TQM works on the aforementioned theory in principal, it further goes on and says that it is an all encompassing, integrative philosophy of management for continuously and incessantly improving the quality of the products, services, practices whatever they may be. It was initially developed and worked on by American management consultants namely W. Edwards Deming, Joseph M. Juran, and Armand Feigenbaum respectively. However the methodology and nuances that comes along as how to apply it in practice was worked on by individuals such as Philip B.

...Pierre Danon, instilled a culture that saw the division excel for a number of years. This culture was driven by all top management and its employees in order to realise their set targets. The culture that was adopted by BT Retail was total quality management (TQM) throughout the organisation. This meant that all top management displayed and practised TQM. The author takes us through what is TQM and what are the principles that BT Retail instilled in order to gain customer satisfaction. The following principles were discussed: * Customer Focus * Continuous Improvement * Employee involvement and Empowerment * Systems Thinking. These four pillars made sure that BT Retail was able to reduce the cost of poor quality, through continuous improvement methods and early identification of problems. In turn there was a decline in defective work, decline in dissatisfied customers, very little inspection was required and an increased sense of prevention. BT retail remained to be successful because all stakeholders were involved and quality was a way of life from managers to employees. In the next session we will answer three fundamental questions on the success of BT Retail. Explain in detail the role customer satisfaction played in BT’s total quality journey.

Total Rewards

...I. Company requirements for a total rewards system A total rewards system development is part art and part science that begins with a purpose and objective that encompasses the business' values and strategies. This service-based company is spread out over different geographical regions and different employee levels and structure. Therefore, it is even more important that the company aligns the purpose of this total rewards system to what the company is aiming at accomplishing. The most basic elements of a total rewards system are the compensation, benefits, work-life balance, performance and recognition, and personal and career development (World at Work, 2007). The total rewards system/program needs to offer all of these components in order to be considered “total”. For a total rewards system in such a company environment, the system has to be flexible and take into account the diversity of the company. With so many employees in so many different countries, it is important to consider the needs of these diverse peoples and how they can change from region to region and ethnicity to ethnicity. The company will also have to analyze its strategy competiveness in many different markets, so it will be required to perform many types of job analyses and surveys in order to properly determine this. For a service-based company, it is important to create clearly defined benchmarks and goals, while tied to company goals, are easily understood so that all of the......

Many organizations in today’s business arena want a total rewards system that encompasses the company’s objectives and their interconnection to the total rewards system (“WorldatWork,” 2007). However, mega organizations that employ over 20,000 employees and provide services in several different countries may require a more diverse total rewards system. With that said, the organization must have a purpose, objectives, eligibility requirements, measuring techniques, funding, structure, global considerations, a timeline of detailed actions, and laws when creating their total rewards system. According to the experts, a company must consider the following core provisions as components of their total rewards system: * Cash Compensations: The employee’s base pay and incentives. * Benefits: The employee’s health care and retirement aids. * Work and Life Balance: Assisting the employee by offering tools to assist with balancing work and life. * Performance Management and Recognition: Aligning company goals with total rewards through individual and team efforts, and the acknowledgements of employee actions, behaviors, performance, and efforts in achieving company goals. * Career Advancement and Development: The employee’s career development and promotion......

Total Rewards

...Total rewards are not just about pay, it is everything that is valuable to an employee in relation to employment. Employees want to be rewarded for their time and energy, therefore, organizations have developed total rewards strategies to attract and retain the best employees. Describe each of the top five (5) advantages of a total rewards approach The top five advantages of a total rewards approach are increased flexibility, improved recruitment and retention, reduced labor cost/cost of turnover, heightened visibility in a tight labor market, and enhanced profitability. According to Wiley (2011), each employee enjoys a sense of flexibility; it is viewed as a pathway for employees to determine their availability for work. Employees who make choices about his or her own setting are more connected to the workplace, because they have a feeling of ownership (Storey, Wright, Ulrich, 2009). Recruitment and retention plays an important role in a total rewards approach however, organizations are plagued with shortages of top performing workers, and therefore employers are using the right approach to staffing, the best candidates, and retaining those candidates. Today’s workers are not just interested in their salary but also, other aspects of their company. According to Wiley (2011), job candidates weigh their options with numerous companies, and those companies with total rewards have a competitive advantage, because job candidates are able to view the “total value” of the......

Total Institutions

...born, the process of socialization occurs. We continuously interact with people at places like school, home, or work, which influence our behaviors and shape the person we become. If we lose the opportunity to interact with others, it gives us little room to construct or maintain a social identity. What a person may imagine as their own reality, can be quickly altered and replaced with new sets of rules, beliefs and even a new sense of self. Erving Goffman, a Canadian-American sociologist, describes an establishment that is capable of causing such drastic changes as a “total institution”. An example of such institution is seen in Frederick Wiseman’s documentary called, “Titicut Follies,” about a state hospital for the criminally insane in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Through out the film, there were many instances that agreed with Goffman’s theory of what constitutes a total institution. What exactly is a total institution? According to Goffman, this term refers to a place in which people are detached from the rest of society and taken under almost complete control from the staff in charge. It is a place where people who have comparable social situations, like those in the documentary who commit crimes, but are also mentally unstable, reside. They live a confined life, where no boundaries are set for the three spheres of life which include, work, play, and sleep. (Goffman 1961) In a sense, this process tends to dehumanize the individual and strip them away from all the......

William Edwards Deming (14 de octubre de 1900 - 20 de diciembre de 1993) fue un estadístico estadounidense, profesor universitario, autor de textos, consultor y difusor del concepto de calidad total. Filosofía 1.- Constancia en el propósito de mejorar productos y servicios: "El Dr. Deming sugiere una nueva y radical definición de la función de una empresa: Más que hacer dinero, es mantenerse en el negocio y brindar empleo por medio de la innovación, la investigación, la mejora constante y el mantenimiento".* 2.- Adoptar la nueva filosofía: "Hoy día se tolera demasiado la mano de obra deficiente y el servicio antipático. Necesitamos una nueva religión en la cual los errores y el negativismo sean inaceptables".* 3.- No depender más de la inspección masiva: "Las empresas típicamente inspeccionan un producto cuando éste sale de la línea de producción o en etapas importantes del camino, y los productos defectuosos se......

...States participated in genocidal acts as an overall policy toward Native Americans. The Native-American population decrease since the arrival of Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus alone signals the toll colonization and U.S. settlement took on the native population. Scholars estimate that approximately 10 million pre-Columbian Native Americans resided in the present-day United States. That number has since fallen to approximately 2.4 million. While this population decrease cannot be attributed solely to the actions of the U.S. government, they certainly played a key role. In addition to population decrease, Native Americans have also experienced significant cultural and proprietary losses as a result of U.S. governmental actions. The total effect has posed a serious threat to the sustainability of the Native-American people and culture. Ideological Motivations Two conflicting yet equally harmful ideologies significantly influenced U.S. dealings with Native Americans. The first sprang from the Enlightenment and, more specifically, John Locke's Second Treatise of Government. Locke proposed that the individual had an exclusive claim to one's person. The fruits of one's labor, as an extension of the individual, then, become the laborer's property. Thus, individuals acquire property rights by removing things from the state of nature through the investment of their labor. This particular theory of property helped justify the many harmful policies against Native Americans......
