Austin S. Lin – Incoming Chair Message 2011-12

Austin Lin“The enemy of great is good.” – Jim Collins

With over 100,000 members in over 129 countries, the American Society for Quality remains the premier global organization for the profession, promoting quality as a rigorous, multi-functional culture of conducting business and fostering customer-driven growth. Improving from good to great is in the profession’s DNA and it is this heritage that the Metropolitan Section’s members strive to hone and enhance.

The NY/NJ Metropolitan Section’s founding members in the 1940s included the seminal thought leaders of the profession with names such as William Edwards Deming, Joseph Juran, Mason Wescott, Harold Dodge, and Walter Shewhart. As the elected Chair of the New York/ New Jersey Metropolitan Section, I am thrilled to be part of this great organization and participate in its storied tradition.

Along with the Metropolitan Executive Leadership Team and associated Committee Chairs, we benefit greatly from having the shoulders of such giants to stand upon, but tradition alone hardly equates with current and future progress. Rather, it will take the collaboration throughout our own talented membership internal to Metropolitan as well as through other organizations external to ASQ in order to diligently maintain a stance of stable, productive growth. We are continually seeking members who are passionate in contributing their personal expertise to the section and ultimately, to the entirety of the quality profession while furthering the section’s legacy into the decades to come.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) mandates the application of the ISM Code to all vessels and is mandatory for vessels of 500 gross tonnages and upward including mobile offshore drilling units. Continue reading Major Differences between ISO 9001 and ISM Code
