Qualities of Customer-Focused Organizations

Performance Measurement

Abstract The best quality practices integrate performance metrics with the voice of the customer. While a recent survey found that most businesses are using a Lean Six Sigma program which they regularly update, it found that only about one in eight used customer feedback consistently to rate the effectiveness of their core processes. A process management system allows an organization to develop process-driven outcome measures, align processes with customer needs, establish governance and accountability, and connect business management strategies to processes.
