2021 Quality Management and Software Divisions’ Joint Virtual Conference

September 21 – 23, 2021 l Virtual Conference

Where Quality Basics Meet Culture as Work Changes


Sponsored by Quality Management and Software Divisions

Theme

Connecting the leaders of today with the leaders of tomorrow to facilitate knowledge transfer and authentic learning experiences.


Quality Basics

Core elements of quality planning, quality control, and quality improvement. The building blocks that have been proven to work over the decades. Quality practitioners need to know these skills and how to apply them in pursuit of organizational goals.
 

Building a Supportive Quality Work Culture

The soft skills that managers in quality need to know and use to ensure organizational development in our very human work environments. Technically skilled professionals often find softer skills a challenge to master, but essential to success.
 

Quality in an Altered Work Environment

The constancy of change as we maintain standards of quality creates a challenge. Our work lives have been disrupted by the forces around us, and we are all adapting to the current environment. Besides our current situation, we are also trying to adapt to what we think may be our future work environment.
