quality; program adopted; management strategy; feedback element


Quality, claimed and emphasized by the political decision makers in the system, is a rather
abstract concept and is therefore confused with quantity. The definitions of quality are numerous, but
the strategies for its implementation in an inertial system are far from proposing applicable solutions
with immediate effect. Some such measures are invoked in our study, some even have an obvious
personal note.
