Continuous quality improvement (CQI) is a quality management philosophy that encourages all team members to continuously ask what can be done better. CQI builds on existing quality management approaches such as TQM, Lean, and Six Sigma, and emphasizes that problems are caused by processes, not people. 

Although CQI focuses on people, data drive the search for problems and captures improvements. A continuous quality improvement program aims to ensure that all team members, employees, managers, and other stakeholders feel consistently empowered to improve efforts and results.

The purpose of this module is to provide supervisors with a reference for continuous quality improvement.  By understanding the continuous improvement process, knowing the tools available to you for your work, and employing sound team procedures, you and your team will be able to contribute to continuous quality improvement.
