Inside Quality Digest Live for May 11, 2018

Quotas, overproduction, and core values. It’s all related. Somehow.

Published: Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 12:00


In our May 11, 2018, episode of QDL, we looked at overproducing ideas, bad quotas (aren’t they all), and how anger can help identify core values.

“Questioning Quotas”

When are quotas bad? Most of the time. But here’s a good example.

“How to Find Your Company’s Core Values”

Oddly enough, your anger may provide a clue.

“Overproduction vs. Fast Improvement Cycles”

Small changes applied continuously become big changes very quickly.

“Virtual Validation on the Rise, But Physical Testing Remains Crucial”

Even though almost everything we make begins in digital form and can be tested on computers, physical testing is still needed.

Off script: China.

Catch us again for another episode of Quality Digest Live this coming Friday at 11 a.m. Pacific. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
