Quality Gurus

(PR NewsChannel) / May 6, 2015 / VALLADOLID, Spain 

1Mr. Francisco Rafael Jimenez Villarroel, a quality management process specialist, gives a speech about quality in real life. Mr. Francisco Rafael Jimenez Villarroel points out that, throughout human history, quality philosophies or cultures have been developed, some of which have stood out due to their satisfactory results. However, good results cannot always be achieved everywhere.

In our opinion, we agree with Mr. Francisco Rafael Jimenez Villarroel’s philosophy, as we understand that, in order to be able to understand quality, it is important to know the great masters who created the different philosophies and related tools, as well as the environment in which they were developed.

According to the interpretation of Mr. Francisco Rafael Jimenez Villarroel, some of these Masters, also called Quality Gurus, became known after the Second World War. Most of them are American but the impact of their philosophies and concepts helped to build the renaissance of Japan as an industrial power so they could later be transferred to Europe and America.

The opinion of several experts, including Mr. Francisco Rafael Jimenez Villarroel, mentions Mr. PHILIP CROSBY as one of the greatest gurus of that era.

He mentions that quality is free, defining it as “fulfilment of requirements” and indicating that 100% fulfilment equals zero defects. He establishes that, in organisations that do not work with a plan that covers quality, wasted labour and materials can reach from 20% to 40%. He promotes the 14 steps to manage quality in another book called “Quality without Tears”.

Mr. Francisco Rafael Jimenez Villarroel has been one of the eminences that has most highlighted the book by Mr. Crosby “Quality is Free”, known for its motto of ZERO DEFECTS.

Philip Crosby introduced the improvement programme while trying to educate companies so they would focus their efforts on the need to achieve quality. The aim was to eliminate a large number of inspections by doing things right the first time.

“Total quality means meeting the requirements, where the system is prevention, zero defects is a standard and the price measurement is non-compliance”.

As a business philosopher, Philip B. Crosby has 40 years of management experience.

Conferences and lectures by Philip Crosby provide a thoughtful and stimulating discussion about the role that executives must play in order to make their employees, suppliers, companies and themselves successful. Using real case studies, illustrated with applicable anecdotes, he provides a real context. He enjoys the opportunity to respond to questions and comments from the audience.

As an author, Philip Crosby has published thirteen books, which have become best sellers. His first business book, “Quality is Free”, has been credited as the spearhead of the quality revolution in the United States and Europe. It has sold over 2.5 million copies, both hardback and paperback, and has been translated into 15 different languages. His most recent book about leadership, “The Absolutes of Leadership” was published in 1996.

Philip Crosby was born in Wheeling, Virginia on 18 June 1926. Between taking part in the Second World War and the Korean War, Philip Crosby began his work as a quality professional in 1952 at a medical school. Philip Crosby’s career began in a chain production line where he decided that his goal would be to teach a management style where preventing problems would be better than being good at solving them. He worked for Crosley from 1952 to 1955; Martin-Marietta from 1957 to 1965; and  ITT from 1965 to 1979. While working as a quality manager for Martin-Marietta, he created the concept of zero defects. During his 14 years as Corporate Vice-President of ITT, he worked with many industrial and service companies around the world, deploying his pragmatic philosophy and finding that it was applicable around the world.
