MG 1401 TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT 1.Introduction
TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENTTQM is an enhancement of traditional way of doing businessTQM is for the most part common sense.Analyzing the three words, we have• Total : made up of the whole• Quality : degree of excellence a product or service provides• Management : act, art, or manner of handling, controlling, directing, etc.,Therefore, TQM is the art of managing the whole to achieve excellence.ie., to manage in a total quality way.
TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENTFoundations-Hard- management necessities - four parts of a new model for TQM- 4 Ps - improving Performance through better Planning and management of People and Processes in which they workCore- is Performance measures. This core still needs to be surrounded byFoundations- Soft-outcoms- 3Cs• Commitment - to quality and meeting the customer requirements• Communications - of the quality message and recognition of the need to change the• Culture - of most organizations to create total Quality These are the S which must encase the H of other three Ps.

TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENTThus, TQM is defined as both• a philosophy and a set of guiding principles that represent the foundation of continuously improving organizations• It is the application of quantitative methods and human resources to improve all the processes within the organization and exceed customer needs now and in the future• It integrates fundamental managing techniques, existing improved efforts and technical tools under the disciplined approach

QualityIntroduction: The initial thrust in the Industrial scene was to “ Produce and Flourish” and subsequently, it was to “ Produce Quality and Flourish” and then “ Assure Quality and Flourish” and now “ Manage Quality and Flourish”In the LPG era- (Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization) It is mandatory for Indian Industries to incorporate Quality in each and every business activity Quality has to be managed- it does not just happenFundamental parts of the recipe for success• Understanding and commitment by senior management• Effective leadership• Teamwork• Good process management e.g., - watch -depends on wearer, - jewelry- impression of wealth, - timepiece- data including date, - hospital- professionalism
Quality - definitionwe must define Quality in a way that it is useful to the management,we must recognize the need to include in the assessment of Quality- the true requirements of the customer - the needs of the expectationsQuality then, is simply meeting the customer requirements• expressed in many ways by other authors• we are not able to give an unique definition for Quality - because it is not a phenomena, - it involves- a lot of - diverse parameters - diverse set of people - therefore we have a - diverse set of definitions - when the expression Quality is used, we usually think in terms of an excellent product or service that fulfills or exceeds our expectation.
Quality - definition-these expectations are based on the intended use and the selling price. e.g., plain steel washer & chrome plated steel washer-when a product surpasses our expectation we consider that Quality. Quality can be quantified as follows: Q = P / E, where Q- Quality, P- Performance & E- ExpectationsIf Q is greater than 1.0, then the customer has a good feeling about the product or servicePerception: the organization determines performance the customer determines expectations
Quality - definition• a more definitive definition is given in ISO 9000:2000• “Quality is defined as the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfills requirement” - degree means that Quality can be used with adjectives such as poor, good, and excellent - inherent is defined as existing in something, especially as a permanent characteristics - characteristics can be quantitative or qualitative - requirement is need or expectation that is stated; generally implied by the organization, its customers, and other interested parties; or obligatorySituations• Doing the right things-(Products and services that reflect target features based on the needs of intended customers)• Doing the right things right- (using efficient processes)• Doing the right things right, right way- (both functional standards and customer’s expectations)• No single definition of Quality applies in all situations
Quality - definitionHelpful guides defined by Quality Gurus1.“Fitness for purpose or use” - Dr .Joseph. M. Juran (1954)2.“Quality should be aimed at the needs of the consumer, present and future” -W. Edwards Deming (1950)3.“The total composite product and service characteristics of marketing, engineering, manufacture and maintenance through which the product and service in use will meet the expectation of the customer” - Armand V. Feigenbaum4.“Conformance to requirement” -Philip B. Crosby(1979)5.“Quality is the minimum loss imparted by a Product to Society from the time the product is shipped”- - Dr. Genichi Taguchi (1960)6.“Quality is correcting and preventing loss, no living with loss” -HoshinOther definitions7. “Conformance to specifications and standards”8. “Productivity, competitive costs, on time delivery and the satisfaction of the customer”9. “Getting everyone to do what they have accepted to do, for the first time and every time”10. “What the customer say it is”
