The UQMI utilizes a variety of resources in order to provide the best opportunity for learning. Students may select to form their own Study Groups for Certification Preparation or request a specific instructor or their choice. Custom Instructors must elect to become UQMI Approved Instructors before conducting classes under the UQMI Name. Our Online Platform is built to accommodate both Synchronous and Asynchronous Instruction. Because we market to many international universities and students, we have learned that it is often useful to have pre-recorded courses to adjust for time zone differences. However, we are always willing to communicate directly with our students live.
UQMI is an international accreditation and certification organization
that consist of members from a variety of industries and diverse
occupations that share a common interest in a balanced approach to
continuous improvement. Dr. Daniel Stoelb founded the original
organization in 1998 under the name of the Lean Manufacturing
Consortium. In 2009, the Lean Manufacturing Consortium merged with
another organization, named the International Lean Association. Dr. Ronald Fite would later become the President of the LMC in 2003 and President of the LMC in 2008. By
2010, the LMC and ILA restructured under the name of The UNITED QUALITY
MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE (UQMI).
The structure of our organization consist of a board chair and board of directors that represent a wide range of knowledge and experience. These individuals come from manufacturing, consulting firms and academic backgrounds.
VISION: To provide a standardize approach for skill recognition in the area of Continuous Improvement for both Domestic and International groups.
MISSION: This will be accomplished by reviewing and accrediting of the courses offered by our Partner Members and the standardization of the certification and recognition process.
