Quality Is Free, Until It Isn't

Speaker: Tammo T. Wilkens, MBA, P.E., PMP, CSM

Title: University Instructor in Project Management / Author of the Microsoft Project Training Manual


November 12, 2022 

Presentation Description

In the 50s and 60s, when you bought a new car, it was customary to drive it for a month or so and then return it to the dealer with a punch list of 20 to 30 defects that needed fixing.  Those days are over. Nowadays, cars come with very few defects.  So, what happened?

This session will answer questions regarding the shift in quality in some industries, can we have too much quality, what are the costs of quality and how to minimize those costs?  We will explore how major companies might have different quality policies and why that is the case.  We will dive into various quality control tools in an interactive manner that gets attendees involved in using quality control tools..
