How to Live and Continuously Grow a Quality Culture of an Organisation

Another dedicated focused session about “ Living a Quality Culture”. 3 experts, 3 different backgrounds, experiences, roles and projects in hands will take us through their journey in driving quality culture within organisations.
Because Quality culture does not come with an “On” button that magically transforms an organisation.  Changing quality culture is the most difficult part of any data integrity program as it requires the whole organisation from the Board Room to the lab bench to have the same culture and ethos that enables individuals to admit their mistakes without fear of retribution.  Through this session, we will explore how data integrity and quality initiatives can be enhanced within an organisation.  To illustrate some quality culture problems, we will use examples from FDA 483 observations, warning letters and the daily challenge in QC.  The aim of these presentations is to generate attendee questions for the discussion session that follows.
