Inside Quality Digest Live for December 21, 2018

Being small, thinking big, catching on fire. We're sure they're connected.

Published: Thursday, January 3, 2019 - 12:02

We tied up last year in a neat little bow, talking about how stories define ourselves and our work; waste is waste, no matter your political leanings; and putting numbers from the news in context.

“The Gift of Being Small”

This article by Quality Digest’s Taran March wonderfully illustrates how we, and everything we do, is influenced by our “story”—our history up to the current moment.

“ISO 14001, ISO 50001 Benefit the Environment and the Bottom Line”

Ripped from the headlines: Tesla battery fire makes news. Why?

Mike and I discuss why certain events make the news, even if they aren’t that extraordinary.

Off Script: Trends for 2019

What’s up for 2019? We don't know, but we will pretend that we do.
