ASQ 2008 World Conference Focus: Generation Quality

I just received an e-mail from ASQ regarding their conferences and couldn't help but rub the balding head at a few of the focus areas.

The Lean Enterprise Division is looking for concurrent session proposals and preconference tutorial programs for presentation at two events:

· The ASQ World Conference on Quality and Improvement in Houston, TX, May 5-7, 2008

· The ASQ Six Sigma Conference in Phoenix, AZ, February 11-12, 2008



The theme for the 2008 World Conference is Generation Quality: Spanning Borders, Practices, and Professions. The deadline for submission to ASQ is August 1, 2007. Focus areas are: generational diversity, virtual universe, innovation/application, business excellence, knowledge transfer, and teams. You may go to this link for complete directions on how to submit and selection criteria: http://wcqi.asq.org/call-for-papers/2008-submit.html.
"Generational diversity", "virtual universe"...geez. :horse: Maybe a seance for the deceased leaders in the field of quality to add some additional drama to the event.

I'm thinking ASQ needs to get back to basics, or at least have the leadership pull their heads out of their :ca:.

Re: Asq

Sounds like a lot of flowery language that says, "Please help us understand how to remain relevant."

Re: ASQ Conference Focus

I agree with your statement of flowery wording but at the same time I feel that generational diversity is a great topic and it is too often ignored in todays society when it comes to work and how people execute their work.

Now this is true, and I should be less of a cynic regarding ASQ. :notme: I would in fact like to be a fly on the wall during a conference discussing this topic, only thing is I would like to do it without taking on such expense.

Re: ASQ Conference Focus

You run into this with all organizations these days. Their conferences want NEW IMPROVED FLASHY INNOVATIVE . . .

If I wrote a conference proposal to show the advantages of Shewhart Charts from the 1930's, I'd get laughed at by the reviewers. If I turn in the same topic as "How to manage your numbers instead of your numbers managing you" (a real title I've used) then it will get accepted.

Re: ASQ Conference Focus

Gosh! I was going to propose a topic for a presentation at that conference:
"Elsmar Cove - a free [and better] alternate to expensive ASQ courses and conferences!"

Is the topic abstruse enough?;)
