How do these practices lead to accomplishing the three Leadership Through Quality objectives? Discuss the meaning of Quality is a race without a finish line. What is its significance to Xerox, or to any organization? How do the various definitions of quality discussed in this chapter relate to the quality practices at Gerber?
