A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on business, excellence, good, justice, and people

Excellence is a process, not just an outcome. Sure, we have to hold out for high standards in the products or services we provide. The goods must be more than "good enough." But so must our approach - you know, our methodology, the way we do business and deal with people. How could the ends be considered excellent if we can't be proud of the means?

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on knowledge, schools, sharing, society, thinking, and wealth

We've got to start thinking of school as a lifelong process. That's the only way we'll keep abreast and be able to share in the wealth of the new "knowledge society."

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on business, choice, quality, and time

As consumers we get more demanding all the time. We want better quality. We want it faster. And cheaper. Plus, we want more choices. Whoever comes along that can satisfy all these 'wants' gets our business.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on accidents, achievement, conscience, ethics, excellence, money, talent, and technology

We can't achieve excellence through talent alone. Or merely by making technological improvements. We can't even buy our way to excellence, no matter how much money we have available to spend. More dollars will never do it. We have to develop a strong corporate conscience. Ethical muscle. And that doesn't happen by accident either.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on courage and people

When you see people with "the right stuff," those who choose the right over the wrong or the "iffy," let them know you're proud of them. Encourage the courageous, so they'll have the will to carry on.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on ethics and funny

Ethical dilemmas have a way of sneaking up on a person. If something smells funny, stay away from it. Or help get rid of it.
