Then we tried to explain about the relation and differences of profession and management. Management may be seen as getting things done by the people. Management as discipline is comparatively new and it has a great diversity. Now coming to profession, management plays an important role in carrying out a profession successfully. The organizations or profession must fulfill the employer’s objectives. If the main task of professionals is to ensure customers well being then something more is needed. The next part of this chapter is professional and ethical code. Here, we explained the purposes of code, the code will help to understand well and communicate well all the member of the organization. Professional association has a code of conduct which is maintained in good order and come from sectoral body. 6 The code of conduct that is developed in business is extremely demanding in organizational climate. The benefit of code must be examined to find out how they are used in practice and how do they address to different problems. Every code is not applicable to all problems. For the benefit of the company, the code of ethics must be explicitly recognized. Managers do not have the right to enforce moral standard on their employees. It is only through the enforcement of code that the ethical culture of the company can be brought. Whatever it may be, some advantage will be gained by exploring the enforcement of codes. 7

One way how to obtain information on the Programme quality and relevance to the labour market demands in the Faculty of Engineering Economics and Management is having contacts with employers – businesses, institutions and organizations. To ensure an ongoing two-way dialogue, regular events and conferences where all interested parties – employers and academic staff and students meet – are organized.

Tanuja Waghmare, Ph. D. Asst.Professor, St. Teresa Institute of Education, Santacruz, West. Mumbai. Management is the process of planning, organizing, actuating and controlling an organizations operation in order to achieve a coordination of the human and material resources essential in the effective and efficient attainment of objectives. Although the concept of quality is very old, today it is perhaps the major preoccupation of organizations world-wide. However, in the recent years, TQM has captured the world-wide attention and is being adopted in many organizations, both profit and non-profit. Step through TQM's door and the first person you'll want to meet will be W. Edwards Deming, credited as the founding father of Total Quality Management. Deming grew up in the twenties and thirties, a time when all you needed to succeed as a factory worker was the ability to work long hours at extremely boring jobs. Most industrial tasks required little or no formal schooling and illiteracy rates were high.

A company with TQM needs to work with suppliers and the customers. One of Wal- Mart’s major advantages in the retail industry is its supply chain process. Wal-Mart has a very close working relationship with its suppliers which allows it to gain access to merchandise far quicker than its competitors do. This is the same concept that a company that is implementing TQM must be able to work toward as well. A close relationship with suppliers can allow the company to have higher quality raw materials at a discounted rate and faster shipping. A manager who is actively part of company that is involved in TQM will see that all areas under his or her control are set up to add increase to the company’s bottom line. Just in the same way that a company must have close relationship with the supplier, a company must have a good relationship with the customer. Without customers the company doesn’t need to have any relationship with a supplier because products are not being sold and services are not being provided. A company that has a solid relationship with the customer base listens to the customer and find out what the customer is looking for and what the complaints are toward the company. Just in the same way that the Swedish people were happy because they had an active role with the government, customers can be satisfied with a company that allow them a voice.

Toyota developed the Toyota Production System after World War II at a time when it faced very different business conditions than Ford and GM. While Ford and GM used mass production, economics of scale, and bug equipment to produce as many parts as possible, as cheaply as possible, Toyota’s market in post-war Japan was small. Toyota also had to make a variety of vehicles on the same assembly line to satisfy its customers. Thus, the key to their operations was flexibility. This helped Toyota make a critical discovery; when you make lead times short and focus on keeping production lines flexible, you actually get higher quality, better customer responsiveness, better productivity, and better utilization of equipment and space. While Ford’s traditional mass production looks good when you measure the cost per piece on an individual machine, what customers want is a much greater variety of choices than traditional manufacturing can offer cost-effectively. Toyota’s focus in the 1940s and ‘50s on eliminating wasted time and material from every step of the production process –from raw material to finished goods- was designed to address the same conditions most companies face today: the need for fast, flexible processes that give customers what they want, when they want it, at the highest quality and affordable cost.

Abstract: This paper focuses on the crucial aspects of TQM right from introducing concepts in an organization, especially for those who have not traditionally tuned themselves too much with understanding customer needs and business processes. Major focus is on empowerments, as it plays very crucial role to identify the management culture before attempting to install TQM. In recent years the literature on change management and leadership has grown steadily, and applications based on research findings will be more likely to succeed. Visionary leadership may offer an overriding perspective for someone instituting TQM. Use of tested principles will also enable the change agent to avoid reinventing the proverbial wheel. Institutionalizing TQM principles as an organizations culture process for managing the transition from the existing system to the new system with synergies.

