Total Quality Management -implementation on the basis of Poland

  • Edward Kindlarski
  • Ben Bella Jaoko


This chapter describes the concept of implementing Total Quality Management (TQM) on the basis of initiative undertaken in Poland by the authors. TQM can be implemented in an organization, but since quality plays a significant part in national economies, the authors propose organized, nation-wide initiatives that will lead organizations within the country to implement TQM. Examples of initiatives taken in Poland are also described in this chapter.
