Inside Quality Digest Live for Sept. 21, 2018

Welcome home!

Published: Monday, September 24, 2018 - 11:59

IMTS was a blast, but it was great to be back home in lovely Northern California this week. On this episode of QDL, we covered the skills that workers need and the innovations that organizations want. Plus, we brought you a live interview with author Mark Graban, and one on tape from Burt Mason of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence captured at IMTS. Let’s take a look:

“Only 20 Percent of Employees Have Skills Needed for Their Current Roles and Future Careers”

Adapting to the coming digital transformation means that organizations must hire, train, and motivate workers in a whole new way. Gartner research indicates that companies can best do this by identifying and developing so-called “connected learners.”

“Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Among Discussion Topics at World Standards Week 2018”

World Standards Week starts on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018, with an event in Washington, DC. This annual gathering, hosted by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), brings together developers and users; this year they consider standardization through the framework of innovation.

Interview: Mark Graban

Graban is the author of the new book, Measures of Success: React Less, Lead Better, Improve More (Constancy, 2018). In this interview, he talks about what’s changed in the industry over the years, why managers need some statistical understanding, and his take on quality within healthcare.

Interview: Burt Mason

We interviewed Mason of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence at IMTS last week. He has attended every IMTS since 1970, and offers a rich perspective on how this show specifically, and manufacturing in particular, have grown up and changed during that time.

Our next episode of Quality Digest Live comes to you next Friday, Sept. 28, 2018. You can watch either via our home page or our dedicated player page. See you then!
