Total Quality Management (TQM) Course

Training Program – Intertek Academy

The challenge that companies face as the 21st Century gets underway, is to succeed in a global economy where competition is fierce and where customers are becoming increasingly demanding of quality.

Companies must supply products and services that are competitive in both price and quality, and in international as well as in domestic markets. To maintain a competitive edge in such an environment they must continually improve the quality of what they offer. Total Quality Management (TQM) is a management strategy, which has proven itself as a way of managing and continuously improving quality. Its successful implementation in Japanese firms has been a major factor not only in their success, but also in establishing the levels of quality that customers now expect in whatever they purchase.
