It’s been a long time! Although I haven’t served in this role since the spring of 2009, I am pleased once again to host ASQ Influential Voices blogger John Hunter’s Management Improvement Carnival, […]
Hi! I'm Nicole, and I like improving things (including myself) -- and thinking about quality as a concept and a discipline. I got my PhD in Quality from Indiana State and have dragons in my glass. I teach in the Department of Integrated Science and Technology (ISAT) at James Madison University (JMU). and contribute to the ASQ Influential Voices program. While I receive an honorarium from ASQ for my commitment, the thoughts and opinions expressed on my blog are my own!
I'm available for consulting and enjoy work that addresses strategic positioning that integrates quality and innovation -- just email me and let me know what's on your mind! If I can't do it, I'll refer you to someone trustworthy who can. 100% of the proceeds from my consulting support the Burning Mind Project.
I also enjoy references to quality in fiction & drama so let me know if you read any good quality-related novels, or watch any movies where quality and innovation play major roles.
