Ep 70 – Matt Sands & The Importance of Quality and Continuous Improvement During Downturn

Matt Sands joins us as we discuss continuous improvement and quality and their importance when the oil and gas industry in a downturn. Don’t do the wrong things righter!

Quality shouldn’t be something else that costs you money.  Quality is getting your processes and procedures on paper and doing what you say you’re going to.  This is important anytime, but especially during a downturn when you might be facing a shut down.  Having your procedures in places helps to track everything from how much time a paper sat on someone’s desk for approval to waste to rework.  If you have a quality management program in place, you can track exactly where your money is spent and where you can cut back or do better.  Cushioning the bottom dollar when business is booming helps when a downturn comes.  If you don’t have one in place during a downturn, a quality management program will help you scale back exactly where you are able.  Yes, it’s money you have to spend up front on a consultant to help you, but it’s money well spent and that you’ll not only make back, but be able to track how you made it back.  Continual improvement is strategically names; business should always strive to improve, continuously.  A good quality management program helps that improvement along.
