More than any other subject of interest to business people the world over in the past decade, Quality has become a focal point of activity. But unfortunately, the most reliable and accurate measure of that "elusive" attribute, namely, the Cost of Quality, is still unclear in a lot of people's minds. The Quality profession has always been about improving processes, products and services. From TQM to PDCA to Six Sigma, all Quality methodologies are focused on eliminating defects and the root cause of those defects. It involves products that satisfy your customers, running processes at greater efficiencies, producing less waste and increasing business productivity. All of this, of course, is based on the fact that these processes are driving financial benefits. If it didn't make sense financially, would you still do it? In some cases you might, but as a rule of thumb you can't sustain a business unless you bring in revenue and produce a profit.
