That is a loaded question. What about Japan- umm was it not people from the US that introduced "Quality" to them, becuase the US factories felt they didn't need it??

The Brits- pioneered ISO 9000- no wonder it is such a mess!!
:biglaugh: Just kidding, actually they took a US milatry standard and rewrote it, so once again it leads back to the US.

The Germans pay lip service to the Quality Standards and the French take the opposite opinion of every other country.

The US has the FDA to police the Medical Community, QS was put in place by the Big-3 so they could try and control who could and could not supply them.

I am sure other countries have similar things in place and each does a failrly good job in doing what it was intended to do. But is anyone Country leader in Quality IMHO I would say no.

I took the question to mean the trail blazer to Quality. The leader, if you will. We all know that the trails have been paved over and are now called roads.
As for who it is today? It all depends on the type of measuring instrument and who is doing the measuring.

Andrews,

Was it your intent to ask an unanswerable question? This one seems pretty close.

What is your definition of "quality leader"? I can't even begin to think of my answer without knowing that -- and even them my answer will probably be wrong. :bonk:

Off the wall, but how about the U.S. because of Henry Ford revolutioinizing the mass production process that included part and process interchangability??

The reason I asked this question is to
a) to identify the reasons why a particular country is a "Quality Leader" and
b) implement the same in my organisation so that we can become a "Quality Leader".

Did you follow through? How about a status report?

Andrews,

Why don't you try the 'Baldridge Awards' - If you can meet those demands then I am sure your compnay will have all of the credentials of a 'Quality Leader'.

I have been led to believe that Australia has the highest per capita business registrations to ISO.
