IEEE-ISTO Quality Initiative Hits New Milestones
The IEEE-ISTO established a Quality Initiative (Q.I.) project in 2008 whereby the organization would review existing processes and identify measurements of quality improvements in our ongoing effort to adhere to and support best business practices. By adhering to best business practices, IEEE-ISTO can assure programs that hey are receiving the highest levels of quality support.
Joan Woolery, IEEE-ISTO Sr. Program Manager, has been spearheading the project since its launch in 2008. Recently achieved milestones that will be leveraged directly by current and future IEEE-ISTO programs include a library of document templates which includes templates for program bylaws, membership agreements, financial policy and operating budget to name a few. Contact your program manager to learn more about the Quality Initiative.
