The ROI of an Effective Quality Management System*

*June 2012 study by the Center for Economic and Business Research

"As more and more businesses view the quality function as an enterprise-wide responsibility, employee ownership, engagement and accountability will increase.  But most of all - the company's value, as seen through the eyes of the customer, will soar!

​Companies who use their quality department as a disparate function with the purpose of preparing the quality system documentation to display for the auditors, can no longer survive.  This is especially true when quality escapes or failures are susceptible to the virtual world."

-- Kathy Wishnew

"Quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in.  It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for.  A product is not quality because it is hard to make and costs a lot of money, as manufacturers typically believe.  This is incompetence.  Customers pay only for what is of use to them and gives them value.  Nothing else constitutes quality."

-- Peter F. Drucker

-- Tom Peters

“Most Business Processes Are 90% Waste and 10% Value-Added Work."
