Inside Quality Digest Live for March 3, 2017

The truth about trade, gates of wisdom, and portable coordinate metrology—we got around last week

Published: Monday, March 6, 2017 - 16:55

When we put together each episode of QDL, we strive to offer a balanced mix of topics that represents our weekly perspective on all things quality. Sometimes we hit, and sometimes we miss... but this week truly ran the gamut.

Here’s a closer look at what we covered:

“Why U.S. Trade With Mexico and China Could Not Be More Different”

Adams Nager of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation compares and contrasts the United States’ top two trading partners and reveals the distance between them—not only in terms of miles, but in ethics, too.

“The Three Gates”

Consultant and USC lecturer Khatera Sahibzada offers the example of a centuries-old Sufi saying that sheds light on how managers can better provide feedback.

“CMSC Corner: Keith Bevan”

In our regular segment featuring the leading figures in the world of 3D portable test and measurement, we chatted with Coordinate Metrology Society chairperson Keith Bevan about the group’s 2017 conference coming up in July.

Off-Script: Made in the USA?

Playing off his recent QD op-ed, Dirk asked me for my opinion on the pros and cons of “Made in the USA” branding—and also whether companies should be in business primarily to make profits or serve customers.

Tune in this coming Fri., March 10, 2017, for our next episode of Quality Digest Live. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