The third hypothesis tested is that TQM airlines are more effective in their operations. For an organization to be effective in terms of operations there is the need for every member of the organization to be involved and committed to this objective as the essence is to have a functional work environment which is efficient and focused on meeting customers’ demands. TQM implementation is holistic in nature; its success depends on how well each unit of the organization is able to work interdependently towards achieving the objectives of the firm. Thus measure such as management and employees’ commitment, decision making process, involvement of suppliers and flight delays and cancellation were used to test the efficiency in operations of the airlines. As it expected that the commitment of management and employees will aid the efficiency in operations of the organization. The findings confirmed that the TQM airlines are more efficient, this is due to the commitment of management, employees and the involvement of suppliers to the quality drive of the organisations. These airlines have a customer focused approach, thus have made their services more accessible to customers through numerous means. The researcher in the quest of this research observed that, unlike the non-TQM airlines, the TQM airlines have taken their services to the door steps of customers, by having several ticketing points outside the airport as well as the use of the online reservation system. This to a great extent must have affected their operations positively as adequate measures are taken in order to contain eventualities. This also buttresses the point of employee empowerment as observed in the previous test, slow decision have a boomeranging effect on other functional areas of operations. The slow decisions on the part of the non-TQM airlines does not allow for efficiency, although management seem to be committed, the negative impact of it affects the whole operation of the airline hence the dissatisfaction of customers.

do not seem to care. The consequences of such an attitude are lost customers and op- portunities for competitors to take advantage of the market need. Successful companies understand the powerful impact customer-defined quality can have on business. For this reason many competitive firms continually increase their quality standards. For example, both the Ford Motor Company and the Honda Motor Company have recently announced that they are making customer satisfaction their number one priority. The slow economy of 2003 impacted sales in the auto in- dustry. Both firms believe that the way to rebound is through improvements in qual- ity, and each has outlined specific changes to their operations. Ford is focusing on tightening already strict standards in their production process and implementing a quality program called Six-Sigma. Honda, on the other hand, is focused on improving customer-driven product design. Although both firms have been leaders in imple- menting high quality standards, they believe that customer satisfaction is still what matters most.

“buy our high-quality HDTV’s”, top-quality LCS monitors”, and superior-quality car stereo systems.” And the list goes on and on. But quality is much more than a punch line for sales and marketing advertisements. Developing a “quality” product or service means the organization is committed to customer satisfaction. Moreover, “quality” can serve as a measure of success; determining in part whether an organization can compete with rivals by offering high quality products and services at a reasonable price to the consumer.

organization imaginable, including schools, highway maintenance, hotel management, and churches. Total quality management processes are divided into four sequential categories: plan, do, check, and act (the PDCA cycle). In the planning phase, people define the problem to be addressed, collect relevant data, and ascertain the problem's root cause; in the doing phase, people develop and implement a solution, and decide upon a measurement to gauge its effectiveness; in the checking phase, people confirm the results through before-and-after data comparison; in the acting phase, people document their results, inform others about process changes, and make recommendations for the problem to be addressed in the next PDCA cycle.

Identifying the Best Practice. Management Software. What is the best practice management LAW OFFICE MANAGEMENT. Defining Practice

Many lawyers confuse PMS with docu- ment management software (DMS). In the quest to go paperless, many firms are look- ing for software that will help them manage digital documents. But while many PMS do have DMS capability built-in or have the ability to link with many DMS, most DMS do not have in practice management capa- bility. So although your DMS solution may go far to take you to the paperless law office, it will fall short of helping you stay on top of those ethical rules on diligence, communica- tion, fees (time tracking) and conflicts. Examples of Document Management Software are Worldox, iManage/Autonomy, OpenText and NetDocs.

Freeman believes that this competition is firstly because of the improvement of the global education market, and secondly is due to the reduction of the governmental funds that encourage organizations to look for some other financial sources, Freeman (1993). Therefore, identifying what does the quality mean in higher education as the first phase of quality work seems to be essential. However, still there is no one unique definition about the quality of higher education, there are plenty of these explanations that in somehow have industry perspective.
