HELLO AND WELCOME
TO THE STEP BY STEP
GUIDE TO HOSTING
YOUR VERY OWN EVENT
ON WORLD QUALITY DAY.
World Quality Day is a day when organisations across the globe come together to celebrate the value of quality. Established in 1990 by the UN, it was created to increase worldwide awareness of the important contribution that quality makes to national and organisational growth and prosperity.
Every year the Chartered Quality Institute develops a World Quality Day theme around critical issues facing business. This year the theme is “Making Collaboration Count”, designed to highlight how colleagues, organisations and supply chains collaborate to ensure success.
In 2013, World Quality Day falls on 14 November, with week-long celebrations around the world running from 11–15 November.
World Quality Day is the highlight of the quality calendar. It is your opportunity to raise awareness of quality management and the vital role it plays in creating and maintaining successful organisations.
So often, at the CQI, quality professionals tell us that their senior leaders and colleagues don’t really ‘get’ quality or prioritise it highly enough. World Quality Day is your chance to change this and get your colleagues and senior managers involved.
There are plenty of things you can do to celebrate World Quality Day, from hosting seminars and workshops to creating a quality quiz or competition.
Last year EDF shared quality management videos on its intranet, Sellafield held a full day of seminars and talks, featuring a key note from double Olympic Gold medallist, Dame Kelly Holmes, EEF teamed up with the local CQI branch to host an evening networking event on quality in the engineering sector and plenty more.
The CQI has a number of resources to help you get started, including posters, videos and topics for talks, so that no matter how big or small you can still help spread the quality message.
