Breakthrough moment

“In 1990 I attended a conference on continuous quality improvement, and it was one of those rare moments when you realize the potential of an idea. Ever since that day, I’ve been really excited about how we can use quality improvement strategies and tools to drive organizational performance. It’s been a key element of my leadership platform ever since.”
