Topyekün Mükemmelleşme Sürecinde İnsan Kaynakları ve Kalite
Author: Haldun Ersen
Date of Publication: July 2003, 2nd Edition
ISBN: 975-92234-0-6

The new economy and trends emerging as a result of an accelerated change are leading us to new quests in the 21st century. The desire of global countries and organizations to survive by distinguishing themselves from their competitors in global markets has brought about change and the emergence of new corporate structures. This process results in a need on the part of organizations to improve themselves by adopting modern production methods. Achieving a competitive edge by distinguishing oneself requires organizations to focus on the human factor and address management strategies, human resources and high-quality output in a holistic manner. From the perspective of total quality management, organizations expect internal and external customer orientation, adoption of team spirit, focus on common goals and targets, and most important of all, measurable and assessable performance criteria. This expectation arises from organizations' desire to create a management structure based on human resources and quality policy and process-based targets. The book attempts to provide all interested individuals and organizations with a holistic perspective and a corporate roadmap by explaining in detail the functions of quality and human resources in the total excellence process. In an age where the human factor and intellectual capital are crucial, these concepts are shared with readers from a system and quality perspective.
