Why are The Basic Quality Improvement Tools so Powerful?

All processes generate data and that data can help us better understand our processes so that we can make informed decisions on how to improve or “fix” them. If we use data display tools, those tools help present the data in the form of a “picture” that provides valuable clues about what is happening with the process and its outcomes. Quality Improvement Fundamentals focuses on gathering data and using that data with eight powerful data display tools. The eight tools all use display techniques that literally turn the data into pictures.
