Tutor description

Every person has had an experience with quality and every person can give his own reflection on what he perceived to be of poor or high quality. Not until the early 1950’s did total quality management emerge at the top of firms’ schemata hence making quality improvement as the highest priority in any institution, firm or business. Based on the fact that quality comes from integrated efforts of teams, employees and each level in an organization, total quality management was introduced and applied in all businesses as a means to enhance total quality by working on each level and stage in the service delivery or production.
