Quint Asia First to Deliver APMG’s AQRO® Training & Certification

Press Release

AQRO®KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, September 25, 2015 – Quint Wellington Redwood Asia is delighted to announce the appointment by APMG International as the first Accredited Training Organization (ATO) in Asia to deliver the HR best practice certification - AQRO® (Active Qualified Human Resource Organization) Foundation. AQRO® HRM Stress-Free Efficiency reduces unplanned interruptions – the main cause of working inefficiently. By intelligently structuring a department’s activities, organizations can foster stress-free and efficient human resource management.

“Imagine daily interruptions to your work such as phone calls, emails, colleagues and client, resulting your to-do-list tasks piling. With working trends becoming more challenging and rapid communications, organizations, teams and individuals struggles to keep up with work priorities. AQRO® is a powerful and unique methodology that will benefit the entire organization, from the managers to team leaders and staff throughout their daily business activities. AQRO® will streamline many processes, increase efficiency and reduce stress”, said Jeffrey Doss, Regional Director of Quint Wellington Redwood Asia.

In many organizations, resources often have to assume multiple roles while keeping up with varying demands. This leads to unplanned interruptions and a stressful environment where productivity suffers.

AQRO® aims to improve organizational efficiency by introducing clear structures, role transparency and governance by shifting from a line organization to a project organization – where resources exclusively assume defined roles within a specified timeframe to deliver quality results.
It is estimated that an organization will achieve an efficiency increase of 1.5 hours per day per worker through the AQRO® methodology.
A company’s IT department today or potentially any other department can be difficult to control – as well as for you as divisional supervisor or for management. The role of AQRO® in this scenario is to substantially reduce the company’s risk of poor performance and failure, main focus is shifted from line organization to project organization.

The working time efficiencies gained through AQRO® can be used effectively to:

  • Reduce or avoid employee overtime;
  • Increase the quality of work performance;
  • Start new projects or invest in new business opportunities that were previously delayed due to lack of time.

The AQRO® Foundation certification course is a 3-day instructor--led-training delivered by Quint’s full time trainers who are accredited by APMG International. At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand and apply AQRO® concepts in order to define and implement clear structures, increase and optimize efficiency, and significantly improve resource planning transparency. This course also provides integration with other process based methodologies such as COBIT®, AgilePM®, PRINCE2® and ITIL®.

“Certification is vital in any professional skills training as this is the key factor to ensure the candidate has benefited from the training he/she has attended. This is also used as a benchmark for staff performance, promotion and hiring. However, there are no certification available for any soft skills training until AQRO®. Quint embraces AQRO® Foundation positively as it aligns to our portfolio in the area of process improvement, governance and project management”, said Jean Yong, the Director of Education for Quint Wellington Redwood Asia.
