Article of the Week - High-Reliability Organization
A few days ago I learned from the Quality Group, Inc the term High-Reliability Organization and how it can be related to Operational Excellence.

I did a bit of a search and it was interesting to learn more about the concept. So, I decided to share one of the articles that describes the term.

Design of high reliability organizations in health care


Do you think that this is a term that has potential in the food and beverages sector?
