The year 2001 may have come and gone without mankind venturing throughout the solar system, but the world of quality management has undoubtedly taken off.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Intelex is pleased to announce a unique online presentation that will get to the often elusive heart of quality management and quality standards. This exclusive event, 9001: A Quality Odyssey, will get back to the roots of quality management and revisit why quality management standards arose in the first place and the fundamental benefits they present in contemporary business.
Though the title of the webinar references ISO 9001, the ubiquitous quality management standard that pervades businesses within every industry, the presentation will tackle broader concepts in quality management, as well as the very reason it emerged in the first place and why it is still resonant today.
“The year 2001 may have come and gone without mankind venturing throughout the solar system as in Stanley Kubrick's classic film, but the world of quality management has undoubtedly taken off,” notes Paul Leavoy, an Intelex content specialist who studies quality. “This exclusive presentation will look at how quality standards have exploded in the last century, why they have meaning, and their essential role in business today.”
Geared towards anyone interested in how quality evolved and why it is important in the 21st century – not to mention the criticisms quality standards like ISO 9001 have faced in the past quarter century – this presentation will look at:
- How the modern concept of quality management arose and why it is important today from a business perspective.
- Why we have quality management and how it fits into organizational performance, supply chain management, and the global economy at large.
- The business benefits and ROI of quality management and ISO 9001-certification, and more.
Interested parties are encouraged to register now for this free 30-minute webinar slated to begin at 3 p.m. EST on Thursday, August 26.
