Front Cover
McGraw Hill Professional, 1993 - Business & Economics - 223 pages
This book argues that no commitment to quality can ever succeed without applying the principles of Total Quality Management (TQM) to the purchasing function and that the end quality of any product or service is critically dependent on quality in the purchasing function. It details why total quality within purchasing is so critical, lays out a proven seven-step process for applying TQM to purchasing, and examines other top companies that have done it successfully.
