My name is Agata Lewkowska.
For more than 14 years I have been working with "quality" in organizations with a production profile in the automotive supply chain.
I decided to share with you my knowledge and experience which I gained during:
- implementation and maintenance of quality management systems in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001 and IATF 16949,
- supplier management,
- as a quality engineer on the production line.
I am a very well-educated practictioner
The professional experience itself did not give me complete satisfaction. I lacked a structured and methodical approach to many aspects of quality. That’s why I did my Ph.D. at the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH).
Four years of study led to the creation of a doctoral thesis in the field of economic sciences from the discipline of management and quality sciences. They represent a very important turning point for me in the whole reasoning of the concept of quality. In-depth literature studies with professional experience working with quality management systems show how misinterpreted quality can be. First of all, quality is not only a product that the customer buys! Unfortunately, many organizations think the opposite despite the implementation of certified quality management systems.
Why am I doing this?
I have a mission.
My strength is knowing the requirements, methods and concepts supporting quality. They can be used IN ANY KIND OF INDUSTRY not only in automotive from which I come.
I want to convey to organisations that it is only through wise quality, understood in a multifaceted way, it is possible to achieve a competitive advantage. I want to help you get that quality awareness.
If you are looking for ideas, knowledge, motivation – I invite you to read this blog. QualityWise is one of the tools you can use for this.
