Strategic Quality Planning


It is not easy to define quality. The most progressive view of quality is that the customer or receiver of the product or service defines it. So quality management must be able to map and understand all the touch points and experiences that the customer has with your product or service and optimize the customer’s experience at each point, or at the very least, meet customer expectations. An effective quality management system begins with a thorough process for planning. It will help you to benchmark your organization against its key competitors and develop effective quality processes and tools unique for your situation. It will tie to key business performance indicators to measure its impact and align with your organization’s overall strategic plan. This learning program focuses on the creation of a Strategic Quality Plan; starting with creation of a Quality Vision and translating that vision into a series of strategies.
