Quality is Free

It's not a gift, but it's free. What costs money are the unquality things -- all the actions that involve not doing jobs right the first time. Quality is not only free, it is an honest to goodness profit maker. Every penny you don't spend on doing things wrong, over or instead becomes half a penny right on the bottom line ... What does making quality certain mean? Getting people to do all the worthwhile things they ought to be doing anyway. -- Phillip Crosby

Many seeking professional engineering services mistakenly equate quality with quantity - the larger a consulting firm, the more expertise, quicker response and security one can expect from their efforts. This philosophy ignores the fact that many smaller firms don't want to be "all things to all people". To the contrary, they are often lead by individuals who saw quality and professional pride placed second to corporate profits while employed by larger firms. Many of today's best engineering professionals are driven by intangible goals with deeper satisfaction and reward from the delivery of a truly unique, quality service. The relative size of such organizations means only that they must serve fewer clients with the essence of many years of "whole job" experience not possible in larger firms which, by their very nature, promote their smartest, most capable quickly "out of the trenches".
