PQI - Personal Total Quality Improvement

Personal quality improvement is total quality improvement applied to the individual. This technique pioneered by Deming and Juran helped revolutionize business operations throughout Japan after World War II. This technique has typically been applied to business organizations. Now, quality improvement techniques are being designed for the individual. One example is in the medical field. For several years now, the American Board of Medical Specialties has been implementing a Maintenance of Certification. This process is an attempt to apply quality improvement techniques to the individual. PersonalTQI.com helps improve this process by bringing together ideas from all sectors of society in the quest for personal total quality improvement.
