Sharpening Skills

Quality & ISO 9000 International Standards of Excellence

How do you measure Success? Quality is one yardstick that businesses and customers alike may choose. Whether a company calls it Total Quality Management (TQM), Total Quality Control (TQC), or by some other designation, all such programs aim to improve operating processes, products and services. But quality can be a very subjective judgment. Your idea of what constitutes quality service, for instance, may be very different from that of the clerk who serves you at the grocery store. And the grocery store in Boston may have a different standard of quality than the grocery store in Los Angeles or London.

That's where ISO 9000 fits in. The term refers to a series of universal standards that define a "Quality Assurance" system developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and adopted by 90 countries around the world.
