It’s More Than The Product: What We Love About Quality

Good, fast, cheap

These are three words that encompass entirely different meanings that ultimately depict the culture of your business. Unfortunately, obtaining all three of these values isn’t sustainable. A company that focuses on varying combinations of these words will tell you that certain combinations are more beneficial for them than others. For example, combining the terms good and cheap may equate to a high-quality product at a low cost; however, maybe the lead time of this project is incredibly off-putting and doesn’t meet your customer’s demands. Perhaps your business has toyed with the terms: fast and cheap. The fallback? There could be concerns with the quality of your product, a risk to your company’s reputation, and disappointed customers. Alternatively, your business might focus attention on the terms: good and fast, but after receiving a quote, you realize it’s much too expensive to produce and well out of your customer’s project budget. Now what?

Of course, there may always be reservations to your decision, yet ultimately, it’s critical for a business to decide which of these three words represents your culture the most.
