What are Quality Minutes®?
The versatile and educational “Quality Minutes” series from Juran Institute is a collection of true case examples that illustrate and reinforce how breakthrough performance improvements were achieved in a wide variety of organizations. Covering wide-ranging libraries of interest, each video segment dramatizes the actual planning, implementation and results of breakthrough concepts. The examples can be used with individuals and groups of all sizes in many different ways to bring real world examples to life for employees at all levels.
Easy to use, each 90-second video story stimulates discussion, brainstorming, and creativity; demonstrates how companies used process improvement tools and techniques to solve problems and achieve six sigma results. Each real-world example introduces and encourages thoughtful examination and the learning of proven processes and results. They can be used for opening meetings, maintaining continuity during breaks in large or small conferences, conducting project team reviews, steering teams, seminars, and strategic planning retreats. Typically, only one segment will be used at the right opportunity with subsequent examples during follow-on sessions.
