The 4 Habits of Highly Effective Quality Management Programs

Published: Jun 13, 2019



What can contact centers that aren’t completely sold on quality management learn from those that are?

Many contact centers believe they have a cohesive, highly integrated quality management program when what they actually have are disparate, disjointed quality management activities that don’t support a discrete goal and don’t cohere into a full-fledged quality management program. A clear vision is the key to maximizing the benefits of a quality management program: start by defining your end state (i.e., what kind of service experience do you want to provide?) and work backwards, selecting metrics, processes, and tools/technologies that will help you deliver the highest possible quality. Customers want a great experience and agents want to provide a great experience: the best quality management programs can satisfy both groups, to the ultimate benefit of the organization.

However, recent research revealed that just 25% of contact center leaders are very satisfied with some or all effects of the impact and influence of their quality management programs. Which begs the question: What can contact centers that aren’t completely sold on quality management learn from those that are?
