Buoyed by the various disruption in the way business leaders operate their organizations and fuelled by the pragmatic approaches in achieving strategic objectives, leading and managing across fast-changing and highly intelligent customers with divergent demands necessitates a more rapid, agile way in adapting to its environment than ever before. This pushes organizations across economies of the world to develop highly flexible business models that generate high impact results, challenging the traditional schools of thought.
Digitalization. Artificial intelligence (AI). Robotic process automation (RPA). Augmented reality. Internet of things (IoT). These are some of the buzzwords revolving around the quality realm that continuously post threats and opportunities. In the prediction released by Gartner in 2016, “by 2018, more than 3 million workers will be supervised by a ‘robo-boss’” and “45% of the fastest growing companies will have fewer employees than instances of smart machines.” How can organizations thrive in these constantly changing conditions? How can they foster quality and process transformation through digitalization, taking into account that most of the business problems are still solved through the traditional kaizen, lean, six sigma, and the like?
In response to this challenge, the Philippine Society for Quality, Inc. (PSQ), the Asia Pacific Quality Organization (APQO) and the Global Benchmarking Network (GBN) are presenting this year’s International Quality Conference, with its theme “Quality Transformation in the Digital World.” We are bringing with you sought-after Quality leaders and experts from around the globe, highlighting successful case studies, insightful application of the new methodologies and techniques, interactive discussion groups and topical workshops. These learning contents were strategically and properly selected so that delegates can gain more takeaways that can be clearly operationalized in their business landscape.
This is truly an opportunity you cannot miss if you want to take a leap into the future with your strategy and execution. We look forward to meeting you in this exciting event in October 2017!
