QUALITY CONTROL CIRCLE (QCC) or INNOVATIVE & CREATIVE CIRCLE (ICC)
   
iNTRODUCTION :
 
 

A QCC or ICC is a small group of employees, usually coming from the same work area who voluntarily meet on a regular basis to identify, investigate, analyze and solve their work-related problems together in order to contribute to the improvement of the enterprise. It also helps respect humanity and to build a cheerful workgroup through the development of the staff's infinite potential. It has been the Japanese experience that 95% of the problems in the workshop can be solved with simple quality control methods such as the 7 quality control tools [Ishikawa, 1986]. These tools will help QCCs to do brainstorming systematically and to analyze the problems critically. Then, through logical thinking and experience, most problems can be solved.

Another benefit of QCC is an improved two-way communication. The management becomes more concerned with the staff problems and, in turn, the staff becomes aware of the day-to-day problems of running an organization. Communication between departments also improves. QCC program in general requires the same framework as ISO 9000 quality standards regarding the management structure and in-company training. Therefore, QCCs should be part of any company's Total Quality Program. Organizations that introduce QCC programs also helps to establish customer confidence. This training program is specially designed to training QCC Members, Leaders and Facilitators on how to start a QCC team. Apart from lectures and practice sessions, this program also includes computer simulations to help reinforce participant’s understanding of the QC Tools functions in Problem Solving cycles. This training program is a must for those who want to adopt the QCC way of quality improvement through teamwork and people empowerment.
