When under pressure, It is often too easy to get carried away with the temptation to compromise quality, And that always end in tears.

Be the change you seek.

If and When Quality Standards are set high in an organisation, and in projects from the begining, and maintained throughout, there are many benefits to be reaped by everyone.

It is not easy to hold people accountable for the standards set. But, that is what standards are for and leadership is all about.