Dimensions of Quality (Measuring Quality)David A. Garvin’s NINE dimensions of quality1 Performance : Main, operating, primary, important characteristics, also called Functionality or Operationally -mileage given by an automobile -brightness of the picture -power consumed by a water pump -maximum speed, comfort in an automobile2 Features: Secondary characteristics, added features, enhancement, supplementing basic function -power steering -remote control -air conditioner in a car -free movie on a omni bus journey3 Conformance: Meeting specifications or industry standards, workmanship -conformance to requirements -an objective definition of quality4 Reliability: Probability that a product is performing its indented life and under stated conditions -consistency of performance over time -average time for the unit to fail
Dimensions of Quality (Measuring Quality)5 Durability : Useful life, including repair, before it physically deteriorates or it is replaced -conditions of use6 Service : Solve problems, compliance, easy to repair, easy to recondition, competence, courtesy, speed7 Response : Human to human interface, quick to attend customer’s complaint -courtesy of the dealer8 Aesthetics : Sensory characteristics -such as exterior finish -style -colour -smell -taste -feel etc.,9 Reputation :Past performance and other intangibles, recognized -such as being ranked first -brand image -goodwill
Dimensions of Quality (Measuring Quality) Other dimensions are: • Availability- measure of probability that the equipment is kept in working condition • Manufacturability- easy manufacturing, or service- includes design, process planning, finishing, assembly, packing and delivery Dimensions of quality Properties CharacteristicsMeasurable Non-measurable Functional Technical Psychologicalvariable attributes-size -colour -durability -aesthetics-weight -number -appealing-strength defectives-IQ, etc., -skills etc.,
Dimensions of Quality (Measuring Quality)• These dimensions are somewhat independent.• A product can be excellent in one dimension and average or poor in another.• Very few, if any, excel in all dimensions.• e.g., High quality cars in 1970s – Japanese were cited-based on the dimensions of reliability, conformance and aesthetics• Therefore, quality products can be determined by using a few of the dimensions of the quality• Marketing has the responsibility of identifying the relative importance of each dimension of quality• These dimensions are then translated into requirements for the development of a new product or improvement of an existing one.
Quality planning • In any organization quality planning is an essential activity that decides its success in the market place • should be formulated with customer satisfaction as the goal rather than financial or sales goals Traditional organization Planning Design Engineering Manufacturing Supply Sales & marketing Service Takes careIdentifies Design Prepares a Manufacture Supply To the customer of afterthe customer the detailed sales servicerequirement product Specification & process methodology The design and engineering department have to simultaneously work with Manufacturing department However, the traditional approach cannot respond to the customers demand quickly. So the interaction between all the departments is essential for an effective and successful quality planning
Quality planning A road map for quality planning as developed by Joseph M. Juran Activities Existing product and service Outputs Establish quality goals (create new design/idea from old one) List of quality goalsApply measurement throughout Identify ( the goals impacted) the customers List of customers (depending on the market potential) Determine the customer’s needs (Market research, input from technical expert Discover the customer needs and satisfaction) List of customer’s needs Develop product features (to achieve high product sales with quality, Optimize) Product designs Develop process features (concurrent engineering or simultaneous engineering, optimize the process) Process designs Establish process controls (prove that the process can produce the Product under operating conditions) Process ready to produce Transfer the plans to the operating forces (groups) Juran’s Quality Planning road map
Quality planningThe major tasks involved in the road map of quality planning comprise the following broad activities• Design practices: to build quality into product, to suit customer and market needs and requirements• Product and Process development: scaling up, commercial run, handing over of design• Measuring instruments and gauges: laboratory controls, calibration and standards, control of precision and accuracy of instruments• Tools, jigs and fixtures: their design, try out, evaluation, and certification prior to use in the shop• Quality control: procedure during production• Supplier quality: assurance
