At AOQ we are excited to introduce Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Each Group will have a specific focus and will be facilitated by an AOQ member/s who is equally as passionate about the topic as you are. New Groups may be added at any time depending on the needs of our members.
If you are keen to get involved in one of the Groups below, complete the information at the bottom of the page and we'll be in contact. If you'd be keen to join another Group that is not yet listed let us know by selecting 'Other' and noting the topic that you are interested in.
The Laboratory Special Interest Group brings together AOQ Members from laboratories from across Australia to learn from each other on matters to do with quality and laboratory accreditation. We provide a place where laboratory quality managers can openly share issues they are facing with respect to quality and accreditation and provide a setting for professional development of laboratory quality professionals through formal learning seminars with experts in various aspects of quality.
This Special Interest Group is facilitated by two laboratory quality professionals and fellow AOQ members, Maree Stuart and Cathy O'Dwyer.
The Performance Improvement Special Interest Group brings together AOQ Members from any location to share new technologies and techniques, best practice/lessons learnt (PDCA) and jointly resolve challenges in the areas of Optimisation, Digitisation and New Technology to achieve continuous improvement. This also includes developments in regulation and standards.
We aim to provide an opportunity where quality professionals can share and enhance their knowledge in the area of performance improvement that can be applied to their own projects or workplace.
This Special Interest Group is facilitated by AOQ member, Suresh Prabhakaran.
The Quality to Excellence Special Interest Group brings together AOQ Members from across Australia to explore how management systems can be used by organisations in conjunction with excellence models. We provide a place where quality, excellence and improvement professionals can collaborate to explore this topic and openly share issues they are facing with respect to leveraging diverse management systems, improvement methodologies and excellence models. The SIG aims to provide a setting for professional development and will act as a think tank to further develop global thinking in this field.
This Special Interest Group is facilitated by AOQ members, Ravi Fernando, Maree Stuart and Jackie Stone.
