Quality and Perfection
Delivering what has been asked of in the most efficient manner.
Any product and service without quality doesn’t satisfy the customer. This quality of work done varies from individual to individual. Quality control is a process implemented to ensure a certain standard is being maintained. Peter Drucker, the very renowned management consultant said, “If you can’t measure, you can’t manage it.” Identifying what to measure, then measuring it and finally figuring scope of improvement are key steps for quality control. Healthy amount of perfection, coming from perfectionists in the workplace could turn out to spearhead the strive towards excellence. However, extreme perfectionism can turn problematic, hindering productivity. Flawlessly completing a thoroughly researched and rechecked work might win you accolades on that one but could lead to missing on another deadline or satisfactory work on the other. It is important to be able to complete all tasks at hand delegated to an individual rather than obsessing and trying to perfect one of them. Finishing up all the work by the deadline with good effort is what proves efficiency.
