Quality 2030 – Where is the journey heading?

Quality Austria, scientists of the Institute for Integrated Quality Design, experts and visionaries from various Austrian organizations started an exciting expedition into the future in 2018. The goal was to identify and critically question those developments that will influence future quality requirements (Quality 2030). Additionally, possible ways how affected organizations could deal with these developments were to be explored.

The result of open foresight workshops, keynote speeches, trend reports and a qualitative survey is the trend map "Quality 2030" including in-depth analyses of eight sub-themes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated many of these trends: whether sustainability, digitalization or agile working. Our current whitepaper series, written by expert teams, provides you with a compact overview of the most essential findings for your daily practice.
