Current loctn: reading list > what is total quality control

Kaoru Ishikawa.  What is Total Quality Control?  Prentice Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ.  1985. 215pp.

This is a translation of a book by the noted Japanese quality control expert, Kaoru Ishikawa.  This book presents a great deal of the philosopy behind Total Quality Control.  Ishikawa provides a great deal of material for thought, and this book presents many ideas which are only noted upon a second or third reading.  I feel this book is quite valuable, less for providing a clear framework for action than for provoking thought and confronting conventional approaches to management.  And the author's status lends considerable weight to the ideas presented.