Quality planning• Field quality: assurance covering customer education, installation, commissioning and maintenance of hardware• Customer relations: assurance, monitoring of information to design, the changing needs of customers, their new requirements, new application ideas etc.,• Overall quality: assurance, audit of company• Systems of quality improvement: Project identification, project team, targets of results and time, resource mobilization, monitoring of progress, evaluation and control• Quality costs: measurement and analysis, to achieve the optimal product design• Working methods and procedures of planning: all stages right from design to delivery need to be documented as quality manuals
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)The concept of Cost Of Quality (COQ) has been around for many years• Dr. Joseph M. Juran included a section on COQ in his “Quality control handbook” in 1951• The American Society for Quality (ASQ) established the Quality Cost Committee under the Quality Management Division in 1961• Philip B. Crosby- popularized the use of COQ – in his book “Quality is free” in 1979 He has written as “Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it”• Several Current quality system standards ISO 9000, QS-9000, AS-9000 refer the use of COQ for quality improvementConcept of COQ : - the Costs due to the lack of quality or - the Costs to ensure quality is produced
Model of quality costs, strategic objectives and continuous improvement
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)Philip B. Crosby refers to the COQ as the-1. “price of conformance”- the prevention and appraisal costs2. “price of non-conformance”- the failure costs
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)- is the sum of the costs incurred by the company in preventing poor quality- the costs incurred to ensure and evaluate that the quality requirements are met, and- any other costs incurred as a result of poor quality being producedpoor quality is defined as non-value added activities- waste, errors or failures to meet customer needs and requirements- broken into three categories of PAFCOQ model is often referred as the PAF model on A ti pp en ra ev is Pr al Failure Internal, External
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)Prevention costs- refer to all activities specifically designed to prevent poor quality in products or services.- an investment to prevent failure to meet customer requirements or specifications and are associated with designing, installing, maintaining and auditing a quality system and related activities.- These actions are designed to prevent defects, failures or process wastes.- Elements can include statistical process control, quality training, quality system audits, supplier certification, determination of customer requirements and design reviews.
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)Appraisal costs are associated with measuring, evaluating or auditing products or services to assure conformance to quality standards and performance requirements.- an investment to prevent products or services that are defective in any way from reaching the customer.- Elements include receiving inspection, product testing and audits, test equipment calibration, monitoring service calls and customer satisfaction surveys.
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)Failure costs result from products or services not conforming to requirements or customer needs.- They represent a cost penalty incurred by an organisation because it has failed to meet quality standards. There are two types of failure cost:1.Internal failure costs - that occur prior to delivery or shipment of the product, or furnishing of a service, to the customer and frequently represent wastes.Elements in this category include scrap, rework, sorting, troubleshooting, excess inventory, activities that do not add value, wasted material or time
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)2.External failure costs - that occur after delivery of the product, and during or after the furnishing of a service, to the customer.They include the results of customer dissatisfaction, such as loss of market share and future custom opportunities.Elements in this category include returned goods, warranties, product recalls, loss of reputation, loss of repeat sales, liability insurance and complaint investigations.External failure costs are the most serious because they impact the customer and are often understated because they are difficult to quantify. They must receive priority attention
Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)Total quality cost is the sum of Prevention, Appraisal, & Failure.It is a key principle of quality costs that relatively small investments in prevention activities result in significant reductions in failure costs, both internal and external.Appraisal costs, such as product testing and inspection or excessive levels of signature approvals for purchase requisitions or loan approvals, likewise, can be expected to decrease as quality improves.

