The Quality Improvement Section (QIS) provides a forum for best practice in the application of statistical methods seeking to improve organisational performance and outcomes, whilst encouraging statisticians to be involved as key advisers at a practical level in organisational improvement.
Quality Improvement was originally part of Business and Industry Section, and initially formed as a committee. In 2004 it was re-designated as a Section when the importance of Quality Improvement was more widely recognised. The Section ran a Six Sigma study group for five years which has now been re-absorbed into the Section. This study group enabled the RSS to be influential in the development of the new Six Sigma BSI and ISO standards. The Section now has strong links with both BSI and Chartered Quality Institute.

QIS is an outward facing section and welcomes all contributions from within and without the RSS.
There are currently no upcoming events for this group/section
