Quality Leadership for Human & Organizational Performance

Building Excellence Through QPMO Leadership

Embracing the essence of Collaborative Management for Business Activities (CMBA), the CMBA Methodology stands as a beacon committed to enhancing Human and Organizational Performance. Rooted in the QualityPMO methodology developed by the EMARI System Thinking approach, CMBA emphasizes the integration of Business Administration and Operations Management. This innovative approach is underpinned by the belief that leadership is a shared responsibility among all individuals within an organization, transcending titles and positions.

"Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."
