The 12-Steps of Operational Efficiency
How Aligning of Operations and Quality Assurance Can Drive Down Costs While Improving Efficiency.
Presented by Mike Hughes and Steve Cammarn, Ph.D., EAS Independent Consultants.
Operations and Quality Assurance departments often operate in opposition.
Their different goals lead to different approaches to doing business. After all, Operations is tasked with making as much stuff as efficiently and profitably as possible while QA must ensure that all products meet quality requirements. All too often, their disjointed efforts seem to result in conflict.
Join EAS experts, Mike Hughes and Steve Cammarn, for a look at how Operations and QA can better align towards their true shared common goal, that of providing quality products that help consumers. Learn a 12-step process to improving Operational efficiency without sacrificing quality. It sounds simple, but it isn’t easy.
What are the 12-steps of Operational efficiency and how can you incorporate them into your business? Join EAS on March 22, 2022 at 1pm eastern.
