Problem Solving Approaches and Quality Control Circles -- Adeel Syed
ASQ Hamilton Webinar -- Problem Solving Approaches and Quality Control Circles
There are multiple approaches, which organizations adopt to solve their day-to-day problems. The key is to select the right approach and tools based on the nature and criticality of the problems. When it comes to chronic issues/problems and innovative solutions, one of the best approaches is a team-based problem-solving tool known as “Quality Control Circle (QCC)”. This tool helps organizations involve their employees in continuously striving for improvement in their work. QCC usually functions as an integral part of Total Quality Management (TQM). The quality of this tool is that it is not limited to some specific industries or culture, but it is applicable anywhere because it invokes universal values.
In this presentation, Adeel will give you insights as to how organizations can take steps to adopt and implement “Quality Control Circles” and effectively involve their employees from all levels in saving cost and resolving the chronic functional and shop floor issues.
