospace industry.

Rob Brickle, Managing Director of Bsquared, said, “We’re immensely pleased and flattered to be invited back to the IAQG General Assembly. Working with the aerospace and defence industry for many years now, we’ve seen a big shift in the focus on the customer as the most important driver of change in these companies. The IAQG has a mission to improve customer satisfaction and relationships through on-time and on-quality delivery of products and services. Our message to delegates will be that listening to the customer effectively is the first mission-critical step in the process. It is also particularly important for us to be here with our partners E.G. Insight. This provides a unique opportunity for the IAQG attendees and truly demonstrates our global footprint and presence in the aerospace and defence industry.”

Gerds commented, “I’m thrilled to be a part of this event with our partners at Bsquared. It’s an opportunity for us to learn more about the key issues for global players in the aerospace industry. We can also share some of the things we’ve learned from the feedback we’ve gotten from our clients. The market forces are constantly shifting, so it’s critical that industry leaders have structured processes in place to listen to their customers. Building our worldwide footprint with Bsquared is also important because it gives us even more reach and the ability to serve even the largest organisations in the aerospace and defence industries.”

Brickle continues, “The key to durable relationships, loyalty, and profitable growth is to inspire high levels of confidence with the most influential people in your most important customers. If they’re confident that you understand their issues and have a business improvement programme in place that delivers for them over the long term, then they will be easier to do business with, stay loyal, and be closed to competitors’ advances. Achieving this requires a process suitable for senior people with strategic issues. CRp methods have been proven to work, and we’re looking forward to showcasing it to more IAQG members in the future.”
