Quality in Unexpected Places: Books and Movies!

Continuing ASQ CEO Paul Borawski’s March discussion about¬†finding quality in unexpected places, one of the places I LOVE to see quality problems and solutions appear are in works of fiction – books and/or movies. Although I’ve encountered many examples over the past several years, I just started keeping track of these about a year ago on my Quality in Fiction & Drama list.

The ones I have so far are: Unstoppable (movie), Bad Luck and Trouble (book), and The Story of B (book). I didn’t include Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (book) because it just didn’t move me – but your experience may have been different, and if so, I’d like to hear about it.

Do you have more examples to add? I would love to include them. Just post a synopsis of the quality-related book or movie, your name, and a web site where people can find out more about you or your business to the comments on this page, and I’ll update the list with your new info. THANKS!
