Stability leads to Instability - The Need for QMS

It's smooth sailing until the real estate market crashes.  It's all good until you take your hands off the steering wheel, the boom.

We have always seen that cycle.  In periods of high stability and growth we always think, "don't worry it's on cruise control, it can't go wrong."  But that is exactly when it all unravels.  

Why does this happen? Why does stability lead to instability?  It's in our nature, when we feel things are going well, we change the discipline that got us there.  We may get sloppy, we may get overconfident, call it hubris.

To circumvent the stability/instability cycle, some type of minimum level of discipline is required.  Thats where we found value in implement quality management systems.  It's keeps us on our toes, it make sure we execute in a disciplined manner.  

Our goal was to be rock solid, so we went all in.  We are certified to AS9100, ISO 13485, ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 9000.  We did this because each system has it's unique requirements that benefit in different ways.  At the end of the day all the benefits lead to stability for our our customers, employees, owners and vendors.

Live Long and Be Stable
