What we stand for
The name of Qinos derives from the ancient Greek word κοινοω, which can be translated as “performing together” or “communicating together”.
The Chinese phonetic translation of the company name 起挪思 (qi nuo si) picks up the same intention: “Shifting and creating meaning together”.
We believe in team work, collaboration and mutual inspiration as an incredibly enhancing factor.
On the other hand, “Q” stands for “quality”, which results, if a thorough understanding of all stakeholder needs and of the technical requirements flow into the process. Regardless, whether it is set in a highly regulated environment or still in the creative phase.
We strongly believe, clear processes and good project management are key to successfully achieve your innovation and quality project goals.
What we believe in
Different cultural backgrounds are an inspiring source for innovation. So are different world views within our own culture.
The aim of Qinos is to offer services in different domains, to act as an idea translator and propagator between different industries and fields of action, as well as between different cultural environments.
Non-profit social engagement projects are an integral part of this philosophy.
Interfaces are often the weak point of complex organizations and processes. Still, if set-up correctly, interfaces can become points of mutual inspiration and facilitation, as each side can concentrate on its core business and still profit from other experiences.
By always following the internal logics of one’s own professional culture, one becomes blind for inconsistencies and deficiencies, which would immediately be apparent, if another viewpoint was applied.
Qinos offers you this external viewpoint, enhancing the positive effects of interfaces.
Creative Chaos or ordering structure?
We believe structure is important to make complex systems and processes transparent and only then discussable for cross-functional or even inter-cultural stakeholders. However, structure should never be as rigid, as to kill further potential for innovation and continuous improvement, even in regulated environments.
Qinos offers scientifically sound and pragmatic approaches to help find this optimum between quality ensuring structure and potential for innovation.
Reliability of a process is achieved through Flow. When obstacles are one by one gently removed to give room to an overall process with clear responsibilities, evident structure and easy, pleasant collaboration.
The basis for flow is the ability to change and adapt, for improvement. That’s why flexibility is not a contradiction to reliability.
Qinos stands for reliability due to transparency and mutual trust. And the flexibility that is necessary to achieve this.
Inspiring diversity, working interfaces, transparent structure, meaning of actions and high reliability result in strong Impact.
We aim at leaving our traces in your environment. Always with a sustainable footprint.
