World Conference on Quality and Improvement
Realize Your Impact
The fourth industrial revolution is well underway, carving a digital path toward optimized, enterprise-wide data analytics, design, cloud computing, AI, machine learning, and IoT applications. The journey, however, is a long one, with only a fraction of organizations fully engaged in a Quality 4.0 initiative. For quality professionals, the opportunity to impact an organization’s digital transformation has never been greater. For organizations, the need to leverage the skills and abilities of quality teams has never been more urgent.
WCQI 2020 will inform and guide attendees in their mission to assess, increase, and leverage their expertise in the quality arena. The knowledge and insights shared at WCQI will identify how the quality professional can significantly influence transformation initiatives at the individual and enterprise level and offer the appropriate tools and strategies to affect change, increase value, and drive an organization toward its quality goal.
As organizations increasingly rely on quality practices to navigate through today’s digital challenges, it is essential for attendees to have a firm grasp upon how, when, and why to apply those fundamental tools and techniques within their own teams and organization. These sessions will emphasize quality’s nuts and bolts, such as:

This area of focus targets key facets that support a holistic quality strategy, including:
