Program Overview:

“Excerpts from the 2017 World Quality Conference”

Presented by James Treadway & Kathleen Scott – ASQ Section 209

Every year you see the email from ASQ telling you to come to the World Conference on Quality and Improvement and you wonder, “Is it worth it?” This presentation may help you make that decision.

The presenters will summarize four presentations from the 2017 conference to give you an idea of what you might encounter if you decide to attend. The presentations summarized cover a wide array of topics: risk management, customer satisfaction, time management, and organizational influence. In addition to summarizing conference presentations, the presenters will also provide information on how the conference works, how to plan your trip so you don’t miss anything, how to pick the presentations you want to see, all of the ins and outs you need to go to make your conference experience a positive one.

The “2018 World Conference on Quality and Improvement” will be held in Seattle, WA.

Common quality principles and practices apply to EVERY business and organization. Therefore, you can always learn something from one of our programs… even though the topic may be completely outside you normal discipline. Sharing information is important if the ASQ is truly going to achieve its goal of being “The Global Voice of Quality.”  Furthermore, we need YOUR thoughts and ideas related to the needs of both YOU and YOUR ORGANIZATION if we are to better meet those needs of a diverse community.
