Improvement

« Back to Glossary Index

Fundamental changes that alter how work or activity is done, producing visible, positive differences in results related to historical norms, with a lasting impact. Improvement always requires change, but not all changes will result in improvement.  Improvement comes from action. It means doing something better from the viewpoint of the customer or other beneficiary. It’s sometimes referred to as “Quality Improvement.”  See “Change” for contrast.