Quality costs - Cost of quality (COQ)Failure costs: costs associated with the product or service whichdid not meet the requirements and the product had to be fixed or replaced or the service had to be repeated• Internal failures • External failures -costs resulting from the failures found -when the customer finds the failure before the product or service reaches -do not include any of the customer’s personal the customer costs i.e., non-conforming products such as costs of scrap, rework, repair & r/c before reaching i.e., non-conforming after the the customer• (a) Design failure costs delivery to the customer inherent design inadequacies (a) Cost of investigations on customer which includes design corrective actions, complaints-or user service rework due to design changes, scrap due to design changes and production liaison costs (b) Returned goods replacements• (b) Purchase failure costs (c) Retrofit and recall costs-due to design purchased material rejection cost deficiency the parts are redesigned’ i.e., rejection disposition, replacement, recalled or retrofitted supplier corrective action, rework supplier (d) Warranty claims-repair costs, cleaning rejects, uncontrolled material losses. costs, price reduction negotiated• (c) Operation failure costs This covers major portion. (e) Liability costs-including liability costs associated with non-conforming insurance-claims –damages suffered discovered during the operation process (f) Penalty costs-according to contracts or during government rules, proven lack (g) Customer or user goodwill-dissatisfaction material review, during corrective actions, of the customer rework or repair, scrap costs, internal failure labour costs (h) Lost sales-due to quality problems, profit lost due to reduction in sales
Quality cost modelsCost per good unit of product cost 80 70 60 50 40 Optimal situation 30 20 10 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% Quality conformance 100% defective 0% defective
Optimum Quality costsThe PAF costs can be analyzed as shown in figure 0 100 ( Quality conformance, 100%)
Quality cost analysis• In the short term, there is a positive correlation between quality improvement and the cost of conformance and• a negative correlation between quality improvement and the cost non-conformance.In other words, an improvement in the quality of the products will lead to an increase in the cost of conformance that generated it.This is because an improvement in the quality level of a product might require• extra investment in R&D,• more spending in appraisal cost,• more investment in failure prevention and so on.But a quality improvement will lead to a decrease in the cost of nonconformance because1. fewer products will be returned from the customers,2. therefore less operating cost of customer support and3. there will be less internal rework.
Analysis techniques for quality costs• PAF costs varies with organizations and products• A costs have been budgeted in many companies• Studies reveal that F costs are several time the A costs• P costs are relatively low when comparing with the Total cost• Relationship between I-F and E-F costs is significant• The I-F cost point to a need for programs involved in manufacturing, planning and production• The E-F cost point to a need for programs involving product design and field of service• Hidden Quality cost – shown as iceberg floating in waterTechniques for cost estimation1.

Analysis techniques for quality costs• The techniques for analyzing quality costs are quiet varied• The most common techniques used are Trend and Pareto analysis• The objective of these techniques is to determine opportunities for quality improvement1. Trend analysis: involves simply comparing present cost levels to past levels- - can be accomplished by cost category, sub category, product, measurement base, index,

Objectives of Quality cost evaluation1. To quantify the size of the problem in a language that will have an impact on top management2. To identify the area of major opportunities for cost reduction3. To identify the opportunities for reducing customer dissatisfaction and associated threat to product salability4. The assessment of quality cost will provide information for major areas for potential improvement
Total Quality Management• TQM is the art of managing the whole to achieve excellence.• It is defined as “ a management philosophy of pursuing continuous improvement in each process (marketing, finance, design, engineering, production, customer service etc., ) through the integrated efforts of all individuals in the organization with a focus of meeting customer needs and organizational objectives”
Total Quality Management• It is a method by which management and employees can become involved in the continuous improvement of the production of goods and service.• It is a combination of quality and management tools aimed at increasing business and reducing losses due to useful practices
Integrated approach to TQM• IA Strategy Organization Leadership Structure Commitment TQM Managing Suppliers Customers People Systems Attitudes ISO 9000 Behavior (Standards) Involvement Empowerment
Basic concepts of Total Quality Management1. A committed and involved management to provide a long term top to bottom organizational support2. An unwavering focus on the customer, both internally and externally3. Effective involvement and utilization of entire workforce4. Continuous improvement of the business and production process (activities)5. Treating suppliers as partners6. Establish performance measures for the processes (activities)
Purpose of TQMThe purpose of TQM is to provide quality product to the customers which will in turn – increase productivity-lower cost with a higher quality product and lower price- competitive position in the market placeThis series of events will allow the organization to achieve the objectives of profit and growth with greater easeIn addition, the workforce will have job security which will create a satisfying place to work
