Quality, as a profession, is a constant from the European Guilds, 1000 years ago, to contemporary cyber-warfare. However, the control of the definition and measurement of Quality is evolving from the hands of the practitioner to the keystroke of the internet expert. This session reviews the vital relationship between the Quality Profession, relevant skills and technology in the past and present. Using practical examples, the session suggests how those in the profession of quality can incrementally prepare for and control future standards in business and industry, healthcare, and education.
