As the outgoing editor, I solicited members of the QMJ Editorial Board with whom I have worked to share their insights about the future of quality management research. These individuals have reviewed numerous papers, are engaged in ongoing research in the field, and most are also involved in teaching the subject. Their insights provide numerous ideas to help the many contributors to the field to identify pertinent topics to build new knowledge and to sustain the discipline and the journal.
This paper is a collection of thoughts from Jim Evans QMJ Editor and several QMJ Editorial Board members including myself. If you are looking for a research topic in the area of quality management, I highly recommend this paper. My small contribution is the section labeled “Cross-disciplinary Research” pp. 51-52. This is directly related to my research agenda which is often cross-disciplinary.
