E-Learning During Social Distancing: Quality is Key
By Ranjini Jois, MetaCog Solutions. April 2020.
The recent worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 is a wake-up call for supply chain management professionals across all regions & industries. While it is proving to be a challenge to source essential supplies everywhere, there is a bigger need to ensure production and availability of medical equipment, test kits and PPEs in monumental numbers. It is also of highest priority that we equip the front-runners of our battle with the pandemic (medical professionals, scientists, pharmacists, law enforcers etc) with the highest quality armour.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has ignited a worldwide scramble for masks, gowns, ventilators, testing kits, much of it made in China, which is attempting to recast its image as the source of the virus to the leader in the fight against it. But that narrative is threatened by a major problem: quality control” reports LA Times journalist Alice Su.
This is not just a China problem. More than ever, quality control is of utmost importance now. Every organization should streamline quality standards and processes across all manufacturing industries. Stringent training procedures must be put in place for all employees. In the rush to manufacture huge quantity of products to feed high demand, quality should not be compromised. Lives of millions of people and enterprises are at stake.
Henry Ford once said “Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” He could not be more right even decades later. This is not the time to explore shortcuts. This is the best time to put your training gear in full speed and take advantage of affordable distance learning.
