Abstract : How does a commander get a unit prepared for a Quality Air Force Assessment? What are the most important ingredients to ensure productivity and process improvement? How do I juggle all my mission tasks and responsibilities while at the same time develop a course of action to instill quality principles in my organization? Those questions are certainly pertinent in today's military environment where mission responsibilities are on the rise and Quality Air Force programs continue to be refined. As a commander, I struggled with these issues but found a real link between mission and quality. The bridge that links these critical issues is a quality approach which includes key variables such as leadership, core values, strategic planning, team building, and assessments. As such, I will provide a commander's perspective based on my own experiences on how to prepare for a Quality Air Force Assessment. Preparing for a Quality Air Force Assessment is not for the Inspector General Team. It is for your unit! Principles used in your quality journey in preparation for the assessment will pave the way for quality integration throughout your organization. Further, a quality roadmap leading up to the formal assessment will have a tremendous impact on mission productivity and continuous process improvement.
