Practical & Insightful

Leady Quality provides practical step by step guide on how to improve quality in your organization. What was most impactful were how to improve the quality narrative & aligning the QA mandate with the company's strategic goals. The quotes and insight from industry leaders gave good perspective as well.

I started with the audio book with the intention to switch to the printed copy once it was delivered. Ronald's narration was lively and engaging so I completed the audiobook instead.

Listening to the final chapter was synonymous to watching the season finale of a really good TV series. Good ready highly recommend it.

Great book!

I love the book overall, is a great book for people in a leading position and for those who are aiming at being in one.

I'm really happy with the fact that intuitivly I was already apllying a lot of the concepts that are described in this book.

The only thing it was not cristal clear for me was the part about how to align QA efforts with the business objectives. I would have wish they expand a little bit more about that with some concrete examples.

Good read!

It start a bit like 'selling' the company at first, bit after a few chapters it hits the mark. As QA director it gave me valuable tips how to turn the ship called quality in the right direction, and more important how to get the required resources. It provided good input to base my management presentations on, helping me to clearly identify where we are and where we need to go to achieve business value.

A well written book and enjoyable to listen to!

I was surprised at how enjoyable this book is to listen to!

I loved the stories and the way it was spoken. It felt very easy to listen to and I smiled at times I wasn't expecting.
I enjoyed the quotes from individuals and stories from big companies, it feels reassuring to hear that even mega companies make mistakes and how they are rectified.

I felt the summaries at the ends of chapters were very useful too. A great and useful book!

This is a book for leaders!

I learned so much from Ron (who is an excellent narrator by the way!) and Owais - they did an excellent job researching the quality industry and condensing all their research into this short book. Highly recommend!
