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.
Circular economy plays a key role in achieving climate targets, as a large proportion of greenhouse gas emissions are attributable to the extraction and reprocessing of primary raw materials. This new whitepaper presents six central solution approaches for the successful implementation of a circular economy.
The accredited certification of management systems has evolved into an integral component of our economy. In particular, the introduction of the same basic structure (Annex SL / High Level Structure) enables organizations to establish an integrated management system focused on achieving the organization’s objectives. In this whitepaper, experts examined the role that certifications will play going forward.
Our world and our value system are constantly changing and evolving – and so is our understanding of quality and the concept of quality itself.

The whitepaper provides solutions to these and many other interesting questions!
Why does our company exist and how can we contribute to making the world a little bit better?

The whitepaper is dedicated to the topic of "purpose" and provides tips on how organizations can master the path to purpose-driven work.
Smart products, digital technologies and unprecedented connectivity: with every increase in digitalization, new processes, business areas and workflows emerge. It is evident that this has an impact on quality concepts. How can quality be ensured even in the age of Industry 4.0?
