Inside Quality Digest Live for May 19, 2017

Hail technology!

Published: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 12:00

The episode of QDL from this past Fri., May 19, 2017, offered a wonderful example of Dirk geeking out about NIST and innovation in metrology, not to mention a great interview and a delicious take on the power of chefs as leaders.

“Move Over, Superman”

Lots of people talk about infrastructure improvements, but few have the chops to identify the bridges and overpasses that need repair. This story from NIST shows how their researchers have developed a spectral technique to “see” inside structures.

Interview: Violet Masoud

Violet Masoud, DNV’s director of sales, MSC, joined us for a great discussion about risk-based thinking, context of the organization, and more. Join us for a webinar on these topics titled “Risk Management: A Hands-On Approach and Transition Strategies,” this Thurs., May 25, 2017, at 9 a.m. Pacific/12 p.m. Eastern.

“How to Lead Like a Top Chef”

Author Miguel Noguerol set before himself quite the task: To travel the world, sampling the food and service from top chefs at great restaurants. Hey, it’s a tough job, but somebody had to do it. What he learned offered some great lessons in leadership.

“The Amazing Hidden World of Metrology Technology”

World Metrology Day happens every year on May 20, and it’s the perfect time to consider the contributions of the science of measurement. Dirk and I chatted about his latest op-ed regarding innovation in the field, and offered a shout-out to our key metrology partner, the CMSC.

Catch us again for another episode of Quality Digest Live this coming Fri., May 26, 2017. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
