Continuous Quality Improvement

What it IS

  • A process; a way of conducting business
  • A belief that the opinions and ideas of each person have great value for the institution
  • A way of governing that allows for input from all interested parties
  • A philosophy that no matter how good we are, there is always room for improvement
  • A system that is ONLY successful if people volunteer

What it IS NOT

  • A gimmick, a separate team, or a passing trend
  • A group of a chosen few who have power because they were appointed to a team
  • A guarantee that decisions will always be unanimous or that all suggestions will be put into action
  • A movement necessitated by poor quality to begin with
  • A mandate for forced participation
