Presentation Abstract

How do we know if we are developing high quality information that meets the needs of our customers? What can we do to measure the quality and usability of the content? What measurements can we use after the information is in the customers’ hand? What measurements can we use before the information is published? What can we do to determine if the processes we use result in quality? Actually just what do we mean by Quality in the first place? Learn methods you can use to measure the quality of your information.
