Aims and Scope

The TQM Journal seeks high quality submissions from academics, researchers and practitioners from around the world. First time authors are very welcome and it is hoped that the feedback received from the editors and/or reviewers will aid their development as both researchers and academic writers.

Generally, contributions should cover the theoretical development and the practical application of both the “hard” and “soft” aspects of TQM. Research can be from the private sector or the public sectors of industry – including manufacturing, health, education, local government, professional and other service organisations.

Specifically, contributors can address, inter alia, the following areas:

·       The TQM philosophy, including the quality gurus;

·       Leadership and management issues including people and process issues;

·       Internal and external customer issues;

·       The measurement of quality;

·       Costs of quality;

·       Continuous improvement;

·       ISO management standards including implementation and integration issues;

·       Quality management and related systems including implementation and integration issues.

·       Excellence models including implementation and management issues;

·       Process management and improvement including Lean, Six Sigma, Lean Six Sigma, and Business Process Management;

·       Tools and techniques for quality management and improvement including, inter alia, kaizen, 5S, Kano analysis, the seven tools of quality control;

·       Problem-solving

·       Strategical, tactical and operational issues for quality management implementation and sustainability;

 Contributors should keep discussions on the history of quality management thought to a minimum and focus on their contribution to, and their advancement of, the body of knowledge on quality management.

Testimonial


"TQM Journal is an international journal which strikes a great balance between the theory and practice of Quality Management principles across a broad range of industrial sectors ranging from manufacturing to service to public sector organisations. A number of articles appearing in this journal can be readily used for teaching, training and research purposes. In fact, a number of my Doctoral students have widely used many research papers from TQM Journal over the years”
