Quality 4.0: Beyond Digital Technology

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Presentations and publications on Quality 4.0 focus heavily on new digital technologies that fundamentally change the way organizations function. Typically big data and artificial intelligence will be mentioned as important and disruptive factors. However, the real world is still analog and so are our customers. Quality is ideally placed to see how these powerful digital tools can best be used to improve customer experience in the analog world.  Quality professionals can lead this change for the better, but they must be willing to take up the challenge and to make some necessary changes themselves. This presentation will cover why what, and how of this great opportunity for Quality.

Throughout the presentation one concept is vital: the cycle of learning, unlearning, and relearning as described by Alvin Toffler in his book “Future Shock”. The critical point to prepare a company for the future is to create the willingness to enter this learning cycle.
