The International Academy for Quality (IAQ) is an independent, self-supported, non-profit, non-governmental organization that is administered by a collegial assembly of individuals who have been elected by their peers form among the most respected, active and experienced protagonists of quality in the world. In 2017, the 61th EOQ Congress would be a joint effort of European Organization for Quality (EOQ) and the Slovenian Quality and Excellence Association as well as IAQ in Bled, Solvenia from 11 to 12 Oct 2017. One day after the Congress, on 13th Oct 2017, the 2nd IAQ World Quality Forum was held at the same place. The theme of the 2nd IAQ World Quality Forum is “Future Impact of Quality”. I would like to summarize the forum below for sharing.
In the beginning, Mr. Janak Mehta (Chair of IAQ) gave an opening and Welcome speech in the Opening Plenary Session. He briefed the IAQ Way.
Mr. Janak Mehta mentioned we met a tremendous opportunity in big data, Industry 4.0 and IoT.
Then he shared Toyota’s Ji Kotei-Kanketsu (JKK) that everyone considered how to approach each job so as not to all rework to happen. It was the built-in Quality in process with accountability.
Finally, Mr. Janak Mehta summarized that we needed with head in the cloud and feet on the ground; and contributing to build in quality in design, production and delivery of error free products and services that customers could use with confidence through motivated and capable people.
