Continuous Improvement Management - CIT Program
In pursuit of strengthening the process of total quality management, Cambuci deploys from 2003 on, in Bahia´s unit, the Continuous Improvement Teams program (QCC - Quality Control Circles).
After ripening, the program was implemented in other units: Clothing and Socks in 2004 and Footwear in 2005.
With the adoption of practices for the dimensions of total quality (morality, security, attendance, environment, quality and cost), there arises the need to strengthen it even more with the inclusion of evaluation systems, recognition and participation in internal and external events that lead and stimulate the exchange of experience, continuous improvement and training of involved employee.
Participation of teams in external events (Interdisciplinary Seminar of Facsul – Faculdades do Sul da Bahia) about Sustainable Consumption together with PETI – Program for the eradication of child labor.

Total values for the Program Management, considering the cost of meetings, recognition and events in all units that have continuous improvement teams.
On average 60% of completed projects have won with a focus on dimensions of morality, security and environment (intangible gains). Today the practice of continuous improvement have been a source of organizational growth, mainly those focused on environmental awareness, distributed by the continuous improvement teams with the exhibition of their projects through lectures, seminars and internal exhibits as well as external events.
