Quality in the selected management concepts

Marek Bugdol,

Piotr Jedynak


The article presents the status of quality in various management concepts (in outsourcing, supply chain management, TQM). It has been assumed that quality status defines the function and/or the significance of quality in the ORGANIZATION management concept. The carried out studies have demonstrated that the term of quality is most frequently defined in the TQM concept (even though also in this case there are definition disputes). In the remaining concepts of pro-quality management authors refer most often to definitions given by the TQM precursors. The authors describe the role of quality (various approaches) and the fundamental determinants of achieving quality in selected management concepts.
