Quality control must oc¬cur in every step of a project, not just as an inspec¬tion at the end of the deliv¬erable preparation process. During each project, we apply continuous attention to quality control by: (1) preparing frequent interim deliv¬erables, such as draft working pa¬pers, to identify and resolve any quality issues as early as possible; (2) establishing data quality objec¬tives for each task that requires collection of data, to ensure that we have a baseline against which we measure actual research findings; (3) docu¬menting all research findings; (4) performing systematic peer reviews; (5) docu¬menting all interim and final findings and recommendations; (6) soliciting continual client feedback; and (7) applying the highest standards of editorial quality control for all written deliverables.

In collaboration with the client we determine a suitable day in the week, where we provide a status report of the activities on the project during the past week. The regularly scheduled meetings allow us to consistently focus on the needs of each client and provide a pattern that supports on-going attention to all projects.
