"Forming Business Structures to Facilitate Widespread Use of Quality"
In today’s ever increasing competitive marketplace, successful companies must employ the use of Integrated Quality Systems to make quality a part of every process of their business activities.

Often companies undergo different levels of integration from simple integration for a business process to a full corporate integration affecting all processes and culture. It is useful for Quality professionals to understand this journey in terms of evolutionary stages. One interviewed executive states, “no matter where you achieve success, you always recognize you are in a long journey.”
This document will prepare executives in all industries to set out on this journey with practices and benchmarks from leading quality organizations that have successfully managed and benefited from a well-integrated quality function.
