A key strategic question for modern organizations centers around the notion of quality. For many years, quality in business usually meant high end products that had a certain look and feel to them where the amount of time, effort and skill needed to make the products was clearly evident, and was as a result reflected in the price. Think Rolls Royce cars, bespoke dining furniture or Swiss watches. Then, toward the end of the 20th Century, quality began to mean something else in business. It was a quality of systems inside a firm, so that they were able to compete with others not necessarily on quality of product, but on quality of process. By reducing errors and maximizing efficiency, firms could lead the market through their processes while ensuring customers were happy.
Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.
