Do what you say Once they understand the process, team members are able to implement it e.g. by constructing a new building for a specific client. 3. Record what you have done Construction teams record all actions taken, so that all those involved know the current position, what has gone on before and what still needs to be done. 22

  30. 30. Key Idea In the daily attempt to bring about change in the individual parts of the organizational universe, managers, employees, professors, and students can find that personal quality is the key to unlock the door to a wider understanding of what the concept really is all about. Unless quality is internalized at the personal level, it will never become rooted in the culture of an organization. Thus, quality must begin at a personal level (and that means you!). 30
