Yves Chaumette

Yves Chaumette got his engineer degree from ‘Polytechnique’ (on of the most famous School in Engineering) and got as well a master degree in History and Philosophy of sciences. He worked in industry as an auditor and in the HR department of the French telecom company where he was in charge for recruiting highly qualified personnel. He managed and supervised a large number of industrial projects in France and at the international level. He is currently a professional teacher for professionals as well as for students in the areas of project management, organization, negotiation and leadership. He worked several years with international associations and supervised a large number of master theses. He designed an intuitive approach of quality based on colours, and the related software can be downloaded from his site. He is currently developing a definition of quality as the relationship between purpose and activity. This approach is particularly useful in complex and uncertain situations and for crisis handling.
