A CQI team is a set of interdependent players, aligned for a common aim–that of improving work processes and products. One of the early tasks, after finding an opportunity to improve, is to select a set of people who have process knowledge. The team membership can be fluid, changing as new needs arise. The team’s work should be sanctioned by the organization (e.g., the Quality Council) and recognized as legitimate, important activity, not just an add-on.
A team will make a better decision, given good information, than any individual alone.
