Quality – A Bridge to the Future
The Twentieth Century provided the greatest technological advances in the history of mankind. What was once a linear rate of change has shifted to an exponential rate so significant progress can be expected throughout the 21st century. However change is not just limited to technology, for organizations saw and will continue to see advancement in an expanding global supply chain, evolution in leadership systems, development and deployment of effective strategic planning, and an increase in various management systems.
Quality too has seen significant advances over the past century as Quality Management Systems, statistical techniques, Six Sigma, and automated inspection were developed and evolved. Quality has and will continue to prove to be a key differentiator in an organization’s success, thus “quality is a bridge to the future”.
