Note: Only key points are given. No quiz from this topic.

Participative Management and Total Quality Management (TQM) in libraries appear Well suited for each other. Both are “two systems of continuous improvement and centred on the needs of customers”. In participative management individuals or employees share in the vision making process and arrive at decisions. The structures and styles of participative management create conditions at work which enable staff to realize their potential, make greater use of their professional training and thus Improve the effectiveness of the service Bred. But Total Quality Management is a process which focuses on understanding customer needs and improving customer service and satisfaction. The TQM approach shifts the focus continuous improvement in systems and processes. Its motto could be “continue to improve it even if it aren’t broke.” Continuous improvement rests on the simple premise that a structured, problem-solving process produces better results than an unstructured one. Instead of just trying to “do better”
in an undefined, intuitive way, continuous improvement can enable libraries to set measurable goals based on quantitative performance indicators, and to monitor progress towards those goals.
