I.D ASQ Code of Ethics
Excerpt From The Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence Handbook
It is important that people in an organization know and understand the behaviors that are considered acceptable. Therefore, another critical role of leadership is to ensure that the organization has defined those behaviors and the principles behind them as clearly as possible. Documenting and communicating the values and principles that should be used as a guide for day-to-day decision making is one way employees learn what is acceptable. Another way is through observation of the actions of persons in leadership roles and others in influential or powerful positions. Therefore, it is important that a leader’s actions be congruent with the stated principles and values.
For some fields of professional practice, codes of conduct are defined by professional organizations. Following is the code of ethics for quality professionals established by the American Society for Quality (ASQ). It provides both general principles and specific actions designed to ensure that ASQ members demonstrate ethical behaviors in their relationships with the public, employers, customers and clients, and peers. The code is critical to quality decisions and behavior, and valuable when designing systems as well as in day-to-day communications.
