Trond's takeaway: Quality is a concept many instinctively would say they have a great handle on, but time and again, manufacturing consultants have uncovered through factory visits that they do not, whether they call it Quality, Agile or Lean. The processes that work are near timeless, but implementing them is unfortunately also a timeless task. Arguably, the productization of quality is coming and it will, like so many other things, also be tech enabled.
