35 Examples of Quality

        posted by , February 27, 2013

Quality is to business what gravity is to the universe.

But what is quality? Most of us have an idea in our head about quality. It's something that doesn't break. It's an expensive brand. It's air that's not poisonous.

Definition of Quality

Quality is the merit of something. A product, service, method or experience is high quality if it is fit for purpose.

The words fit for purpose are key to understanding the business definition of quality. The purpose of air is breathing. Therefore, fit for purpose air is healthy.
