ASQ’s just-released Global State of Quality research gives a comprehensive look at the quality function in organizations around the world. The research is certainly helping us plan for the future by uncovering current trends. Look for a more in-depth post on The Global State of Quality later in May.
This research spans 22 countries and contains findings from nearly 2,000 companies. The release was made at ASQ’s 2013 World Conference on Quality and Improvement in Indianapolis, Indiana. It’s often said that good research creates more questions than it answers, and that’s true of the Global State of Quality.
The good news is that Discoveries 2013 is the first of three reports on the findings from the research. We spent the week in Indianapolis gathering insights from executives and practitioners. These insights will help inform future reports of the research. Take a look. We welcome your insights. What finding is the most useful to your work? What finding is the most surprising? What question would you most like to have answered?
