Sandy Carson, Marketing Communications & Events Manager, Pilgrim Quality Solutions, an IQVIA company

“Quality isn’t an act, it’s a habit.”

Aristotle said it first. But it doesn’t take a philosopher or a scientist to recognize that excellence doesn’t happen overnight.

Very well. The practice of continual improvement starts with a unified, enterprise-wide commitment to ongoing best efforts and to process improvement.
