Measuring quality is often very difficult, but metrics are continuous improvement tools, not an end in themselves. A common pitfall in TQM efforts is becoming bogged down with graphs and fishbone charts, which are merely visual representations of work processes. The following titles cover how to measure quality in various office settings, as well as how to present the data. They will not, however, tell you what to measure, because that determination is often best left to the employee who knows best what tasks are measurable.

Reengineering [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 24-09-2003

Reengineering (sometimes written as 're-engineering', usually by computer specialists) is currently a hot topic in management, but some would argue it is hardly a new concept. It is, rather, another term for evaluating internal management and business processes. As many of the following items state, reengineering is not simply process improvement; reengineering suggests questioning the value of an entire process, and combines breakthrough thinking with TQM. Michael Hammer, one of the authors listed below, writes: At the heart of reengineering is the notion of discontinuous thinking -of recognizing and breaking away from outdated rules and fundamental assumptions that underlie operations. Unless we change the rules, we are merely rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

The Cost of Quality [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 10-01-2003
What is the cost of quality? Does it raise the price of goods and services? Are huge savings possible by implementing continual improvement efforts? These questions are not easy ones, but quality is measureable, as are its costs. Philip Crosby, in Quality is Free, writes that the cost of quality is "the expense of noncomformance - the cost of doing things wrong." Some prefer the term "cost of poor quality" (COPQ) because that implies what happens when continual improvement efforts are derailed or postponed. As A.V. Feigenbaum, an early writer on the subject states in Total Quality Control: Today, we not only recognize the measurability of quality costs but that these costs are central to the management and engineering of modern total quality control as well as to the business strategy planning of companies and plants.

The following books and articles cover methods of delayering organizational structure, which has become fairly common as organizations strive to become leaner to improve productivity as well as workplace communication. A horizontal, rather than pyramid, structure not only allows greater worker empowerment, but also makes communicating vision throughout the organization an easier task. A flattened organization requires fewer managers, is less bureaucratic, and can produce more cross-functional employees. Achieving such an organizational structure is not always a simple task, as several of the cited articles cover in their case studies.
