Inside Quality Digest Live for March 23, 2018

Two great guests and March Madness for math geeks

Published: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - 12:00

QDL always strives to bring you a look at the people and stories making the news in the world of quality. We succeeded admirably on the “people” side of things this week and threw in a fun story about the physics of the basketball to boot. Let’s take a closer look:

“Clarity First Book Review and Interview with Author Karen Martin”

We were joined in the studio by consultant, speaker, and Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award-winning author Karen Martin to discuss her latest book, Clarity First.

“The Math Behind the Perfect Free Throw”

March is the time for the madness of the NCAA’s basketball championship tournament. In honor of that competition, we covered this piece, which considers the physics behind one of the game’s humblest but most important feats: the successfully converted free throw.

“Risk-Based Thinking and the Digital Transformation of Quality”

In this interview with Tim Lozier of EtQ, we discussed the need to interpret big data being uncovered by the move to Quality 4.0. Be sure to check out our webinar on this topic, “Risk-Based Thinking and the Digital Transformation of Quality” on Tues., March 27, at 2 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m. Pacific. Click here to register.
