November marked the beginning of World Quality Month and from November 7 – 11 we celebrated World Quality Week. World Quality is an annual campaign led by the Chartered Quality Institute (CQI). This year’s theme was “Quality Conscience: Doing the Right Thing.”  

World Quality Week provides an opportunity for businesses from all industries to celebrate quality awareness and give thanks to the quality champions across their enterprises.  

It’s also an opportunity to pause and reflect on the impact of company culture. Nurturing a culture of quality greatly impacts decision-making, allowing everyone across the organization to tap into their quality conscience.  

This week you’ve heard from Sparta’s President and CEO, Oxana K. Pickeral, who gave us her thoughts on quality.
