This week’s episode of our show looked at the various ways in which quality organizations plan to ensure long-term success. Here are the stories we covered:

 “Worldwide Study of 25,000 Business Leaders Reveals Six Leadership Megatrends Changing the Workplace”

The Conference Board, in conjunction with research partners DDI and EY, took the pulse of business executives across the world regarding their top-of-mind strategic issues. Turns out that mentoring junior executives to take over when the big bosses pass from the scene is the No. 1 thing keeping these leaders awake at night.

“Tackling Space Junk With a High-Tech Harpoon and Net”

There are 100 million pieces of space junk 1 mm or larger floating above our heads, all traveling at more than 17,000 miles per hour. Space is a scary place! This video shows an innovative way to skim the atmosphere of all this dangerous material.

“Are You Prepared for Quality 4.0?”

In this interview with Ephy Torenberg of enterprise quality management software company HighQA, we discussed the implications of automation and big data for the world of quality. Be sure to check out our webinar on this topic, “Quality 4.0—A Game-Changing Trend” on Wed., March 14, at 2 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m. Pacific. Click here to register.

“Define the Question Before You Solve the Problem”

Trainer and author Mike Figliuolo offers this simple yet critically important piece of strategy: Make sure you know what your boss (or customer) is really asking before you provide an answer. You may be surprised at how much more effective your problem-solving may be.

The Trump administration is embracing protectionism in the form of hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum. Will that help U.S. workers (and organizations) more than it hurts them?
