Quality Manager Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Quality Manager in Birmingham:
"A Wide Reaching Subject."
Quality is something most people seem to fall into from other roles. It is a fantastic role for getting to know a business and having input into all parts of the business process. It is a bit of a thankless role as the benefits of Quality are not always seen but the amount we spend and when we tell people something cannot be done then we are noticed! I have found it very difficult to move between industries so pick one that you are happy to be in for the long-haul and you can then move between companies. Being a part of audits and being called upon by senior levels for input into meetings means you will get over any confidence issues quickly and there are plenty of learning opportunities that come out of it - document writing and storage skills, auditing, six sigma, lean manufacturing.
