Have fun getting involved with World Quality Month


World Quality Month continues to gain presence, with this year being the most talked about yet IMO.  I’m excited…

ASQ has done a great job of creating a site to recognize the month.  I absolutely love the flowchart for a life management cycle!  I’m actually still making my way through all of the videos and resources.  Good stuff.

There are also various ASQ promotions going on throughout the month that highlight quality’s “lighter side,” which I advocate for in order to successfully expand reach within the industry.

It’s fun to get involved (via ASQ):

  • Submit a photo of an item that has lasted for a long time (like a car or appliance) as part of the #qualitylasts contest on Twitter.  You could win a Canon digital camera. Use hashtags #qualitylasts and #wqm13.
  • A lot of quality folks like the Quality Quotes from ASQ’s Knowledge Center. In November, look for a “quality quote” generator in QP, ASQ’s flagship magazine.
  • Any time you make something better—that’s a quality moment. Submit your #qualitymoments on ASQ’s Facebook or Twitter now through November.
  • LinkedIn users can add “World Quality Month” as a skill on LinkedIn and encourage endorsements.

I submitted two photos to #qualitylasts that can be found on my Twitter profile.  Big smile when I saw that someone else posted a pic of a Subaru. That was a good one!

I’ve recently added a page of Quality Quotes to the Pro QC blog.  You can never have enough quotes!  Here’s one right from the latest View from the Q:

“November is the fourth annual World Quality Month, a celebration of quality, its impact on the world, and quality practitioners whose knowledge, experience, and passion make improved quality available for anyone who asks.”

I’m excited for our next local ASQ meeting.  We’re planning recognition and raffles and are encouraging members to bring a guest!

Counting down…
