   HUMAN FACTORS AND TEAM DYNAMICS

  COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The hardest part of quality management to understand and apply is the most critical part: the creation, nurturing, and sustaining of an organizational climate based on the principles and practices of quality. Without this requisite, teamwork, employee empowerment, and continuous improvement degenerate into buzzwords that increase employee cynicism and decrease responsiveness to organizational goals.

Unless people learn how to formulate and maintain good working relationships, no management or team problem-solving technique, blueprint, or plan can effect real improvement in an organization's quality and business results. In this course you learn the "soft" or human skills necessary to promote and support Total Quality in your organization. The instructor begins with an exploration of individual style in managing, working alone, and working in teams. The instructor then examines the roles of managers, teams, and individuals along with approaches to conflict resolution, team building, and using teams for continuous improvement.

Companies that have been successful in implementing TQM have instilled a certain set of values and beliefs in their operating cultures. The course details these elements and discusses the benefits to companies that adopt them. Wherever your organization is in its efforts to improve customer satisfaction and competitiveness, this course provides line and staff managers with useful information and techniques they can take back to work and apply. Supervised final examination.

Prerequisite: No previous study of marketing and its components is assumed.
