Future of Quality Study

The ASQ Future of Quality Study is a qualitative research project conducted since 1996. The 2015 ASQ Future of Quality Study is the seventh edition of this provocative glimpse of the changing landscapes that will likely impact the quality profession and risk-based decision-making process.

For the 2015 study, ASQ requested 35 quality and business professionals and futurists to determine the top five trends– or forces–that are to have the greatest impact of the culture of quality in enterprises and on the quality community. Uniquely qualified experts tackled the task of creating a 1,000–word article describing the trend and why it matters to the quality community.

This study is a valuable input to risk-based decision making, helping organizations and individuals make better, more logical choices.
