At the UPVLC, the Centre for Quality and Change Management (CQ) was created with three main objectives: Firstly the scientific research focused on the diffusion of their research results and the participation in research projects in public and private tenders. On the other hand the transfer of knowledge and competences of the members of the centre to our society with the aim of helping organizations to search excellence. And finally the integration of both objectives, as the interaction and feedback between researchers and organizations is fundamental for our field of work.
The main connection between the members of the centre is a common interest in the continuous improvement of the activities developed by organizations, the increase in their productivity and also the improvement of their quality with an approach based on total quality and excellence searching.
