About the Program

Project Management,  Quality Management, and Domain Knowledge: A Crowning Achievement in a Dental Office

When a dentist designs and creates a crown for a patient’s tooth, is it a project with a unique outcome? Or is it a repeated process that can be monitored by quality tools? The presenters will show how a small custom manufacturing job – creating a crown – falls at the intersection of project management, quality management, and domain knowledge. Even though project management is oriented toward a unique outcome, and quality management is oriented toward continuous processes, the similarities between the approaches will be highlighted. This presentation will illustrate how basic project management principles can be applied to small projects.
