What is TQM?

TQM is the integration of all functions and processes within an organization in order to achieve continuous improvementof the quality of goods and services. The goal is customer satisfaction.

Total quality management tqm

TQM is about always trying

to do things right first time and every time, rather than occasionally checking if they have gone wrong.

TQM dictates that everything and everybody in the

organization is involved in the enterprise of continuous improvement.

Total quality management tqm

TQM is a practical but strategic approach to running an organization

that focuses on the needs of its customers and clients. It rejects any

outcome other than excellence.

Total quality management tqm

TQM is not a set of slogans, but a

deliberate and systematic approach to achieving appropriate levels of

quality in a consistent fashion that meet or exceed the needs and wants

of customers. It can be thought of as a philosophy of continual

improvement only achievable by and through people.

TQM requires Changing cultures

TQM requires a change of culture. This is notoriously difficult to bring

about and takes time to implement.

It requires a change of attitudes and

working methods.

Staff need to understand and live the message if TQM is to make an impact.

However, culture change is not only about

changing behaviours. It also requires a change in institutional

Tow things are required for staff to produce quality:

1- staff need a suitable environment in which to work.

They need the tools of the trade and they need to work with systems and procedures which are simple and which aid them in doing their jobs.

2- to do a good job the staff need encouragement and recognition of their successes and achievements.

The key to a successful TQM culture is an:

effective internal/external

customer-supplier chain.

Keeping close to the customers

The primary mission of a TQM institution is to meet the needs and

wants of its customers. Excellent organizations, both public and private,

keep ‘close to the customer’.

- A customer focus is, however, not by itself a sufficient condition for ensuring total quality.

- TQM organizations need fully worked out

strategies for meeting their customers’ requirements.

- Education faces a consid erable challenge in its relationships with its external customers.

Total quality management tqm

  • The customer focus aspect of TQM does not just involve meeting the requirements of the external customers.

  • Colleagues within the institution are also customers, and rely upon internal services of others to do their job effectively.

Total quality management tqm

- Internal customer relationships are vitally important if an institution is to function efficiently and effectively.

- The best way of developing the internal

customer focus is to help individual members of staff to identify the

people to whom they provide services.

Internal marketing

It is staff that make the quality difference. They produce successful

courses and satisfied clients. Internal marketing is a useful tool for

communicating with staff to ensure they are kept informed about what

is happening in the institution and have the opportunity to feed back

Training for

teachers in quality concepts and thinking is an important element in the required culture change.

Staff have to understand how they and their

pupils and students will benefit from a change to a customer focus.


quality is about more than being ‘nice to customers and smiling’.

It is

about listening and entering into a dialogue about people’s fears and

The quality of learning

Education is about learning.

If TQM is to have relevance in education it

needs to address the quality of the learners’ experience.

Unless it does

that, it will not make a substantial contribution to quality in education.

Total quality management tqm

An educational institution that takes the total quality route must take

seriously the issue of learning styles and needs to have strategies for

individualization and differentiation in learning.

The learner is the

primary customer, and unless learning styles meet individual needs it

will not be possible for that institution to claim that it has achieved total

Barriers to introducing TQM

TQM is hard work.

-It takes time to develop a quality culture. By

themselves hard work and time are two of the most formidable blocking

mechanisms to quality improvement.

Total quality management tqm

- TQM needs a champion in the

face of the myriad of new challenges and changes facing education.

- Quality improvement is a fragile process.

Total quality management tqm

- If TQM is to work it must have the long-term devotion of the senior

staff of the institution.

Total quality management tqm

- Many quality initiatives falter because senior

managers quickly return to traditional ways of managing.

Total quality management tqm

- Fear by senior

managers of adopting new methods is a major barrier.

Total quality management tqm

- sheer volume of external pressures also stands in the way of

many organizations attempting TQM

Total quality management tqm

- Many staff fear the consequences of empowerment, especially if things go

wrong. They are often comfortable with sameness. They need to have

the benefits demonstrated to them.

Total quality management tqm

- Fear of the unknown, of doing things differently,

of trusting others, and of making mistakes, are powerful defence and

resistance mechanisms. Staff cannot give of their best unless they feel

that they are trusted and their views listened to.

Deming argues that it is

essential when undertaking the quality revolution to ‘drive out fear’, and

it is imperative to take this message seriously when building a quality
