Introspection and questioning value proposition leads to additional inquiries about the reason for a quality department. It is significant to learn the purpose as to guarantee consumer satisfaction, to guarantee outgoing quality or assist manufacturing. On the other hand, such purposes of the quality department do not help a business. The reason for a quality department is to guarantee profit margins by dropping inefficiencies, operations mistakes and product defects. Additionally, the purpose also must comprise proactively improving capability and capacity of operations using new techniques, tools or skills (Gupta, 2008).
The majority of quality departments are forced to be hesitant by operations people. They are told to do things such as add examination, react to a consumer complaints or similar such requirements. Quality departments are thought to be an unnecessary expense and a burden because they add no clear value; they are thought to be just an expense of doing business. Thinking of distinction in the quality department will lead one to define their value proposition, and make possible superiority in every department. Superiority in every department means helping each department in defining and identifying superiority such that it adds to the gainful growth of the entire company. This will then emphasize departments that are not contributing to the gainful growth, or matters negatively affecting it (Gupta, 2008).
If a business has a vice president (VP) of quality, then they must counsel the CEO to concentrate on profitable growth by way of affirmative behaviors, motivation, synergy and command for excellence. If this cannot be done, or the vice president is not heard at the top level, the quality department is ineffective to begin with. Devoid of such contentions, quality departments cannot add value. Being in charge of a quality department is not a job; as an alternative, it is the role of a preacher and a counselor. If one cannot generate a quality state of mind at the top level, it cannot filter down to the rest of the company (Gupta, 2008).
Superiority in the quality department entails setting up clear targets in terms of its input to profitability, decline in expense of quality through less examination and test, and developing new skills. The chief reason for the quality department is to strive for perfection in vital processes, while sustaining actions that move in the direction of supporting gainful growth. Such...
These are not easy things to do, but quality people must be willing to work smart and hard in order to be successful (Gupta, 2008).
Because of the fact that the manufacturing industry produces so many products that are vital to people's everyday existence, it is an industry that relies heavily on good quality measures. People who work in this industry have to pay very close attention to detail and must be committed to producing quality products. There may be very bad consequences if bad products were being produced for consumer use. This is the reason that quality control is so important in the manufacturing industry. Quality has to be top priority which puts a lot of pressure on those who work in this field.
Those people who are quality managers often have very stressful jobs. They not only have to be responsible for the quality process as a whole but they have to make sure that the top executives in a company and on board and stay on board with what they are doing. The success of the quality department is very dependent on the entire organization buying into the process. If nobody cares it will definitely show in the overall manufacturing process. And this in turn will lead to sloppy work and bad products being produced, which will in the end drive away the customers. The bottom line is that if a company has no customers then they really have no need to be in business. This is why quality is the leading driver of a successful company.

Taking the relationship of employee morale and its linkage with organizational culture to the most extreme case, Yaghi (2007) studied how decision-making processes are implemented in companies where there is a dominant organizational culture. Selecting a faith-based organization as one of the cases for the study, the author determined how decision-making is mainly influenced by the organizational culture, influenced by the values of solidarity, guardianship, and (belief in a) mission
Management: Organizational Behavior American workers have been brought up in a society that emphasizes individuality, thus it will be difficult for them to readily accept the notion that group-based rewards are as beneficial as individual ones. Though Americans are used to the 'team' work concept, many still prefer receiving individual recognition for their achievements. This is due in part to the emphasis on individual achievement and competition evidenced in many organizations. Job
Managing Organizational Change It is reasonable to suggest that companies of all types and sizes have integrated information technology systems of some sort to help them manage their businesses and achieve a competitive advantage in recent years. Because computer systems tend to become obsolete rapidly as Moore's Law continues to hold true, many companies have accumulated a mish-mash of various computer types and capabilities that may not operate efficiently in a
Managing change in the organization often centers on one of several change strategies or approaches for implementing changes in an organization. Some are more applicable to some situations than others. A directive change strategy occurs when management takes all responsibility for the change and imposes it throughout the organization, using formal management channels already in place. This has the advantage of using existing personnel and structures and may be effective
MANAGING ORGANIZATION'S STRUCTURE Managing the Organization's Structure; McDonald's case study McDonald's represents the biggest fast food chain in the world, with its key products being burgers, soft drinks, French fries, desserts and shakes. Increasing health consciousness and trends against obesity have called attention to the company, which, by all accounts, has contributed majorly to rapid growth of obesity in its customers.

Human Resources Managing Organisational Culture The values and behaviors that contribute to the unique social and psychological environment of an organization make up the organizations culture. Organizational culture is the summation total of an organization's past and current suppositions, incidents, viewpoint, and values that hold it together, and is articulated in its self-image, inner workings, connections with the outside world, and future prospects. In dealing with the management of organisational culture, it is
