What is Total Quality Management?

Total Quality Management (TQM) is a management approach to ensure long-term business success through customer satisfaction. TQM’s goal is to direct all of an organization’s efforts to continuously improve their ability to provide products and services that meet and exceed the standard of customers. All areas and members of an organization work together to improve not only the products and services, but also the processes and organizational culture involved in their manufacturing.

This means that it is not only up to the production department, but also departments such as sales, marketing, finance, accounting, design, and engineering to manage quality through improving their operations. Quality is managed via funding, staffing, training, and setting goals in each department.
