« Quality is not tested, but built » This saying is decades old, but many organizations today are either ignorant of its truth, or attempt to ignore it. The author reminds us that quality is not something added at the end of product creation like spreading frosting on a cake; it must be a part of the creation process from the very beginning. Organizations that build quality products from inception are able to dedicate their resources to innovating their next opportunities. Those that build poor quality products must use their resources responding to unhappy customers and repairing defective products. While the correct choice seems obvious, many still don’t get it.
