Recap: ASQ’s World Conference on Quality & Improvement 2012

As we wrap up the ASQ conference here in Anaheim, CA, I’m left with an empowering sense of passion for the quality community and their sincere commitment to spreading the word and making the world a better place.   As an ASQ Influential Voice, I was fortunate enough to help spread the word throughout the conference via our social media network.  I was also fortunate enough to meet several other Influential Voices that are doing their part to “raise the voice of quality.” The conference was packed with over 100 sessions to choose from.  From “Answering Today’s CEO Challenges to Quality” …

Celebrating our engineers…

Ralph J. Smith once noted that “engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to the benefit of man.” This week is National Engineers Week, and we wanted to take an opportunity to thank all of our engineers for their commitment and dedication to both Pro QC and the quality industry in general.  When asked what separates Pro QC from competitors, it’s often our skilled and knowledgable team (in addition to our personalized service) that receives mention.

Remembering ASQ’s World Conference on Quality & Improvement

The American Society for Quality posted this to Facebook today, and I couldn’t help but reminisce my own experience at the show earlier this year.  More information from my time at the conference is noted in my blog.  The passion ASQ members have for their industries and quality, in general, was inspiring, and it makes me very proud to participate as a global voice for quality.  I’m hoping to see everyone again in Anaheim next year!
