Managing Quality is an up-to-date and student-centered treatment of quality management that will be essential reading for undergraduate students of operations and quality management. It will also be extremely relevant to all MBA students, and useful reading for students of HRM, organization theory and the sociology of organizations.
Valuable read to add another dimension to quality within the workplace. Useful skills that can be used are shared in thus book.
It is an excellent book. The book was not adopted because the School of Business has not scheduled a Quality Management System Course.
Also, business schools has lost number of students due to economic reasons and business slow-down.
Thanks for a well writen book.
A very comprehensive book that covers a good part of the introductory course in quality.
Limited text associated with real-world practices and applications. Generally, the book is too generic in nature for first year students and has NO examples or applications with industry.
