The term “quality professional” has been around for well over 100 years, and like the industries this function serves, the meaning and skill sets continually evolve to suit the needs of industry. Our profession is rapidly changing and the competencies required are no longer within a single discipline, but rather found in multiple disciplines ranging from traditional quality tools to ethics and IT. This presentation will discuss the core competencies and responsibilities of the modern quality professional, and why a diversified skill set is now more important than ever. Embark on your journey of change now, or risk being left behind wondering why job opportunities and career growth are limited.Continue reading June 2019 Section Meeting: “Quality Professional” – Old Function, New Competencies
