We believe every organization, like an individual is a unique entity with its own history, culture and belief system. We strive to provide tools that will add value for your organization whatever that history, culture or belief system is.

We want to provide tools that can be used to make lives better and work more meaningful. We want to share our ideas and start conversations beyond simply quality management or management systems. Our passion is thinking about how we think. How we can all improve by thinking better.

Thinking systemically and critically can allow anyone to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve. There is no limit to how much anyone can improve their thinking. The more we learn, the more we realize how little we know. We believe that by learning and practicing better ways of thinking whether for work or leisure, education or professional development, organizations can be smarter and individual lives can be more fulfilling. Think smarter. Live better.

Our team has over 50 years of quality management experience. This includes over 25 years auditing, consulting on and teaching management systems and implementing them around the world in many industries. Our ISO Guides and Process Audit Toolkit along with our Free Audit Resources have been designed to help you help your organization understand and improve its processes. We want them to be practical and valuable.

About Pat Ambrose and His Team

Pat is the founder of SystemsThinking.Works. He is supported by a small team with many years of experience in quality management, project management, and six sigma in several industries including automotive, healthcare, consumer goods, government and energy.

Pat wants to share not only ideas from his experiences in quality, auditing and management systems, but also what he’s most passionate about – critical thinking and systems thinking and how these can be applied to make organizations effective. It’s not just about getting ISO certification. It’s about thinking critically about what an organization needs and what the people responsible for making that happen need in order to make it happen.

As a semi-retired grandfather of seven, SystemsThinking.Works is Pat’s way of putting everything he’s learned and experienced together in one place. It is there for the taking. Learn what you can and what you want. The outcomes from what you learn are up to you.
