Do TQM interventions change management culture? Findings and implications

Qual Manag Health Care. 1998 Spring;6(3):1-11. doi: 10.1097/00019514-199806030-00001.


This study assesses the impact of TQM/CQI interventions on the culture and performance of top management teams. The findings suggest culture is related to performance but that TQM/CQI interventions are not associated with either performance or culture change. Implications for additional research and for practice are discussed.
