Operating a Virtual Organization (QKC) to Be Effective as a Curatorial Platform

The Chinese Society for Quality, Quality Knowledge Community (CSQ/QKC), Taiwan


This is an active and progressive program. Quality Knowledge Community (QKC) is organized by a group of members of Chinese Society for Quality (CSQ) voluntarily. The reason why we call QKC a virtual organization is that it is an informal organization in CSQ; it has no obligation for anybody; its members come from different educational levels, experience, age, job position, geographic; it was stem from QCRG which was a seminar group that had been active for more than 30 years. We have seminars twice a month. In addition, we communicate on various kinds of knowledge websites. Firstly, we clarify our visions, goals and strategies, then we utilize technology roadmap to develop short-term, medium-term and long-term plan of QKC, we name it "QKC Roadmap 2016~2024". We deploy annual plan referring to the roadmap and check it quarterly, and then we build a living mechanism to assure "QKC Roadmap 2016~2024" running effectively, we call it "A Time Stamped PDCA". Through the Internet information trend, we can also collect valuable information based on our own cognition, and then attach new interpretations and meanings to establish a communication and operation platform for innovation and quality management knowledge to identify these documented information and knowledge that improve the quality of life, product quality, service quality, environmental quality, and human quality for global Chinese and people from worldwide who agree with CSQ / QKC to share and apply. This is the new interpretation of CSQ / QKC, the platform of curation era for professional quality knowledge. This article tries to depict how QKC can operate such kind of virtual organization from the stage of forming, storming, norming, to performing.
