Total quality management is a business approach that seeks to improve all quality factors. These factors may affect quality directly or indirectly. Either way, this TQM approach can help address the issues that tend to affect quality adversely. The trick here is to break down the complex activities and look at each sub-process individually. That makes it easier to identify the fields that need improvement. Identification of the actual root cause and addressing the elimination of that cause now becomes possible with this approach.
The goal of increased productivity with less waste can be achieved by implementing an effective Total Quality Management System. With such a system in place, it becomes possible to foster the “do more with less” mentality throughout the organization. It is a must to make sure that the entire organization comes together as a single unit to do this. Proper leadership from the top-level can lead the rest of the firm on to the right track of better quality.
Being under-resourced is never a good thing and frequently affects performance and efficiency adversely. But, it may even come as a surprise to some, being over-resourced is actually possible. While it may appear to be a good thing at first, it is not so. This can result in being overstaffed or overuse of specific resources leading to higher expenses.
Also, now it is possible to automate many processes that required manual handling. This can help cut back the resources, human and other, needed for the undertaking of the process. This automation can actually help improve efficiency immensely as opposed to manual processes. Thus indeed, doing more with less.
