why focus on process
Why Focus on Process?
  • The process management premise:
    • The quality of a system is highly influenced by the quality of the process used to acquire, develop, and maintain it.
  • This premise implies focus on processes as well as on product.
    • This is a long-established practice in manufacturing.
    • Belief in this premise is visible worldwide in quality movements in manufacturing and service industries, e.g., ISO standards.

never used!

Why am I

being pulled?

beautiful, and

you can’t hide!


I could have

been a

contender if I

had maturity
