Quality Improvement & Performance Management

About quality improvement and performance management: Quality improvement is the use of a deliberate and defined improvement process and the continuous and ongoing effort to achieve measurable improvements. Performance management uses data for decision-making, by setting objectives, measuring and reporting progress toward those objectives.

Customer focus: Customer focus addresses how an organization listens to the voice of its customers, builds customer relationships, determines their satisfaction, and uses customer information to improve and identify opportunities for innovation or improvement.
