November Is World Quality Month — Ideas For Celebrations

Join the Global Quality Community in celebrating the 6th annual World Quality Month in November.  World Quality Month provides a platform for acknowledging the efforts and accomplishments of quality and all who work to make it happen.

By this time, your organization has likely already begun planning the special events you’d like to hold during November.  However, if you are not that far advanced, the World Quality Month Celebration Guide and the World Quality Month Toolkit (in five languages, English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Portuguese) will be a tremendous help in getting you up to speed. It includes sample banners, e-tags, postcards, sample advertisements and power point templates that can all be customized for your organization. Coming soon, a sample World Quality Month proclamation will be added to the toolkit.  Share the wealth of information included in the World Quality Month toolkit with co-workers and others.

In addition, you can find an ROI of Quality fact sheet and a collection of fun quality trivia on the site.

Ideally, you should have a team designated to work on World Quality Month within your organization, determine who will help set up and run the event or events, and have a specific person for each role. Make sure you have backup help as well.

Work with your marketing, communications, or public relations department to create a news release about World Quality Month and quality at your organization.  Prepare information about World Quality Month and any planned events for your internal newsletter and intranet and share them with the editor.  Have employees add “World Quality Month” as a skill on LinkedIn and endorse one another (see the Celebration Guide for details).

You can also encourage your team to submit any quality-themed events taking place in October and November to so they can be added to the site calendar. We also invite you to submit your quality success stories.

And remember to have fun!  In October you can also take part in a social media contest, #quality2030, and submit your idea of what quality will look like in the future, on ASQ’s Facebook page (see the complete rules on Three winners will receive a bundle of World Quality Month souvenirs.  Also, we’re offering complimentary World Quality Month magnets in October as well. Again, you can order through the site starting October 1.

Remember–the world is full of organizations dedicated to quality.  This is our month to share our passion for quality with our global colleagues and other business professionals and government leaders from around the world.  It is a time to praise all that has been accomplished so far and dream about what greatness the future may hold.
