Course Description


This GLOMACS Strategic Quality Management training course will give you the basis to help put Quality Management at the center of your organization’s strategy. They may not yet fully recognize it, but Quality is a key-value identification factor for every company. Whether they like it or not, the quality of an organization’s work will affect its reputation and make it or break it. Strategic Quality Management is now a recognized business discipline globally with postgraduate courses and considerable management interest. However, today, not all organisations currently take a fully strategic view of the role of Quality Management in their resilience and growth, so the potential is enormous.

More than a focus on Quality Control, Quality Assurance or even Quality Improvement, Strategic Quality Management reflects Edwards Deming’s passionate belief that effective Quality Management is essential to organizational survival and growth and that, for that to happen, it has got to start and remain core at the top of the organisation. It has got to be made strategic. In this course we explain how this can be done and help delegates to understand and develop effective approaches to ensuring that it takes its rightful place.
