“Total Quality Management is today’s most important management philosophy. In this landmark book, Bill Creech reveals what’s wrong with the traditional American management style – and as its replacement prescribes a ‘Five Pillar” form of TQM that can provide businesses the decisive competitive edge they will need to survive and to prosper as globalisation unfolds.
Drawing on his own successes and on examples from nineteen corporations worldwide, Creech cites both horror and success stories to illuminate how companies can best adapt to our changing times. He evaluates the ideas of the famous “process” gurus and dissects what’s working and what’s not within the quality management movement. He eloquently explains why, despite all the rhetoric, that movement is providing little real change.”
