ASQ EMEA Virtual Conference: Nov 2021 - Peter F Gallagher Speaking on Change Leadership Lessons


10 Change Management Leadership Lessons Learned - All Leaders SHOULD Know

"Excellence Through Quality Leadership: Productivity, Resilience, Sustainability"

I first joined the ASQ in 2005 when I was working in the Netherlands for a global energy company and became an ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB) a few months later in February 2006. The ASQ, their staff, members, professional material, verified certification processes and their approach to quality highly impressed me then and still does today. In 2016, I studied and successfully passed the ASQ Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence Certification - CMQ/OE and still hold this qualification today.

I will be presenting at ASQ Europe in Nov 2021. This will be my fourth time speaking at an ASQ event. I have previously presented in Phoenix, Arizona in Feb 2020, at the ASQ World Conference in May 2021, and at the ASQ Great Britain Section in Jun 2021.


One of my favourite quotes is from Joseph M. Juran a quality guru, he said:

"Observing many companies in action, I am unable to point to a single instance in which stunning results were gotten without the active and personal leadership of the upper managers" ~ Joseph M. Juran

This quote inspired me back when I first read it, and I now consult, speak, and write on the Leadership of Change® - Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK).
