Quality is nice. Good service is essential. But you don't manage until you measure.

Ironically while few vendors will acknowledge it, vendors whose product/services are being measured by customers invariably perform better and more consistently.

Good back-to-basics article, John.

When I offer equipment for sale, I insist that the prospect understand and evaluates the value proposition of the equipment desired. This is the only way to get a full understanding and expectation of profit margin from that equipment in the coming years
