April General Meeting 🗓 🗺

My Fellow members,

As you know, ASQ Chicago section is an all volunteer organization. All of what we do is being done by volunteers. A big “thank you” to them. Because we are all volunteers, the Chicago section usually has a recognition evening to recognize those members who help in special duties to keep the Chicago section functioning. We are one of the few that still has a strong program. Thanks to all of you our volunteers and members.

This month we will recognize some of our volunteers. Please attend to show your appreciation to your fellow members who do so much to help all the members. We are looking forward to seeing you at the April meeting.

ASQ Chicago section usually gives a scholarship to one of our freshman college student who meets our criteria. Well, one of them did. Guess who it is?
We will be making the award at the April meeting. Help us to congratulate the budding ASQ scholar. Looking forward to seeing you at the event.

February General Meeting 🗓 🗺

From your program chair, James Persaud…

My Fellow members,
Thank you for attending our January meeting despite the wonderful weather we experience that day. The meeting was well attended with higher than normal registration. Our presenter started the year with a “Go for it” presentation. It was interactive and attendees were involved. You make our meetings what they are. Please continue to participate.

February meeting information

At our February meeting, you get the opportunity to spend time with your significant other. The meeting is as usual, the 2nd Wednesday of the month. It so happens to be February 14th. Bring that special one to our meeting, have dinner with them, even a beverage. How nice of you. It will be different and memorable. Just try it. We were also reminded that it is “Ash Wednesday” we catered accordingly. Of interest at this meeting will be two most interesting topics namely:

Change Intelligence – that is, helping build the capacity of people, teams, and organizations to lead change that sticks”

Are you frustrated that no matter what you try, your improvement projects seem to either fail outright or produce gains that don’t last? The reality is that most changes do fail. As many as 70% of organizational change initiatives fall short of expectations. As a Quality professional, your career progress hinges on your ability to lead successful and sustainable change.

In this presentation, you’ll get introduced to how to get beyond the buzzwords and leverage a proven formula for change. The CQ System for Developing Change Intelligence is based on decades of change leadership in the workplace, years of conducting global research on managing change, and study into the psychology and neuroscience of change. About our presenter…

Clients served include Abbot Laboratories, BP, Cisco, Ford Motor Company, the NYPD, and United Airlines. Barbara holds a doctorate in Organizational Psychology from the University of Michigan.

Our other presenter is one of our own; Arvind Srivastava. He will be relating on “Attribute Agreement Analysis“.

Customers rarely differentiate the causals of a PPM defect at the contract table. A ppm is a ppm. Whether the feature is for a safety or critical nature vs a visual attribute nature, either can keep a company from securing the order. While product and process evaluations by humans are done daily for reasons of efficiency and cost, the effectiveness of this evaluation process can be but is rarely assessed. This leaves the organization wide open for risk of returns, ill-will, rework, and ultimately loss of business. Learn how to identify and manage this risk in a hands-on and engaging manner
