Quality control

My company's quality initiative has given me a t-shirt that doesn't fit, a polo shirt made out of fraying fabric (never yet worn), a travel mug with the handle falling off, a statistical program that uses the wrong equations at times, and is itself named on a willful misrepresentation of the normal distribution.

Draw your own conclusions.

Didn't they just purchase your previous employer?

Did they jettison the wrong crowd?

Have you gotten a feeling of deja-DilBert?

Well, let's just say that the failure of various quality initiatives to actually assure quality is not unique to any one company. Quality often means "what you can get away with" instead of "good" on any objective sort of standard.
