The 21st century: The Century of Quality

On his Quality Handbook Juran predicted that “The 20th century will be remembered as the Century of Productivity, whereas the 21st century will come to be known as the Century of Quality”(Juran, 1999)

He was so right about it!
It is coming..., 

There is another quote by Harry Truman:
  • There is nothing new in the world except the history you do not know

Since the Pyramids of Egypt, there is evidence of the use of Quality Control tools

It is time for applying it to real life problems, snd make it a habit.

" We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit."

Aristotle 384BC-322BC

There you go!
