Frustrated with Coatings Quality?

coatings nace niicap Jul 22, 2019

If you're a Quality Manager at an industrial coatings contractor and frustrated by your Quality program, I feel your pain... Quality Manager is a super-tough position. I think the toughest right behind Safety Manager, to be totally honest.

Every company I've ever been a part of, whether as owner or employee, very few people ever took responsibility for Quality - my favorite excuse is when people blame the customer; they didn't give us enough time, enough money, etc. I've even had a manager who was so scared of accountability say "Starting a quality program would bankrupt the company." Crazy!

Why is it so tough?

  • Because everyone assumes Quality just happens - and that is super-frustrating.
  • Because I've never met anyone who enjoyed having to tell people they've made a mistake. It's hard to come across as positive in every case when you're correcting a person or a process unless you've been trained to do it.
  • Because in most companies, Quality is a priority and not a value. priorities change daily and that's exactly what we see - quality is fine until there's a time crunch or a non-standard job and then it gets dropped right to the bottom of the list
