Three questions for Ignace Jeannerat, assistant editor and secretary general of the Swiss newspaper “Le Temps”
RadioFr - Fribourg/Freiburg, Switzerland. Pioneer in quality management
“Radio Fr decided to implement a quality management system in 2007. We benefit by Certimedia experience to assist us in this implementation. Rather sceptical at the beginning about this approach, being quite satisfied with the functioning of our institution and fearing a work overload linked to the implementation of such a system, we quickly realized on the contrary that the implementation of a quality management system could open new perspectives in terms of rationalization and effectiveness. From sceptical we became enthusiastic and all the staff involved in the process is really glad to start soon the levelling phase of the project. The first step consisting in a gap analysis allowed us to discover some lacks in the global management of our company and to learn about the way to react efficiently to non-obvious situations. This has been done even before starting the writing of necessary standard operating procedures. The compliance building process will continue in 2008 and we are proud today to be pioneers in the audiovisual landscape of the French speaking part of Switzerland (even for the whole Switzerland) in terms of implementation of a quality management system. We are also happy to benefit by Certimedia unique experience. We therefore recommend to any media company willing to improve its performance and efficiency to go for the implementation of an ISAS BC 9001 quality management system.”

The successful implementation of Quality management at Canal Once, culture and education number one channel in Mexico
With 750 employees and 5000 hours of production per year, Canal 11 is the first channel of public television of Mexico.
"Today Canal Once is viewing Quality management with enthusiasm. Our experience is an incentive to go further. What is important is not so much getting the conformity certificate, but implementing a system that works and matures. Therefore we have to steadily test and challenge it – including through internal audits that might be stricter than the external ones taking place twice a year. Enthusiasm should not decrease once the certificate is granted. There are always new challenges to address and objectives to reach.
"Certification is the start of a permanent process of internal organizational self-evaluation. To become certified is to join the culture through a process and to strengthen our teamwork. It is a tool to generate trust, a letter of introduction and a way to say to our clients that we are part of a nation that seeks efficiency and wants to offer the best of public television to our television audience, our sponsors, and our contractors. It is the challenge of continuous improvement."
