The Phil Crosby Workshop
Last month, we brought our company leaders from across the country together to talk about one very important topic: quality.
At Nationwide Power, we take the Phil Crosby approach to defining quality, whereas quality is simply conformance to requirements and the result of a carefully constructed cultural environment. In other words, we ensure quality and consistency by establishing processes and procedures that are closely adhered to throughout the service chain.
While delivering on quality is free, the price of non-conformance – or the price when quality standards aren’t met, can be quite costly. During our Phil Crosby seminar, our team focused on process refinement and ensuring a zero-defect system is in place. We look at quality as preventing defects or mishaps from ever occurring in the first place, rather than cleaning up messes or putting out fires after the fact.
Consider this: Have you worked or done business with a company that is constantly putting out the same fire over and over again? Examples may include incorrect product, out-of-stock product, missing deadlines, or pricing errors. Possibly the most relevant story of 2019 is what happened with Boeing and the 737 Max quality issues. After months, or even years, those same fires persist. This is due to a lack of effective processes, and as such, a lack of quality. The bottom line: the customer suffers.
The idea of creating standards and quality as a way to create customer success – this idea is deeply ingrained in the Nationwide Power company culture, from day one of onboarding, through continuing education for seasoned team members. Our entire team at Nationwide Power is committed to doing the job right the first time, every time.
As we look to 2020, not only do we intend to raise our internal bar for quality, but we challenge other service providers in our industry to do the same, for the benefit of all our customers.
