Quality in the 21st Century: Perspectives from ASQ Feigenbaum Medal Winners
To edit and write this book was quite challenging but at the same time an honorable task. We received contributions from Quality Professionals with different backgrounds and professional careers in the quality field. Young Quality Professionals that sometime in their lives have been recognized for their achievements and leadership in quality and for their promising careers—definition of a Feigenbaum Medallist. In the next paragraphs, we highlight some of the main contributions provided by each chapter, together with some regards resulting from the additional information provided in the short biographical notes that we also asked them to provide under a common format. In both cases, these final paragraphs provide the editors (intrinsically subjective) to view for some of the main statements and common patterns that were obtained from our own perspective and reading of all the contents covered in the book.
