TQM works on the aforementioned theory in principal, it further goes on and says that it is an all encompassing, integrative philosophy of management for continuously and incessantly improving the quality of the products, services, practices whatever they may be. It was initially developed and worked on by American management consultants namely W. Edwards Deming, Joseph M. Juran, and Armand Feigenbaum respectively. However the methodology and nuances that comes along as how to apply it in practice was worked on by individuals such as Philip B. Crosby,  Kaoru Ishikawa along with Feigenbaum, Juran and Deming.As we see in today’s scenario which is by no co-incidence, the last decade or more so even has witnessed a fantastical growth in TQM application among all the global companies spanning different......

Impact of Motivation on Employees Performance

...quality) from every organizational member. Theorists of both cognitive and a cognitive orientations agree that managers should give considerable emphasis to tying organizational rewards to performance on the job Hamner, 1974; Porter & Lawler, 1968). The assumption (often implicit) in these attempts to encourage increased performance is that there is an additive relationship between externally mediated rewards and rewards which arise out of task performance itself. Therefore, if either one or both types of reward outcomes can be increased, total motivation or performance behaviors can be increased. In the late 1940’s a psychology professor called Harry F. Harlow (Harlow, Harlow & Meyer 1950) conducted one of the first true intrinsic motivational experiments ever performed, using a simple puzzle where a rhesus monkey needed to perform 3 simple tasks in a specific row to complete it. A simple task for a human, but a much more complex task for a little monkey. The experiment was performed on 12 primates over a 3-week period. Almost immediately the monkeys were able to solve the puzzle and they continued to solve it every time they were near it, without receiving any kind of rewards or recognition from doing so. Nobody showed the rhesus monkeys how to solve the puzzle or taught them that they even could solve it, but they still did it. Harlow concluded that it must have been due to an internal biological motivator that gave the monkeys a satisfaction or enjoyment from......

The Impact of Hr Focused Tqm Practices on Employee Satisfaction & Loyalty in the Financial Sector of Pakistan

Some studies have found that the use of TQM practices reduces manufacturing process variance, eliminates reworks and scraps, and improves quality performance (see Daniel and Reitsperger (1991), Flynn et al. (1995) and Schmenner and Cook (1985). In addition, there is considerable anecdotal evidence (Crosby, 1984; Hayes and Wheelwright, 1984; Gerwin, 1987; Harmon and Peterson, 1990) on the extent to which TQM initiatives enhance the potential for firms to improve their performance. More recently, empirical evidence suggests that there are direct and indirect relationships between the adoption of TQM practices and firms’ performance levels (Hendricks and Singhal, 2001; Kaynak, 2003). Fortune 1000 companies surveyed indicated that firms achieved greatest success when they pursued both TQM and employment involvement simultaneously. ......

Impact of Afghan War on Pakistan

...Impact of afghan war on Pakistan economy “Although history has been very unkind to Pakistan but its geo-strategic position has been a great asset to garner benefits from world great powers” (Stephen p. Kohen) • Introduction The conflict and instability in Afghanistan is the aftermath of 9/11 attacks and their regional implications had very negative repercussions, for the years following the US invasion of Afghanistan not only saw a huge influx of Afghan refugees across the border into Pakistan but also witnessed a sudden spike in the frequency and scale of terrorist attacks in Pakistan. The cumulative impact of these developments adversely impacted the overall growth rate in all major sectors of the economy. Pakistan continues to pay a heavy price both in the economic and security terms due to this situation and a substantial portion of precious national resources both men and material, have been diverted to address the emerging security challenges for the last several years. The rise of violent extremism and increase in terrorism in Pakistan due to instability in Afghanistan not only caused serious damage to Pakistan’s economy but has also been responsible for widespread human suffering due to indiscriminate attacks against the civilian population. This situation disrupted Pakistan’s normal economic and trading activities which not only resulted in higher costs of business but also created disruptions in the production cycles, resulting in significant delays in meeting......

Impact of Workplace Motivation on Performance

...it is not the punitive actions for bad performance which will bring the motivated employees but this reward system will do. This new thinking is driving away the organizations from “command and control” approach towards the “advice and consent” to motivate their employees. Analyzing the factors that affect job satisfaction, motivation and employee performance Agency theory could be helpful. Agency theory indicates the limits to which the organizations can hold their employees responsible for the organization performance. Agency theory can be use to solve the problems arise under conditions of incomplete and asymmetric information when a principal hires an agent. According to the agency theory the principal (owner or owners) must give delegate full authority to the agents (employees or managers) to work on their behalf and run the organization. Harrison R and Kessels J. (2004, Pp 25-26) The base behind this theory is that during the work for the organization the employee hired by the owner will try to achieve his own goals as will as owner’s goals. But according to Williamson (1985) things does not go as it is presume because usually the agent tries to avail the opportunity and try to serve his own interest more than the principal’s interest. The best way to solve this conflict of interest comes from the agency theory. According to agency theory the agents at one end have to achieve the organization goals and objectives and have to focus on maximizing the shareholders gain...

Currently, the greater impact of globalization is much more accounted to technological advancement and economic development around the globe. As local companies are pursuing international trade and trend of foreign direct investment is increased, marketers needs to realize that carrying out cross border trade or business differs from managing a purely local business in many ways. Countries are different from each other in terms of social and economic culture, political and judicial system. This Difference between countries involves various other marketing strategies. For example if a company markets a product in India will need a different marketing strategy than to market a product in Japan. Similarly it would require totally different knowledge or skills to manage workers in U.S.A than handling German managers. INTERNATIONAL MARKETING Also known......

Motivation to Refrain from Drugs

...Motivation for Refraining from Drugs Cindy Torres Psy/355 Monday, June 4, 2012 Julie Fenyk Motivation for Refraining from Drugs There are several things that influence brain structures and functions associated with the motivation to refrain from the use of drugs. Important factors are intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, heredity and the environment. Motivation can be challenging. In order for a person to change their behavior, an individual’s internal point of view and external forces must be considered. Environmental and biological factors play a role in a person’s desire to refrain from the use of drugs. However, brain structures and functions of the brain related to motivation play a bigger role in the ability to do so. Brain Structures and Functions The Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines addictions as a “compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; persistence compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful.” The human brain releases chemicals called neurotransmitters when we feel pain or pleasure. For example, a person touches a hot stove and immediately our brain registers the pain and tells us to remove our hand. This is a survival mechanism. Not only does pain cause us to react, but the neurotransmitters released also serve to reinforce this behavior whenever we react by avoiding it (painful stimulus). Our brain forms a neural pathway......
