“ASQ’s Team Excellence provides a great opportunity for organizations to share their success stories and learn best practices from other organizations worldwide. 

At the Max Group, we have an annual recognition program called the Max Excellence Day where the best improvement projects from across our group are selected by a panel of international jury members. The panel uses the Team Excellence criteria to do this selection. As a process, we distribute ASQ's Team Excellence criteria to our Six Sigma Black Belts across the Max Group to ensure improvement projects get aligned to this criteria right through all the phases of the project. This has raised the bar of our continuous improvement program with respect to increased rigor and discipline adopted by our improvement projects.

Over the last 4 years, we are glad to have chosen ASQ Team Excellence as our preferred international platform to share, learn, and network with other co-travelers in the quality journey. Through this means we represent and engage with ASQ’s vision and mission, and help in spreading the global voice of quality across the globe.”

“Over the last 15 years I have participated in various levels of the ASQ's Team Excellence, as a competitor, judge, committee member, trainer, and training site coordinator. I have a passion for this process because of what it stands for ... the respect for people and the power of teams. This process showcases those companies who value their employees, support a system of continuous improvement, and acknowledge goal-oriented achievements. The Team Excellence Finals at the ASQ World Conference consistently bring a tremendous volume of energy and passion from the team which drives those who support this process to come back year after year.”

“The Coca-Cola quality policy states that consumers across the globe trust The Coca-Cola Company to deliver refreshing, high-quality products. Quality shows itself in our every action; it encompasses everything that we do Each person within the Coca-Cola system takes this mission seriously and works tirelessly to ensure that our system keeps its promise of quality products and services. We believe that quality is the cornerstone of our success. 

Continuous improvement and problem solving are key business priorities for Coca-Cola Iberia. ASQ’s International Team Excellence Award provides our company an excellent opportunity to show what we are doing today to meet our gold standard: ‘Perfect product, trusted everywhere.’ During the ITEA process, our team has shared and improved knowledge. The five ITEA criteria helped us tell our story from the project selection to the improvement opportunity implementation and follow-up. The passion and engagement showed by the team during the project and the results achieved with the improvement opportunity implementation are, in fact, considered a huge success for our organization.
