Human resource management is a particularly challenging role, both domestically and globally. This challenge can be viewed either as an opportunity or as a threat. As an opportunity, the principles and practices of total quality presented in this book can help human resource professionals or anyone who manages people, transform institutionalized mediocrity into organizational excellence. The focus of this book is on managing the difference TQ makes in human resources. Whereas the traditional nature and scope of responsibility for most human resource professionals has been that of staff support geared to administrative compliance, the total quality approach offered here reveals the keys to developing and sustaining commitment to world-class performance. These keys include strategic input and continual improvement of the human resource system to enhance internal and external customer satisfaction both now and in the future. The full meaning of these new TQ role demands is explored in light of the driving forces reshaping the HR environment into the 21st Century. In addition, this book offers practitioner assessment instruments, practical TQ tools, and specific implementation steps to take in order to make the TQ difference in managing human resources domestically and globally.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, University of Phoenix, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In today's society, consumers are often seen more as numbers than actual people. Customer service is talked about frequently, but rarely delivered upon. Customer's requests or needs that go beyond what employees typically experience often fall upon the deaf ears of apathetic employees. Complaints are often handled equally as careless. One company, however, has a reputation for being different - Ritz-Carlton Hotels. The corporation's commitment to customer satisfaction and guest services is apparent in every facet of their business. It is an employee's duty to go above and beyond the call of duty with each and every customer they service. This two-time winner of the prestigious Malcolm Baldridge Quality Award has truly taken customer service to a level head and shoulders above their competition. This superior level of service did not simply happen by chance, however. The Ritz-Carlton organization has molded their employees into superior service providers with a variety of intensive trainings, merit-based appraisal systems, and continuous reinforcement of the company's commitment to these 'Gold Standards'. This commitment by both the organization and each and every team member has allowed Ritz-Carlton to take the theory that 'the customer is always right' and evolve it into the ultimate customer service experience that is the cornerstone of their success. In addition, by using Total Quality Management (TQM), Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has not only been able to maintain superior customer service, but drive significant and sustainable change. This adaptability, while still maintaining the highest levels of quality, has propelled Ritz-Carlton to the forefront of its industry.

TQM gurus and consultants market it as the best change initiative that provides organizations with a competitive advantage. They also say that it is a cure for all problems that companies face. This dissertation provides intellectual and factual data showing that this is not always the case. There are areas where TQM provides a needed change initiative along with others. In addition, once most companies treat improving their processes as a priority, TQM ceases to give a competitive advantage since it becomes a basic entry point into the competition. The dissertation gives examples showing that contrary to what the consultants propagate: 1. It is not a panacea for all problems in organizations and that it fits all types of organizations, 2. It is not the only way to give organizations a competitive advantage, and 3. TQM's fit for the services sector is discussed with emphasis on customer satisfaction. Also covered are some limitations of TQM including empowerment, times of paradigm shifts, major process changes, and reward systems.
