The Cat and the bell (Aesop Fable- Daryl Guberman –CEO GUBERMAN-PMC, LLC- Adaptation) -CONCERNING BUSINESS & QUALITY

The Mice (business owners, aerospace, medical, automotive, service and other industries and quality personnel) once called a meeting to decide on a plan to free themselves of their enemy, the Cat ( ASQ-American Society for Quality) ANSI-ANAB® (American National Standards Institute/American National Accreditation Board), IAF (International Accreditation Forum), IAQG (International Aerospace Quality Group) , IATF(International Automotive Taskforce) SAE Society of Automotive Engineers) and other accreditations affiliated with each other). At least they wished to find some way of knowing when the cat was coming (for registration and surveillance audits), so they might have time to run away. Indeed, something had to be done, for they lived in such constant fear of the claws (NON VALUE ADDED SERVICES) that they hardly dared stir from their dens by night or day.

Many plans were discussed, but none of them was thought good enough. At last a very young Mouse GUBERMAN-PMC, LLC –Daryl Guberman -CEO & business partner got up and said:”WE have a plan that seems very simple, but I know it will be successful. All we have to do is to hang a bell of truth about the Cat’s neck “ Is Your Certificate Accredited? “If your certificate was issued by an ANAB-accredited certification body (CB= Registrar), the answer to this question is probably yes. An accredited (CB=registrar) may also offer unaccredited certificates or certificates for standards for which it is not accredited. What did this mean? (
When we hear the bell ringing we will know immediately that our enemy to real quality is coming and not issuing accredited certifications.”

All the Mice were much surprised that they had not thought of such a plan before. But in the midst of the rejoicing over their good fortune, an old Mouse arose and said:
“I will say that the plan of the young Mouse is very good. But let me ask one question: Who will bell the Cat? “It is one thing to say that something should be done, but quite a different matter to do it. ONLY Daryl Guberman-CEO of GUBERMAN-PMC, LLC & BUSINESS partner placed the BELL ON THE CAT…..
