Thriving in Disruption
To achieve excellence through quality is to embrace the future of quality. It is paramount that quality professionals help their organizations make the vital connection between quality excellence and their ability to thrive in disruption. ASQ’s Quality 4.0 Summit will act as the catalyst for professionals, helping them understand how quality will enable transformation and growth.
The top organizational competency necessary for sustainability in the new digital age is the learnability of its human capital. ASQ’s original research study, done in conjunction with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and German Quality Association (DGQ), illustrates the need for quality professionals to grow their capabilities in data analyzing. Learn how to prepare the staff you have and understand when to acquire new resources. Understand that the role of the quality professional will be upgraded from enforcer to navigator—in this age it will be essential for organizations to optimize their quality professionals and abilities. Quality professionals must understand the need to speak the digital language.
As more work is automated the need for flawless processes remains the same, if not more important. Existing processes will be broken and the need to educate the next generation of workers to implement new processes and strategies will be vital to not only the quality professional but also business operations. Quality is a vital link and should be included at the strategic level for sustainability.
