"Ceasar has developed a business model called QCEP – the focus in detail on Quality, Customer, Employee, and Product. This business model combines several quality programs within the industry and redefines them, focusing on the processes of the sales and services procedures and results, as well as the on the employees and their specific roles (and goals) in the organization.
An annual management seminar involving all key corporate members teaches employees the concept of QCEP. A strong focus is placed on how to make decisions and solves problems based on the collection of data, measurement, analysis, definition, and follow-up. These skills improve the effectiveness of employee’s daily operations and allow the corporation to meet its overall goals."
