How Quality Are You?

Are you interested in quality management?

Quality is omnipresent. In every company, we must pay attention how do we work and where do we put our resources. But what does really make your company being quality? How can we measure it? I will try to help you find the answer.

“Quality… you know what it is, yet you don’t know what it is.” – Pirsig, 1974

Why is so hard to define the quality? Because the quality for everyone has a different level and direction. An example? For some a good quality is a cheap bar with the big portions of food, others to
feel the quality needs the 5* of Michelin, and yet another group will say, the best quality has a kitchen of their grandma. Quality depends on our expectation, and one is sure: those are always going to be higher.

Then are we able to talk about great quality if expectations always grow? Yes. Thus every time when we improve something, we create higher quality. Of course, with a time the quality is dropping, so the answer is: never stop develop. How? I will present it in 6 easy steps.

1) Define your goals
Quality management includes many patches, such an improving processes by reducing waste, efficient customer service or lowering costs. Only you will know what is quality for you and your customers.

2) Analyse past and present
To improve present is not enough to see what we have right now. Compare, find the differences. It will help you to see wrong or maybe good decisions, which you took.

3) Plan how to improve
You know already your goals and situations. Think how to reach your goals, open your mind. Create few scenarios and choose can be best.

4) Do
Well, I cannot add anything here, just ACT what you have planned!

5) Check
Measure if your effects are right with your goals and your plan. If yes- well done! No? Then start from the beginning, maybe try smaller steps.

6) Repeat!
Without repeat previous 5 steps we will not be able to change our quality for better.

But quality exist not only in companies, it has an influence also in our personal lives. Try, do 6 steps above and check how quality you are. We are working for better life, better life makes us motivated to work. We see the great effects. It’s how I call: The Quality Life Cycle!

Bringing Creativity and Business Value Together

The skill to Innovate has always been a most valuable asset when it comes to business. However, it seems the rise of User-Centered Design and the concern for creating Value in our solutions has brought our awareness on this matter to an all-time high.

Innovation demands a deep understanding of human needs, and an ability to think outside the box in an increasingly competitive world. It seems to be the key to a successful project, and it is quickly becoming a necessity for employees no matter what field they are in.

How Your Business Changes the Way People Live

To Innovate is to understand socio-cultural progress and find new creative new solutions to current needs.

We must understand this is different to analysing trends: these are visible and are already happening. Our goal as an Innovative Business is to instead find new possibilities that are consistent to the evolution our socio-cultural surroundings, and create products and services that can better satisfy current needs.

Innovation-driven solutions have the power to redefine dominant meanings and values, by having a disruptive impact on the industry, which is what we see as breakthroughs.

Innovation is essential to every business, because the power to change a product’s meaning and the possibility attribute a new value to people’s lives is what motivates change, and ultimately, what pushes society forward.
