Benchmarking the Global State of Quality

ASQ Global State of Quality

ASQ partnered with APQC to collect and study data on the global state of quality. The goal was to provide an initial view and regular updates to help organizations compare quality and continuous improvement advancements to each other, their regions, and their economic sectors.

In 2016, ASQ and APQC conducted the second iteration of the Global State of Quality Research. It provides an analysis of almost 1,700 organizations and addresses topics including customer influence, industry standards trends, training systems, and governance standards.
