  • Contents

Is your organization looking back on its quality process and saying, "it failed"? Are you concerned that TQM is just another fad, only to be replaced by the next improvement movement? Don't jump ship just yet. Everyone experiences some failure in his or her quality improvement process. Successful organizations are different because they learn from their failures and do it right the second time.

The author takes you sequentially through the activities required to lead a lasting change from vision to final realization. More importantly, he stresses the balance between process improvement and people improvement.

Each brief chapter covers a specific topic in a framework, which leads you directly to the issues that concern your organization. Throughout the book are checklists, tables, questionnaires, and other helpful tools to support your quality implementation. In addition, Merrill supplies examples showing you what went wrong with other organizations and the successful course of corrections they made.
