Course Overview

What is Quality? Quality is defined as a “Product that delivers on what it is designed for” or “Product that conforms to standard or requirement”. But quality is more than “Making a Good Product”, according to Harvard Business Review its also defined as “Delivering on what the Customer Wants”.

Consumers’ priorities and perceptions change over time, and consumers particularly millennials are increasing buying services or products that embrace sustainability.

In this course, learners will learn how to identify the possibility of improving quality (environmental, social and economic) by exploring the business value stream using Lean methods and tools and delivering business value using the Green Business Model.
