Quality Management in the Boardroom Drives Innovation According to Magline


Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2017 -- Magline, the leader in innovative solutions in the material handling industry, asserts innovation starts in the boardroom. Bill Joseph, Vice President of Sales at Magline, suggested recently at ErgoExpo that support from top executives plays a crucial role in the long-term effectiveness of quality, far beyond project funding. Long-term executive sponsorship results in top-down support, executive voice, and sustained resources, which are the three elements that quality needs to thrive.

Joseph explained to gain executive support, quality leaders typically need a compelling event. LNS recently published an e-book which characterized such an event as "a business influence or pressure that forces action or response, with a defined date and business owner."

Magline is walking the walk of innovation having rolled out major innovative products: Magliner LiftPlus and Magliner Hand Truck with Glyde technology in 2016 with more innovations to be introduced throughout 2017.

Quality leaders are increasingly challenged by a volatile business environment including rapidly changing global markets, the emergence of disruptive technologies, new and often daunting regulations. Combined with the impact of social media, aging quality management practices have struggled mightily to keep pace with the accelerating level of change, largely due to underinvestment at the corporate level.
