Focus Areas

Quality Foundations

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:

  • What every quality professional must know (concepts, team basics, roles and responsibilities)
  • Essential tools and terms (fishbone, Pareto, lean, Six Sigma, continuous improvement)
  • Quality systems in use (Baldrige criteria, case studies)

    Beyond Technical: Driving Quality Through Soft Skills

    Without soft skills in the mix, most organizations never fully realize their potential as a quality-driven entity. A Quality 4.0 initiative supported only by technology and process will face immediate and significant implementation barriers as teams struggle with unclear objectives, lack of teamwork/leadership, and gaps in skills required for the scope of transformative work. This area of focus targets key facets that support a holistic quality strategy, including:

  • Optimizing communication
  • Leadership and engagement strategies
  • Skill gaps and upskilling
  • Team functionality
  • Change management
  • Behavior-based quality
  • Problem solving
  • Human factors

  • Sustaining Innovation

    What does it take to establish and maintain a culture of continual improvement? This set of sessions explores the tools and strategies needed to create and support an everlasting commitment to quality processes—and prepare for the next disruption. Topics include:

  • New applications in lean, Six Sigma, ISO, and Quality 4.0
  • Mapping an organization’s route to quality
  • Integrating the latest innovations and technologies into current processes
  • Identifying and overcoming data barrier
  • Knowledge management
  • Program
