ASQ's World Conference on Quality and Improvement has a 70-year tradition of educating, engaging, connecting, and inspiring leading professionals from around the globe. Each year thousands gather to share best practices, expand their network and further develop their professional growth. ASQ is now accepting proposals for the technical program of the 2017 conference and has identified the theme of next year's event to be Grow Your Influence. The theme was chosen as a way of centering on current and future business leaders and the growth they seek to better influence the work they do, organizations they work for, and lives they lead. The body of tools, techniques, and methods that aid in this is ever growing and ASQ is seeking to fill the technical program of the conference with sessions and thought leaders that best demonstrate the successes, tested solutions, and proven results these disciplines can bring.
Whether it is called quality, continuous improvement, organizational excellence or the like, ASQ is looking specifically for presentations that can integrate the conference theme with one or more of the focus areas outlined below.
