Published: Friday, February 3, 2017 - 16:36

In case you missed it, last week’s Quality Digest Live contained some great articles and discussion between myself and my co-host, Quality Digest publisher in chief Mike Richman. In the show, we covered:

Manufacturing Trends to Watch in 2017

In this run-down of technologies to watch, of particular interest to us was the concept behind Amazon Go.

NIST Announces 2017 Research Funding Opportunity for Small Businesses

Phase I of NIST’s competitive program provides individual awards of up to $100,000 to encourage small U.S. businesses to engage in federally funded research and development opportunities that have the potential for commercialization.

In this interview with Tim Lozier, he tells how we can work together as a team to promote a companywide commitment to quality in a centralized and common way.

“Off Script: Corporate Shaming—President Kennedy vs President Trump”

President Trump is not the first president to call out specific companies. Back in 1962 President Kennedy did not mince words with U.S. Steel.

Tune in this coming Friday, Feb. 3 for our next exciting show. You can watch us either on our home page or our special player page. See you there!
