ASQ Canada Conference – September 25 & 26, 2017
Quality is a belief system, like any other, that needs to be challenged. We are all conditioned to think in terms of time, cost, and quality to realize objectives or profit. So why isn’t this business model working? How much more can be brought into scope? Sustainability has been part of this model, but improvements are necessary.
The challenge is to open up the discussion. Is there a place for indigenous core beliefs related to respect for the land, water, life and community in a renewed business model?
Companies struggle with integrating Social Accountability into their day-to-day operations. Past efforts at redefining organizational excellence have led to head counts and green washing. We are asking students to question the standard business model and search for a better way toward continuous improvement and innovation that integrates Social accountability, inclusion and sustainability. We are looking for the application of a renewed and more holistic business model to all or any one of the aspects of an organization, from planning and product design through the supply chain to client delivery and aftercare.
