Grands Prix Québecois de la Qualité

Jérémie Farret, Senior Enterprise Architect and new team member, has been contributing to the Grands Prix Québecois de la Qualité as an evaluator since year 2012. As such, he will represent Negotium at the Meilleures Pratiques d’Affaires (MPA) trade show on November 10. Also, he will participate from noon to 2pm as an invited guest to the 2016 Awards Ceremony for Grands Prix Québécois de la Qualité with Ms. Dominique Anglade, Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation and Minister responsible for the Digital Strategy and Ms. Lise Thériault, Deputy Prime Minister of Quebec and the winning organizations.

The Grands Prix Québecois de la Qualité (GPQQ) are the highest award given annually by the Government of Quebec to private companies and public agencies which distinguish themselves through quality management and overall performance. The Mouvement Québecois de la Qualité (MQQ) was mandated by the Government of Quebec to manage the Grand Prix jointly with the Department of economy, Science and Innovation.

The Awards recognize private companies and public agencies efforts in their quest for excellence. All these organizations share the application of quality management principles and best business practices deployment in all their functions and at all their management levels.

The Grand Prix Québecois de la Qualité are awarded at the Montreal Congress Palace, during the Meilleures Pratiques d’Affaires tradeshow. They  are comparable, in terms of rigor and methods, to other internationally recognized prizes such as the Deming in Japan, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in  the United States or the European Quality Award.

Vincent Biret talks about his MSP experience

On November 24, 2015, Vincent Biret participated as MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) to a feedback for MSPs. 

What is a MSP? A MSP is a Microsoft Student Partner. They are students passionate about technology who wish to develop skills, manage communities and collaborate with professionals. These students are part of the Microsoft MSP program and have the opportunity to participate in events of all kinds throughout the year and also meet professionals.

This is the case of Vincent Biret, our SharePoint MVP. He began his career at Microsoft as MSP between 2010 and 2013 and then became MVP in 2014.

During this feedback organized for the MSP from Montreal, local former MSP that became MVP as Vincent could introduce the MVP program which is a logical continuation. They also shared their careers and how to make the right choices out of school. This program means a lot to Vincent who, as a former MSP, was able to provide a retrospective on what the program has brought to him and what students can learn.
