  • How does quality management work in practice?

    Quality management professionals fulfill many roles and responsibilities in real-world scenarios. From quality planning to implementing a quality management system standard, these professionals work hard toward constant quality improvement. 

    Continuous Improvement

    Fostering an environment of continuous growth and improvement is an important responsibility of quality management professionals. By implementing effective quality improvement methods and taking vital quality initiatives to increase customer satisfaction, these professionals promote operational excellence and find ways to deal with operational risks that often prevent growth and improvement.

    Evidence-Led

    Using factual data to make informed business decisions is essential in quality management. Evidence-led quality management uses statistical techniques to uncover trends, inefficiencies, or areas for improvement. Based on these analyses, a Quality Manager implements changes, designs improvements, or addresses issues. 

    Customer-Focus

    The customer is a major focus in quality management. From understanding customer needs and expectations to drawing insights from their feedback for continual improvements, customer-focus quality management is essential. 

    Cost-Management

    In quality management, cost management plays a significant role. The role involves identifying and reducing unnecessary quality assurance and control expenses. The managed costs include training and equipment maintenance, preventing poor quality, and dealing with failures like warranty claims, reworks, and returns.  

  • How to earn a quality management certification?

    Earning a quality management certification involves a series of steps. From choosing the right certification course to passing the certification examination, let’s understand the whole process step-by-step: 

    Choose A Quality Management Certification

    The initial and the most important step towards earning a quality management certification is choosing the right type of certification based on your requirements, experience, the goals of your business, and industry standards. You can opt for Lean Six Sigma certifications, Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence (CMQ/OE) certifications, quality standards certifications, and many others. 

    Review The Enrollment Requirements

    When applying for a quality management certification, it is mandatory to fulfill the enrollment requirements. Even if most quality management courses do not require prior work experience, they ask for different qualifications. For instance, to pursue a diploma course in quality management, the minimum educational requirement is high school or equivalent. For a postgraduate certification, the minimum educational requirement is graduation. Similarly, some professional certifications may ask for degrees related to the topics covered in quality management certification

    Scan The Certification Outline

    The certification outline covers all the topics that are to be focused on, and it is this outline that helps determine whether the course covers what the learners are willing to learn and gain expertise in. 

    Start Studying For The Exam

    Preparation plays a vital role in earning a quality management certification. Two to three hours of self-study for up to three weeks can help pass the examination easily. 

    Take A Practice Test
