I will seek to maintain 'TQM' by checking each job and making continuous improvements. It will make me think 'TQM' requires a new process thinking mindset. I must realize that everything I do is part of a process. Our focus shifts from managing outcomes to managing and improving processes; from what to do to how to do the processes better. Quality performance expands to include how well each part of the process works and the relationship of each part to the process. Also, process improvement focuses on continuously achieving the greatest potential benefit for our customers. I will focus on the following: * Identify necessary elements for a successful quality management approach. * Know how they fit together to successfully accomplish quality goals. * Display the most options, thus helping make the right quality management choices.
