From the Chair

From the WCQI TPC Chair

On behalf of the WCQI Technical Program Committee, I am pleased to invite you to attend this year’s World Conference. The 2021 program is truly timely and relevant, with more than 85 sessions addressing essential role of quality for organizations, countries, companies, and people moving toward a post-pandemic world.

This year’s TPC identified a robust mix of presentations geared toward young quality professionals, experienced quality experts, and everyone in between. The committee’s selections span an array of topics as well, ensuring that attendees will gain insight into best practices and processes regarding data analysis, audits, Quality 4.0, robotics, risk, lean, Six Sigma, and effectively navigating your team, career and company in an uncertain virtual world.

And thanks to contributions from of ASQ’s Technical Communities, the WCQI 2021 agenda includes sessions from the Society’s QMD, Service Innovation, Audit, Statistics, Education and Healthcare Divisions, all of which provide forward-thinking applications for the quality professional and highlight the real-world expertise of our members.

I’m looking forward to WCQI 2021 – in addition to a meaningful educational experience I hope you’ll join me at WCQI 2021 and take advantage of an opportunity to learn, engage and celebrate our amazing quality community.

Best regards,
Shawn Armstrong
WCQI TPC Chair
