By Dieter Eckstein, CQM/OE, CQA, BSBM As the Global Quality Community celebrates World Quality Month, the profound ques on of what is “Quality” came up. The home page of the World Quality Day Website (h p:// asq.org/world-quality-month) has a list of entries submi ed to the #Qualityis Contest a emp ng to define “Quality.” You can vote for your favorite before November 19th. plied into diﬀerent areas and depending on the objec ve, the defini on may have a diﬀerent aim. According the Merriam-Webster Dic onary, Quality is an adjecve. Many of us would probably disagree that it is a simple adjecve. The word is complex and that is why it is hard to define in just one way. I think Quality is a verb because the word rarely comes without an ac on. Quality is an ac on word that can be used to dis nguish the diﬀerence between acceptable and not acceptable. One can also say that Quality is a culture that lives in companies that strive for success and value. Whichever it is the defini on you choose to apply, Quality is a pillar in our society because without it, chaos will surely find its way. It is a compass that helps us find the direc on to success regardless of the industry, product or service. Quality is the measuring tool that benchmarks those that are willing to “do it right the first me” versus any that defy the odds for their existence. Quality is a fascina ng field that has created a plethora of methods and philosophies that developed and nurtured companies such as the Ford Company, GE, Chrysler, Boeing, Apple or the “mom & pop” shop that inspires the next conglomerate of the world.
