The American Society for Quality (ASQ)

Software Division: Our Priorities for

2010-2012, and What it Means for You

by: Nicole Radzwill, PhD, MBA. ASQ Software Division Chair

Tuesday January 26, 2010

In this talk, Nicole will introduce you to the American Society for Quality (ASQ), an organization of over 120,000 members worldwide. In particular, she will cover the activities of the Software Division, whose mission is to be the "leading global authority, nexus for knowledge, and recognized champion for excellence in software." With over 4000 members, the Software Division plans conferences, manages educational opportunities, and participates in standards development to help bridge the gap between academia and practitioners who want to build better software and promote continuous improvement.


Nicole Radziwill is Chair of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Software Division through 2012. Dr. Radziwill is also on the faculty of the Department of Integrated Science and Technology at James Madison University (JMU) in Harrisonburg, Virginia. She has an MBA, a Ph.D. in technology management with a specialization in quality systems, and is certified by the ASQ as a Manager of Quality and Organizational Excellence (CMQ/OE). She has also been appointed by the U.S. Department of Commerce as an Examiner for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA), established by the U.S. Congress in 1987.
