TQM is the integration of all functions and processes within an organization in order to achieve continuous improvement of the quality of goods and services. The goal is customer satisfaction. “ No doubt , humans are always deficient” (Al-Quran) The Three Quality Gurus Deming: the best known of the “early” pioneers, is credited with popularizing quality control in Japan in early 1950s.Today, he is regarded as a national hero in that country and is the father of the world famous Deming prize for quality. JURAN Juran, like Deming was invited to Japan in 1954 by the union of Japanese Scientists and engineers. Juran defines quality as fitness for use in terms of design, conformance, availability, safety and field use. He focuses on top-down management and technical methods rather than worker pride and satisfaction. Philip Crosby: author of popular book Quality is Free. His absolutes of quality are: Quality is defined as conformance to requirements, not “goodness” The system for achieving quality is prevention, not appraisal. The performance standard is......

...straightforward: “What’s the revenue potential of this business five years from now?” “I’m estimating eight million to ten million dollars by the end of year five,” she says. “That’s chump change to us,” he laughs. “Talk to me again when you have something with a revenue potential of a hundred million or more. Anything less is too small for us.” The VP isn’t necessarily being arrogant or short-sighted; huge corporations are handicapped in dealing with what are, to them, small business opportunities. Their human and physical assets are configured to address large markets. Thus, many worthy projects are rejected. These discarded opportunities, however, may be gold mines for small, entrepreneurial businesses. In fact, many managers and engineers leave their companies to exploit projects that their employers have rejected as too small. Ironically, the big, inflexible corporations that will not pursue small, entrepreneurial ventures often end up writing huge checks to acquire these same ventures after they are successful and have grown substantially. The case of Snapple is instructive. Snapple was an entrepreneurial firm that developed a very successful ice-tea and fruitdrink business. And it was growing fast. Between 1991 and 1994, its revenues skyrocketed from $95 million to $516 million. Instead of starting its own ice-tea and fruit-drink enterprise, U.S. food giant Quaker, a unit of PepsiCo, acquired Snapple in 1994 for $1.7 billion. 14 Entrepreneur’s......

...design specifications for an automated highway and car control system, and at the end of the year the DOT will award one recipient a $25-million contract to implement its design. To ensure the integrity of the competition and to protect each team’s intellectual property, the four DOT staff members assigned to this project are split equally between the grant recipients, each staff member providing help and input only to his or her team.  Laura, a licensed professional engineer, is the project manager for the DOT’s smart highway project; her responsibilities include overseeing the four staff members assigned to the grant recipients as well as making recommendations to the DOT commissioner regarding the final award. Her younger sister, Julie, has recently accepted an internship with outocar, a small start-up company that received one of the two state grants. The other grant recipient is guideme, a large, well-established design firm that is a major client of the sisters’ father, Henry, a semiretired lobbyist and engineer.  Laura and Julie are roommates, and during the yearlong project they frequently discuss their work. In one such conversation, Laura gives Julie a brief look at a computer program the guideme team has submitted for her review, a traffic flow modeling program intended for use with the guideme design system. In her comments, Laura makes it clear that she is impressed with the program’s functionality.  Although Julie’s team has been focusing exclusively on......
