Inside Quality Digest Live for January 11, 2019

From smart toilets to smart people... we cover it all

Published: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - 13:00

Who’s more clever, engineers or designers? Alexa-connected toilet, anyone? How do you promote rigorous thinking? We discussed all of that and more during this week’s QDL.

“CES brings you... the Alexa-connected toilet!’

Just when you thought that nothing crazier than your clothes dryer could be connected to the internet... there’s this.

“How to Get Smarter and Sharper Employees”

In order to promote rigorous thinking for better problem solving, all team members should be prepared to advocate for their ideas and defend them. They should be prepared to walk through the upside, downside, data points rooted in reality, and how the idea works given assets and constraints. With that in mind, what questions should team members ask?

“Are Engineers More Creative Than Designers?”

If you are asking that question, you are missing the point.

Off Script: So long, Mike. Thanks for everything.

Quality Digest publisher Mike Richmond leaves Quality Digest to work in... wait for it... politics. Is he crazy?
