Scandal! Waste! Jobs! All that and more... but without the exclamation points

Published: Monday, February 13, 2017 - 08:20

Do we have another automotive cheating scandal? Could helping our economy be as easy as just paying our vendors faster? Last week’s Quality Digest Live contained answers to those questions and a discussion between myself and my co-host, Quality Digest publisher Mike Richman. During the show, we covered:

Speed Leadership Workshop With Professor Bob Emiliani

Technology changes quickly. Products change quickly. Management has to keep up. This course could help.

Off Script: A reader asks if automation really is to blame for job loss.

Tune in this coming Fri., Feb. 17, 2017, for our next show. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
