Last month we introduced a new alliance between SCORE and our ASQ Phoenix chapter. We launched our alliance with a hour plus presentation on Order to Cash and how it is critical for all businesses the same as continuous improvement. It was very well received and SCORE is looking at our chapter as a new/expanding partner with more presentations on how Quality will support businesses to succeed and grow in todays and future environments. Upcoming topics are going to be a spectrum but reinforce more that quality has and always will be a part of any business, no matter the size.
