Scraping off the rough edges…

As we all enter into the new year, we strive to visualize a clearer, sharper future depleted of unpleasantries. Processing work 5 seconds faster, not devouring that one ounce of delicacy, spending 25 words more with family, etc – all minor adjustments to your KPI but having a telling effect on the results!

This new year, I would strive to perform better by visualizing every new problem as a window of opportunity. Major issues to focus on are:

1. Bringing quality to the Top Management

2. Building the Local Member Community

3. Learning from fellow quality professionals and vice-versa

4. Kaizen of work, home and life in general.

I am probably promising myself the same old resolutions of the past years, however the idea is to scrap off the rough edges, where they can be improved.

Happy New Year to all ASQ followers, particularly to all Influential Voices! Let us together strive to spread the essence of quality.

About Sam4Quality
Hey, I'm Sameer Chougle and I've been chosen as one of the Influential Voices of ASQ by ASQ. Quite an honor for me, I must say! I generally don't quite write much about me as I believe 'Beauty remains in the eyes of the beholder'. However, for the beauty to show, someone needs to behold me, so. I am currently engaged as a Quality Assurance Unit Head with a leading construction and contracting company in Kuwait. A Chemical engineer by academics, I soon became a passionate advocate of quality, having consulted 9 companies in Kuwait towards QMS certification. Currently, pursuing a Masters program in operations management, I am also a certified QMS, OHSAS Lead Auditor, EMS Internal Auditor and Six Sigma Green Belt. My simplest and most favored quality tool is Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) - it can be applied to ANY process, and I mean any process --> personal, work, academic, anything! I love mentoring my younger colleagues towards quality, and my guess is they love it too! A lot many educative years down the lane, I'd like to be known as a person 'who did quality in everything, for everything and everyone'! Late last year, I was honored by American Society for Quality as one of the ’40 new Voices of Quality’, and published as a featured candidate in their Nov 2011 issue of Quality Progress magazine.
