Innovation 2023 Welcome
ASQ Innovation TC 2023 Chair Ms. Rebecca Mott
Welcome to 2023!
"Why did you join our innovation community?" Our immediate past chair Larry Miller asked this question in our series of December retrospective meetings for 2022. Some of the answers that were given were:
  • "To network with like-minded people about innovation."
  • "To learn more about innovation and how to support innovation at my company."
  • "To add value to the ASQ community. I have received much value over the years from my participation."
After putting so many things on pause in 2020 and 2021, it was refreshing to come together in May 2022 at WCQI. This year, I am excited that we are once again gathering in person at WCQI May 7-10 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We are planning some activities that will provide you with the opportunity to learn and connect with other innovators. Click the link below to find out more and register.

2023 World Conference on Quality and Improvement
As you know, one of our core values is constantly striving for improvement and progress, and we believe this can be achieved by introducing new ideas and technologies.
With that in mind, we are launching new initiatives to foster a culture of innovation within our community. This will involve providing resources and support for volunteers who want to explore and develop innovative projects that align with our mission and goals.

We know that many of you are already thinking creatively and coming up with new ways to make a positive impact in the innovation arena. We want to encourage and support this creativity, and we believe that by working together, we can achieve even more and spread the message of innovation far and wide.
If you are interested in learning more or participating in any 2023 initiatives, please reach out to me or any of our community leaders. We are always looking for new ideas, and enthusiastic volunteers to join us in this exciting journey. Visit our myASQ page to see a roster of our innovation leaders. Reach out to me directly - I can be found on LinkedIn or the contact information below.

Henry Ford has been quoted saying. “Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.” I am ready. What about you?

Innovation in Action Events of Note
How a WE Culture can drive Innovation
Presented by Ms. Luciana Paulise, CEO, MBA, ASQ CQE, Agile Coach and Certified Scrum Master
Friday, January 27, 2023
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Eastern
An Innovation in Action Series
Description: In the age of continuous evolution, especially after Covid-19, leaders need to learn new skills to drive innovation more organically. Before the pandemic, most leaders were expected to be in charge. Suddenly, the shift to a remote workforce and a more volatile environment posed tremendous challenges for them. Command and control practices that promote a “me” culture are no longer as effective. Only a WE culture can help leaders and team members thrive in a changing environment. Through changing certain patterns and behaviors at work, leaders will find new ways to care for their people while improving innovation and quality. With practical examples from real companies, attendees will learn simple tips today to apply at work on Monday.

Innovation Through the Lens of Quality 4.0
Presented by Dr. Kai Yang
Monday, March 20, 2023
7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Eastern
An Innovation in Action Series
Description: Historically, every industrial revolution had a profound impact on the management sciences and practices, including quality management. Our current quality management system is rooted in the 2nd industrial revolution featured by mass production system and its main aim is to control and reduce defects and hasn’t fundamentally changed for at least 40 years. Currently the 4th industrial revolution, featured by digital connectivity, AI, big data, is well under way, there have been vast changes in our customers behavior, business processes and social interactions. There is overwhelming evidence that a revolution in our current quality management system is long overdue, and this is what Quality 4.0 is all about. In quality 4.0, there are new frameworks and paradigms for quality, customer value creation and innovation are taking the center stage. In this webinar, I will go through some of the key points and new framework in quality 4.0 and show how quality 4.0 methods can help innovation and customer value creation.
