World Quality Day
The purpose of World Quality Day is to promote awareness of quality around the world and to encourage individuals' development and organisations' prosperity
The CQI is proud to announce that the theme for World Quality Week 2013 will be ‘Making Collaboration Count’.
The theme is designed to reflect recent trends in public, private and non-profit sectors, all of which point towards increased collaboration. From shared services in local councils to joint ventures between charities and banks, the UK’s senior business and organisational leaders are increasingly utilising each other’s skills and resources to deliver projects in a more effective and cost-efficient manner. In a time when organisations need to achieve more with less, this is absolutely vital.
However, organisations will only achieve their goals if the processes that underpin collaboration are built on strong quality management principles. In turn this requires that internal departments collaborate closely with the quality function.
Successful collaborative working depends on robust and rigorous systems, processes and procedures being in place and open to scrutiny throughout. In other words, collaboration will only count if quality is at its heart.
World Quality Week runs from 11–15 November, with World Quality Day taking place on the second Thursday of the month, 14 November. The CQI will be supporting organisations and quality professionals in promoting quality management during the week through the provision of resources and ideas.

This theme came out of the belief that in order to survive during an economic downturn organisations require a strong competitive advantage, and that quality management and its focus on improving efficiency and productivity can help organisations achieve this.
