Is "Good" Enough?
Run time: 3 Minutes
Combining dynamic graphics, captivating music, and striking images, this eye-opening motivational meeting opener challenges viewers to re-think their standards of quality, safety, and excellence.
We are all-too-familiar with recent stories in the news about the world and products that we are asked to buy. Software programs are released with known defects, food products are shipped with acceptable amounts of "foreign matter", toys are manufactured with an eye on profit over safety.
99.9% is often considered as close to perfect as possible. But if 99.9% is really "good enough", then each year (for example):
- 200,000 tax returns will be lost by the IRS
- 4,266 newborns will leave the hospital with the wrong parents
- 126 million pieces of mail will be mishandled by the post office
The consequences of poor quality or lax safety which may be deemed "statistically insignificant" are only insignificant to those unaffected by them. This program explores the 0.1% result, if 99.9% is "good enough".