Basic concepts of TQM1. Management commitment- the basic PDCA cycle- developed by Shewart : -Plan (drive, direct) -Do (deploy, support, participate) -Check (review) -Act (recognize, communicate, revise)2. Customer focus- Voice of customer- “Do it right, the first time and every time” to ensure customer satisfaction -Supplier partnership -Service relationship with internal as well as external customers -Non compromise in quality -Customer driven standards -Customer retention3. Employee (involvement) Empowerment -Training and motivation -Suggestion scheme -Measurement, recognition and reward -Teamwork- excellence teams -Union involvement

Principles of Total Quality Management• Total Quality Management has 10 basic principles.• They explain how it is implemented and the "rules" by which it operates.These are:1. Agree Customer Requirements (more than specifications)2. Understand and Improve Customer Supplier chains3. Do the Right Things4. Do things Right First Time5. Measure for success6. Continuous Improvement is the goal7. Management must lead8. Training is essential9. Communicate more effectively10. Recognize successful involvement
The eight key elements Of TQM• Total Quality Management is a management approach -originated in the 1950s -has steadily become more popular since the early 1980s.• Total Quality is a description of the - culture, attitude and organization of a company - strives to provide customers with products and services that satisfy their needs.• The culture requires quality in all aspects of the companys operations, with processes being done right the first time and defects and waste eradicated from operations.• To be successful implementing TQM, an organization must concentrate on the eight key elements:1. Ethics2. Integrity3. Trust4. Training5. Teamwork6. Leadership7. Communication8. Recognition
TQM- eight key elements-four groups• TQM has been coined to describe a philosophy that makes quality the driving force behind leadership, design, planning, and improvement initiatives.• For this, TQM requires the help of those eight key elements.• These elements can be divided into four groups according to their function.They are: I. Foundation - Ethics, Integrity and Trust. II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork & Leadership. III. Binding Mortar - Communication. IV. Roof - Recognition.
TQM- key elements Roof Binding mortarBuilding bricks Foundation Trust
I. Foundation - Ethics, Integrity and TrustTQM is built on a foundation of ethics, integrity and trust. - It fosters openness, fairness and sincerity and allows involvement by everyone. - This is the key to unlocking the ultimate potential of TQM. - These three elements move together, however, each element offers something different to the TQM concept.1. Ethics - is the discipline concerned with good and bad in any situation. - It is a two-faceted subject represented by organizational and individual ethics. - Organizational ethics establish a business code of ethics that outlines guidelines that all employees are to adhere to in the performance of their work. - Individual ethics include personal rights or wrongs.
I. Foundation - Ethics, Integrity and Trust2. Integrity - implies honesty, morals, values, fairness and adherence to the facts and sincerity.- The characteristic is what customers (internal or external) expect and deserve to receive. People see the opposite of integrity as duplicity. TQM will not work in an atmosphere of duplicity.3. Trust - is a by-product of integrity and ethical conduct. - without trust, the framework of TQM cannot be built.- fosters full participation of all members.- allows empowerment that encourages- pride ownership and it encourages commitment.
I. Foundation - Ethics, Integrity and Trust- allows decision making at appropriate levels in the organization,- fosters individual risk-taking for continuous improvement and helps to ensure that measurements focus on improvement of process and are not used to contend people.- is essential to ensure customer satisfaction.- So, trust builds the cooperative environment essential for TQM.
II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork & LeadershipBasing on the strong foundation of trust, ethics and integrity, bricks are placed to reach the roof of recognition. It includes:4. Training – is very important for employees to be highly productive.- Supervisors are solely responsible for implementing TQM within their departments, and teaching their employees the philosophies of TQM.- Training that employees require are interpersonal skills, the ability to function within teams, problem solving, decision making, job management performance analysis and improvement, business economics and technical skills.- During the creation and formation of TQM, employees are trained so that they can become effective employees for the company.
II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork & Leadership5. Teamwork - is also a key element of TQM to become successful in businessWith the use of teams, the business will receive quicker and better solutions to problems.- provide more permanent improvements in processes and operations.In teams, people feel more comfortable bringing up problems that may occur, and can get help from other workers to find a solution and put into place.
II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork &There are Leadership mainly three types of teams that TQM organizations adopt:A. Quality Improvement Teams or Excellence Teams (QITS) These are temporary teams with the purpose of dealing with specific problems that often re-occur.These teams are set up for period of three to twelve monthsB. Problem Solving Teams (PSTs) These are temporary teams to solve certain problems and also to identify and overcome causes of problems.They generally last from one week to three months.
