The Arizona Technology Council welcomes ASQ to Tucson!
Basics: Revolution or evolution, quality professionals need to acquire knowledge, tools, and techniques for improvement and change. These presentations will prepare quality professionals to acquire the basics and stay ahead of present quality practices and tools.
Organizational Excellence/Technology/Innovation Basics: International excellence models of quality (Baldrige, EFQM and others) can help all organizations (businesses, hospitals, government, not-for-profits and schools) attain higher levels of performance. Auditing these operations from a process and product/service perspective can identify opportunities for improvement, areas of potential compliance issues, and improved effectiveness. For innovation and technology, management of the product development processes is an important competitive factor. Auditing these processes requires an understanding of program management and engineering/design –spanning initial concepts, verification and validation, process development and validation, supplier support and resource utilization. The focus of presentations on these topics would be on how quality ideas, tools, processes, etc. are tailored and used in different industries, governments, and countries and how quality methods have evolved.
Global/ Generational Challenges/Opportunities:Global considerations require understanding cultural differences and how they affect management and auditing whether in multinationals, joint ventures, or in an increasingly diverse workplace. Managers need to be aware of these in order to plan and execute effectively. Auditors need this awareness in order to plan, conduct and report their audits with the all-important human interactions and their social and cultural implications. Generational differences confront all professions as well. Changes in management and auditing will be affected by younger professionals background, experiences, and expectations.
Design and Construction Division: DCD will have a separate track with pertinent topics.
Sponsorships: Exhibitor and sponsor opportunities are available. The attendees represent a select audience of quality professionals and other interested persons.
