In October 2005, the need to create a unified vision for how the Society carries out its education and training emerged from a Member Leader Summit. The previous system, where HQ, sections, divisions, and forums all operated independently, lacked standardization and failed to maximize ASQ�s talents and capabilities. As a result, the ASQ Learning Institute was developed and approved by the ASQ Board of Directors.  It was determined that ASQ would start with a clean slate and develop a vision and long view for its training and education efforts. It needed to be modern, something responsive to the needs of customers and members, and something that makes the best use of ASQ�s tremendous talents and capabilities.