II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork & LeadershipC. Natural Work Teams (NWTs)These teams consist of small groups of skilled workers who share tasks and responsibilities.These teams use concepts such as employee involvement teams, self-managing teams and quality circles.These teams generally work for one to two hours a week.
II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork & Leadership6. Leadership - It is possibly the most important element in TQM. It appears everywhere in organization.Leadership in TQM requires the manager to provide an inspiring vision, make strategic directions that are understood by all and to instill values that guide subordinates.For TQM to be successful in the business, the supervisor must be committed in leading his employees.
II. Building Bricks - Training, Teamwork & LeadershipA supervisor must understand TQM , believe in it and then demonstrate their belief and commitment through their daily practices of TQM .The supervisor makes sure that strategies, philosophies, values and goals are transmitted down through out the organization to provide focus, clarity and direction.A key point is that TQM has to be introduced and led by top management.Commitment and personal involvement is required from top management in creating and deploying -clear quality values and goals consistent with the objectives of the company and in creating and deploying well defined systems, methods and performance measures for achieving those goals.
III. Binding Mortar - Communication7. Communication – It binds everything together. Starting from foundation to roof of the TQM house, everything is bound by strong mortar of communication.It acts as a vital link between all elements of TQMCommunication means a common understanding of ideas between the sender and the receiver.The success of TQM demands communication with and among all the organization members, suppliers and customers.Supervisors must keep open airways where employees can send and receive information about the TQM process.
III. Binding Mortar - CommunicationCommunication coupled with the sharing of correct information is vital.For communication to be credible the message must be clear and receiver must interpret in the way the sender intended.There are different ways of communication such as: A. Downward communication B. Upward communication C. Sideways communicationA. Downward communication – This is the dominant form of communication in an organization.Presentations and discussions - basically do it. By this the supervisors are able to make the employees clear about TQM .
III. Binding Mortar - CommunicationB. Upward communication –By this the lower level of employees are able to provide suggestions to upper management of the affects of TQM .As employees provide insight and constructive criticism, supervisors must listen effectively to correct the situation that comes about through the use of TQM .This forms a level of trust between supervisors and employees.This is also similar to empowering communication, where supervisors keep open ears and listen to others.C. Sideways communication –This type of communication is important because it breaks down barriers between departments. It also allows dealing withcustomers and suppliers in a more professional manner.
IV. Roof –Recognition8. Recognition –Recognition is the last and final element in the entire system.It should be provided for both suggestions and achievements for teams as well as individuals.Employees strive to receive recognition for themselves and their teams.Detecting and recognizing contributors is the most important job of a supervisor.As people are recognized, there can be huge changes in self-esteem, productivity, quality and the amount of effort exhorted to the task at hand.
IV. Roof –RecognitionRecognition comes in its best form when it is immediately following an action that an employee has performed.Recognition comes in different ways, places and time viz.,· Ways - It can be by way of personal letter from top management. Also by award banquets, plaques, trophies etc.· Places - Good performers can be recognized in front of departments, on performance boards and also in front of top management.· Time - Recognition can given at any time like in staff meeting, annual award banquets, etc.
ConclusionWe can conclude that these eight elements are key in ensuring the success of TQM in an organization and that the supervisor is a huge part in developing these elements in the work place.Without these elements, the business entities cannot be successful TQM implementers.It is very clear from the above discussion that TQM without involving integrity, ethics and trust would be a great remiss, in fact it would be incomplete.Training is the key by which the organization creates a TQM environment.
ConclusionLeadership and teamwork go hand in hand.Lack of communication between departments, supervisors and employees create a burden on the whole TQM process.Last but not the least, recognition should be given to people who contributed to the overall completed task.Hence,• lead by example,• train employees to provide a quality product,• create an environment where there is no fear to share knowledge, &• give credit where credit is due- is the motto of a successful TQM organization.

Leadership (Management commitment)A leader strengthens and inspires the followers to accomplish shared goals.Leaders shape, promote, protect and exemplify the organization’s values.Leadership is We, not me; mission, not my show; vision , not division; and community, not domicileLeaders should serve as role models through their ethical behaviour and the personal involvement in planning, communication, training and development of future leaders, review of organizational performance and employee recognition.
