Quality is everyone's business
people were new to quality. They had never been exposed to quality. They wanted the quality information and knowledge but weren't particularly interested in sitting for the exam. Another way to think about this startling revelation is that the ASQC definition of CQM can be applied to almost anyone in any organization. The quality profession has been successful beyond its wildest expectations. Quality professionals have been preaching the same message for years: A person or team responsible for an activity or process is truly responsible for the quality of his or her efforts. More companies realize this as they integrate ISO 9000 or QS-9000 systems into their organizations. Some organizations understand that quality is everyone's business.
Certified quality managers should obtain certification to develop their professional skills. Quality managers without a degree who are looking to get certified should have at least ten years of professional experience. Managers with a degree need to prepare for the exam by studying the body of knowledge. The exam consists of two parts, an essay response and multiple-choice, and takes about four hours to complete. IQS offers practice exams, reference lists, books, and training to help individuals prepare for the exam. It is also recommended that certified quality managers be recertified every three years to keep their skills current.
