A View from the Q with interest. In this Blog, Paul Borwaski, CEO of ASQ, has provided an excellent round-up of quality as a profession in 2011. I am writing to add some of my random thoughts.

Nothing personal, but failing to see what the Baldrige has done and can do for a pittance of investment indicates some serious flaw in policy making in the USA.