Leadership (Management commitment)ie., Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent.Leaders carry out this process by applying their leadership attributes such as beliefs, values, ethics, character, knowledge and skills.The position as a manager, supervisor, leader etc., will give the authority to accomplish certain tasks and objectives in the organization.This power does not make as a leader, it simply the boss.Leadership differs in that it makes the followers want to achieve high goals, rather than simply bossing people around.Leader Vs Manager“Leader create energy by inspiring ; Managers control and direct energy:“Leaders are essential ; Managers are necessary”“Leaders do the right things ; Managers do things right”
Leadership conceptsIn order to become successful, leadership requires an understanding of human nature- the basic needs, wants and abilities of peopleTo be effective, a leader understands that:1. People, need security and independence at the same time.2. People are sensitive to external rewards and punishments and yet are also strongly self-motivated3. People like to hear a kind word of praise, catch people doing something right, so you can pat them on the back.4. People can process only a few facts at a time; thus, a leader needs to keep things simple.5. People trust their gut reaction more than statistical data.6. People distrust a leader’s rhetoric (the art of oratory) if the words are inconsistent with the leader’s actions.

Deming’s Philosophy (14 points) Dr.W.Edwards Deming was a supreme practitioner, whose teaching pointed the Japanese towards the star of quality management on which their post-war breakthrough was based. He taught SPC concepts and importance of quality to leading CEOs (21) of Japanese Industry in a seminar in 1950. He summarised his ideas in theseDr. W. Edwards Deming far-famed Fourteen Points. The rest were developed and the original ones modified over a period of time.
Deming’s Philosophy1. * “Create constancy of purpose towards improvement”. -that means short-term out, long-term in.2.* “Adopt the new philosophy” -from top to bottom3. * “Cease dependence on inspection”. -you don’t inspect quality into products and services – -you design it in and check only by statistical quality control.4. * “Move towards a single supplier for any one item.” -playing many suppliers off against each other is a mug’s game.5. * “Improve constantly and forever”. - however good you are, you can always do better.6. * “Institute training on the job” - the best place to learn.7. * “Institute leadership” - going well beyond supervision and its quotas and targets.8. * “Drive out fear”, -which makes for bad work - and bad management.9. * “Break down barriers between departments”:
Deming’s Philosophy10. * “Eliminate slogans”. -exhortation is another counter-productive substitute for real management.11. * “Eliminate management by objectives”. -relying on production and other targets is also counter- productive.12. * “Remove barriers to pride of workmanship”. -the key to superior quality lies here – and in the Fourteen Points, which all encourage performance.13. * “Institute education and self-improvement” - which should go without saying.14. * “The transformation is everyone’s job”- and Deming really meant everyone, from and including the top. Simple, straightforward, not easy, but absolutely worth the effort. W.Edwards Deming’s 14 Points revolutionised an economy. What they did for Japan they can also do for you.
Barriers to TQM implementationTQM extends beyond the scope of quality control, quality assurance, quality management and total quality.Total quality embraces the aspect of continuous improvement in all the activities of an organization.Organizations that have accepted and implemented this philosophy are far and few.An organization complying with the above statements have reached that level of quality by applying total quality management as part of their daily routines without it being written into policy or procedures.It is a way of life for them.
Barriers to TQM implementationMany companies and organizations are striving to achieve this level.There appears to be much confusion as to what total quality management stands for.Some people are trying to define TQM by placing items such as change, corporate culture, into boxes.This means that they see each of these as separate entities.It must be understood that TQM should be seen as a single integrated approach to the four areas of managements organizational being.Thus TQM must be seen in an organization as the organizational consistency and harmony which are vital to corporate strategy and its impact on the external market.TQM should be seen as the amalgamation of teams, methods, internal markets and leadership.You must adopt an holistic approach to the concept of TQM .
Barriers to TQM implementationCommon obstacles/barriers are:1. Lack of top management commitment and vision2. Lack of motivation and involvement of employees (company culture and management style)3. Flavour of month attitude4. Department based thinking and actions5. Poor appreciation of the concepts and principles of TQM6. Lack of structures for TQM activities7. Deciding how to start8. Gaining the involvement of non-manufacturing departments9. Ineffective leadership
