GSCM 326 DeVry Week 2 Discussion 2
Quality Awards and Standards (graded)
The authors of our text talk about the Baldrige Award throughout their book. In previous versions, they even designed their text around this award. Given that our course is about TQM, an in-depth discussion of the Deming Prize would seem to be appropriate since it is the framework of company-wide quality control in Japan, which embodies what we call TQM in the United States, but is hardly discussed in our text.
So let's do some research. Put on your investigative hats and see what you can find about the Deming Prize. You can use the Internet or any other sources you have available.
How do you see the Deming Prize criteria fitting into TQM? How does the Deming Prize compare to the Baldrige Award? What are the differences and similarities between the Deming Prize and the Baldrige Award?

Cost of Quality (graded)
Although a balanced scorecard is probably the way to go, most companies don't seem to have a clue about the more fundamental aspects of quality, such as the cost of quality. So let's start here. Just what do we mean when we talk about the cost of quality? What major areas does it include?
