Diploma in Quality Management
  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • Quality management is an integral component of many businesses and organizations, both small and large. Of all quality management system regimes, the ISO 9000 family of standards is probably the most widely implemented worldwide.

    Alison's diploma course will introduce you to quality management standards such as ISO 9000 and its specifications and costs. Topics such as "Cost of Quality" and what tools are used in "Total Quality Management" (TQM) are covered in more detail. The "Cost of Quality" is a term that's widely used and widely misunderstood. It isn't about the cost of creating a quality product or service, rather it's the cost of not creating a quality product or service. Popular TQM tools include Checklists, Fishbone Diagrams, Histogram Charts, "Plan-Do-Check-Act" (PDCA) Cycle and Pareto Diagrams. Any business with high service quality will meet customer needs while remaining economically competitive.

    In this course you will learn what service quality means and how it can be applied within service industries. You will learn more about the practices and procedures that can be used to improve customer satisfaction.
