World Quality Month is celebrated in November around the world. American Society for Quality and other international Quality organizations publish guidelines proposing themes and ideas to arrange and manage events during this month for the industry and organizations.
This is an opportunity for everyone including the Individual Professionals, Organizations, Communities and Societies to refresh and revive their commitment to Quality and Excellence.
One of the great traditions is to commemorate the contribution of Global Quality Gurus who inspired the world through their Quality Philosophies and created numerous success stories by applying the same in the workplace.
