Workshop I

Changes need leadership
What is important for me to succeed?


Lecturer: Werner Seeger, Organization- and Personal Developer, Senior Consultant WSQR SRL


Change is constantly present, and leadership is more in demand than ever in a living and valued organization. Taking responsibility, securing and promoting employees in their development as well as building trust among them are further important elements of modern leadership.

The participants of this workshop learn what is to be taken into account in a sustainable process as a manager, i.e.


  • strengthening of the perception for the environment.
  • structuring of interactions and group processes.
  • Reflecting of their own function and communication.



Workshop II

1 year IATF 16949: 2016 – Practical experiences


Lecturer: Robert Jugan-Elias, Economist, Jemacon Q-Engineering



The IATF 16949 has now been published for one year. It places new demands on the supplier industry. Organizations are therefore skeptical and insecure. At first sight it seems to be a Herculean task to implement these new demands. But is it really like that?


This workshop focuses on practical topics of the new IATF 16949. The learning transfer takes place by involving the participants by means of group exercises as well as discussions.



Workshop III

Problem Solving – Quality Tools Management and Approaching methods – Tomorrow Performances (Outputs) are reflecting by Today Actions (Inputs)


Lecturer: Adrian Iovanescu, Quality Manager



These activities contains description of a number of tools that could be valuable support to you & your organization (Ishikawa diagram, 5 why analysis, brown paper technique). The tools and approach methods help teams to work more effectively, build commitments and responsibilities (meeting plan & brainstorming, 6 hats, 3×120°, SWOT). Each tool is described clearly and simple so that you are able to use them without several training sessions. In our daily activities we know what has to be done, but the success key is how to do it; how do we link Quality tools with Management. These tools might be useful to you, mainly if you are involved in various projects or operational work, where improvements are required or expected.

Lecturer: Roland Joldis, Supplier Quality manager, INTEVA PRODUCTS Salonta SRL



Process auditing plays a critical role in the operation of an organization. Effectively implemented, operated and managed, VDA 6.3 Process Audit is an important management and support tool in helping an organization achieves its objectives. VDA 6.3 Process Audits are clearly identifying the weaknesses, risk and strengths within the audited processes and will fully fill the requirement to conduct process audits due to customer specifics and IATF 16949 in a most effective and efficient manner.


In 2016, the established audit standard VDA 6.3 (2nd edition 2010) was revised by the VDA working group and specified on the basis of experience and feedback from all the stack holders. The aim is to simplify evaluation and the alignment of the questionnaire with the new requirements.



The purpose of this workshop is to guide participants towards an efficient and effective implementation of process audit in accordance with VDA 6.3 and to highlight the differences between edition 2010 and 2016.



Technical speech

Why corporate language “makes no sense”: the ambiguity of communication and underestimation of problems.


Speaker: Andrei Vacaru, Trainer, Senior Partner at Human Performance Development Intl.


Language is the form by which we express our own desires, needs, hopes and doubts. Its application could be the easiest way to solve problems, but the way language is used is often a way of removing us from other people. Even companies are no exception to this rule.


When people use blurred words, pompous phrases and vague expressions, it is clear that nobody wants to talk about pink elephants in the middle of the room. This creates a wooden language. A form of communication, concealing the solution rather than pointing out; avoiding answers to create an official character and “chilled” relationships between people.
