In this article, the writer notes that given the importance of effective management in any type of organization today, the recent attention paid to management initiatives such as the ISO 9000 series and the total quality movement approach embody a single primary component: the producers of products and services must achieve the highest attainable quality. The writer points out that the research shows that the ISO 9000 quality systems standards or their equivalent have been adopted in more than 90 countries as national standards around the globe and it would appear that the trend is gaining steam today. The writer concludes with the importance of the need for managers at all levels to emphasize compliance with standards than can be changed but still manage to reflect the core goals of any organization today.
