Session: "Quality Management during COVID time"
By Mike Hoss
"During COVID many businesses had to shut down or work with reduced staff, however, when it comes to safety and quality, shutting down is not an option. While lack of safety could have immediate consequences, lack of quality could have long term consequences. Quality professionals now must become a lot more innovative with means and methods of quality management. In this presentation, I will share some alternative methods we use at Southern California Edison managing quality in the field."
