Infographic: The Pulse of Global Quality

I have written quite a bit about ASQ’s Global State of Quality research in recent months. The research is a comprehensive look at quality, spanning 22 countries and containing findings from nearly 2,000 respondents. You can access the entire report here, and now you can see the top findings from the research in this infographic. As they say, a picture is worth 1,000 words. Take a look. What jumps out and surprises you?

If you’re curious about the methodology behind the research, I recommend ASQ’s latest installment of the report, Analysis, Trends, and Opportunities 2013. It’s free for ASQ members and available for a modest fee for non-members. In the future months we will offer short Spotlight reports highlighting individual topics from the research and interviews with quality leaders who explain “the why” behind the numbers.

    The 89% Standard Process statistic is encouraging! p.s. You guys need to add the Pinterest sharing icon on your blog. Infographics like this are perfect for these type of posts! I shared this on my own pinboard here: http://www.pinterest.com/loebigink/infographics/

      • Hi Julia! This highly informative infographic should be shared widely, across the world; and especially in the Engineering faculty and students at the universities. For this purpose, I highly recommend that:

        1. ASQ should publish a easily downloadable PDF copy

        2. ASQ should allow its members (like me, member # 63316595) to put it into Google Docs and share it widely.

        The idea is to make ASQ, the voice of Quality, heard across the world.
