We frequently seem to be in a race to lower costs and too often the way we choose to do this by lowering quality. The questions gets asked “how much lower can we bring our quality down and not lose customers?”.
What if we flip the thought process and increase quality to lower costs? By increasing quality, we don’t have as many mistakes, we don’t have as many stops and starts and we can create a workflow that is more efficient.
When we increase quality it’s easier to project future needs and therefore inventory management is easier (and more affordable).
When we increase quality we can have more focus on success and less on fixing failures and in the long run that reduces costs.
Rather than lowering quality to reduce costs, look to increase quality to reduce costs and see how it positively affects your bottom line.
Have a great day!
