IMPROVE YOUR OUTCOMES - RESPECT YOUR QUALITY MANAGER LIKE YOUR DOCTOR Quality managers and doctors use similar skill sets. So why do you listen to your doctor with respect and dismiss your Quality Professional? Root Cause Analysis - Just as doctors diagnose illnesses, QPs diagnose problems within processes, systems, or products. Both use various tools and techniques to identify the root causes of issues. Preventive Action - Doctors focus on preventive medicine to keep patients healthy. QPs keep your QMS healthy by implementing preventive measures to avoid defects or failures in processes and products. Continual Improvement - Both aim ...

RESPECT YOUR QUALITY MANAGER LIKE YOUR LAWYER. It has struck me more than once how, as a quality professional, I needed to think and act like a lawyer. Quality professionals are a lot like lawyers to the people they serve. Lawyers give legal advice to clients based on their experience and expertise in the law. QPs give advice to organizations based on their experience and expertise in Quality. They both give advice everyone wants to hear - until they hear the price. Lawyers help you avoid jail, quality professionals help you avoid defects - and sometimes jail. Lawyers ensure clients don’t end up as fodder for the next episode of “Law ...
