The American Society for Quality (ASQ) is the world's leading authority on quality. With more than 100,000 individual and organizational members, this professional association advances learning, quality improvement, and knowledge exchange to improve business results, and to create better workplaces and communities worldwide. As champion of the quality movement, ASQ offers technologies, concepts, tools, and training to quality professionals, quality practitioners, and everyday consumers, encouraging all to Make Good Great®. Globally, ASQ has formed relationships with other nonprofit organizations that have comparable missions and principles. Our international strategic alliances are helping to meet the quality needs of companies, individuals, and organizations worldwide. ASQ members have informed and advised the U.S. Congress, government agencies, state legislatures and other groups and individuals on quality-related topics. And since 1991 ASQ has administered the United States' premier quality honor-the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, which annually recognizes companies and organizations that have achieved performance excellence.
