Quality Management

Quality Management at HFT Stuttgart

Quality management (QM) is a high priority at HFT Stuttgart and helps us work effectively and efficiently.

Our goal

The goal of the QM system set up at HFT Stuttgart is to optimize processes and content in the fields of education, administration and research. To paraphrase the German author Erich Kästner: Some people use their intellect to simplify things – others to make them more complex. We aim to simplify and optimize both processes and content. Our QM activities are modelled on the PDCA cycle (Plan-Do-Check-Act) and aim to include all stakeholders in the establishment of a tailored QM system for the university.

Our stakeholders

The key stakeholders in our QM system are members of HFT Stuttgart, our students’ future employers, the general public and our partners. The Magic Target Square provides an overview of our stakeholders and core objectives.

Our approach

As a university we always aim to fulfil our educational mandate to the highest quality. The modern educational environment is extremely dynamic, and we therefore continuously improve all our processes and content. The growing complexity of the tasks we face requires us to streamline workflows and avoid doing the same work twice – and our slim QM system is designed to help us achieve this. Transparency is one of the key factors in the success of our QM system.
