8 Process (Customer-Supplier) 1.2 Understanding and building the quality chainsThroughout and beyond all organizations -manufacturing & service- there is a series of quality chains of customer and supplier.The concept of internal and external customers/suppliers forms the core of total quality.Failure to meet the requirements in any part of quality chain leads to yet more failure.
9 Process (Customer-Supplier) Meeting the requirementsthe first item on the list of things to do is find out what requirements are.If we are dealing with a customer/supplier relationship, the supplier must understand not only the needs of the customer but also the ability of his own organization to meet them.Internal supplier/customer relationships are often the most difficult to manage in terms of establishing the requirements.
10 Process (Customer-Supplier) To achieve quality throughout an organization, each person in the quality chain must interrogate every interface as follows:Customers:who are my immediate customers?what are their true requirements?how can I measure my ability to meet the requirements?Suppliers:who are my immediate suppliers?what are my true requirements?
11 Communication (internally & externally) 1.4 Quality starts with ‘Marketing’Marketing is responsible for determining the key characteristics that determine the suitability of the product or service in the eyes of the customer.Excellent communication between customers and suppliers is the key to total quality.Requirements must be communicated properly throughout the organization in the form of specifications which can be used as the basis for the design .
12 Commitment 2.2 Commitment and policy TQM must start at the top with the chief Executive or equivalent.The middle management must explain the principles of TQM to the people for whom they are responsible, and ensure that their own commitment is communicated.The chief Executive must accept the responsibility for and commitment to a quality policy in which he must really believe.Within each and every department of the organization at all levels, starting at the top, basic changes of attitude will be required to operate TQM.
13 Culture 2.3 Creating or changing the culture The culture within an organization is formed by a number of components:Behaviors based on people interactions.Norms resulting from working groups.Dominant values adopted by the organization.Rules of the game for getting on.The climate.Any organization needs a vision framework that includes its guiding philosophy, core values and beliefs and a purpose these should be combined into a mission.
14 CultureThe guiding philosophy drives the organization and is shaped by the leaders through their thoughts and actions.The core values and beliefs represent the organization’s basic principles about what is important in business, its conduct, its social responsibility and its response to changes in the environment.The purpose of the organization should be a development from the core values and beliefs and should quickly and clearly convey how the organization is to fulfill its role.
