Heard on Campus: Jim Buckman at the Quality Issues Forum

"As people in universities, we preserve the knowledge and wisdom of the past. We help discover knowledge for a brighter future. We develop leaders for a brighter future. That's it. If we're doing something that doesn't connect to those ideas pretty directly, I think we should ask 'Why? Why are we doing it?'"

-- Jim Buckman, Co-Director, Joseph M. Juran Center for Leadership in Quality, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota, in a speech titled "Sustaining the Quality Advantage: Your Role in the Revolution," speaking Wednesday, April 26 at Penn State's annual Quality Issues Forum, sponsored by the executive vice president and provost and the Office of Planning and Institutional Assessment to recognize 38 teams and approximately 280 individuals from 13 University units for their contributions to innovation and improvement at Penn State.
