How the Certified Quality Manager Evolved into the Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence
As we all know, the role of quality professionals is evolving at all levels, and the role of the Quality Manager is no exception. To acknowledge this change, and to broaden the scope of the examination, the Quality Management Division surveyed current Certified Quality Managers and other recognized subject matter experts.
The survey results indicated that not only has the Body of Knowledge for Quality Managers changed, but the name of the program itself must be updated to reflect the broader scope of this position. With the approval of the ASQ Certification Board, the Certified Quality Manager program will become the new Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence (CMQ/OE), effective with the March 2006 administration.
