Implementing a Company Wide Quality Strategy 880328
Moving a company forward to meet the challenges of a changing and dynamic market requires a considerable amount of self-evaluation if long term success is to be guaranteed. There is no simple solution. Much to the disappointment of some purists, the true challenge for the U.S. auto industry is in balancing the long term with the all important short term measures of performance.
