Managing for Organizational Quality--Theory and Implementation: An Annotated Bibliography.
Backaitis, Nida; Rosen, Harold H.
This bibliography is intended to provide recommended readings and videotapes on managing organizations for quality improvement. The target audience consists primarily of managers and leaders for quality in the Department of Navy activities. The aim of this volume is to bring together a collection of materials drawn from a wide variety of sources, some of which are not typically associated with quality improvement. This is because the Navy Personnel Research and Development Center has long recognized the need for an understanding and application of principles and concepts from such areas as organizational change, leadership team functioning, reward systems, statistical thinking, and accounting to effect a major transformation in organizations. The integration of theories and knowledge from these areas will serve as the basis for orienting an organization toward quality and for designing organizational systems for the future. The document is divided into 11 sections that include such titles as: (1) "The Competitive Position of U.S. Industry"; (2) "The Quality Philosophy and Management Principles for Improvement of Quality, Productivity, and Competitive Position"; (3) "The Management of Organizational Change and Transformation"; and (4) "The Roles of Management and Leadership in Improvement of Organizational Quality."
