A New Chapter
For 10 years, I’ve served as the editor of Quality Progress. And each month, I have the honor of bringing you information and knowledge that help you to be successful in your careers.
I take my role seriously, as does the entire QP staff, our dedicated reviewers and countless authors who contribute their time and expertise to shape the quality profession’s most respected, most reliable and most read monthly magazine.
This year, in fact, marks 50 years for QP. So it seems fitting during this milestone year that we unveil something special. Drum roll, please.
For the first time in 10 years, we’re debuting a new QP with a refreshed look and feel for layouts and graphics, along with reimagined departments and columns. A bit of innovating of our own for an issue that just happens to focus on the topic of innovation. A nice coincidence!
Also part of the redesign is a new column titled "Field Notes," which is devoted to helping those in a specific industry navigate an issue or problem they face.
We’ll be rolling out even more enhancements at www.qualityprogress.com later this year. But for now, we hope the new look in print reflects the energy and enthusiasm we had while developing the design over the last several months.
One more special debut worth noting: I welcomed a new family member—a baby girl who was born shortly before this issue was delivered to the printer. In my absence, Associate Editor Mark Edmund steers the QP ship, but I’ll jump back on board in mid-May.
Before then, send us your impressions of the new QP: What works? What would you like to see more of? What industries and issues should the new column "Field Notes" cover? Email your comments and suggestions to email@example.com. We know the importance of hearing from the voice of the customer.
Now, you must excuse me for the next few months: There’s a certain little customer with a particularly loud voice (well, more like a wail) who needs my utmost attention.
