By adopting Total Quality Management (TQM) strategies, business and industry have learned to work smarter and gain a competitive edge in the new global economy. Now, the same principles of Total Quality Management used in private industry are creating a quiet revolution in the public sector. Government is under constant pressure, the authors remind us, to deliver more services with fewer resources. To improve quality of service, increase productivity, and reduce waste, more and more government managers - from Little Rock to Washington - are turning to TQM. This book sheds light on applying TQM in the real world of government organizations - showing how to introduce TQM, overcome barriers to change, and make TQM a success story for any government agency. Drawing on extensive research and their own "school-of-hard-knocks" experience implementing TQM in a unit of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Steven Cohen and Ronald Brand present straightforward, practical advice on utilizing TQM in government settings. Total Quality Management in Government offers case examples that detail what organizational changes need to be made when TQM is introduced in government agencies. The authors discuss TQM successes in specific government agencies - including the U.S. Air Force, the Treasury Department, the Patent and Trademark Office, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and Blount Memorial Hospital in Tennessee - to reveal how the principles of TQM can be put into practice at all levels of government. And they provide selected charts and diagrams that show concretely how to apply the concepts and techniques of TQM within any governmental unit.

Skills and workforce development are at the heart of much research on work, employment and management. But are they so important? To what extent can they make a difference for individuals, organisations and nations? How are the supply and - more importantly - the utilisation of skill - current evolving? What are the key factors shaping skills trajectories of the future? This Handbook provides an authoritative consideration of issues such these. It does so by drawing on experts in a wide range of disciplines including sociology, economics, labour/industrial relations, human resource management, education, and geography. The Handbook is relevant for all with an interest in the changing nature, and future, of work, employment and management. It draws on the latest scholarly insights to shed new light on all the major issues concerning skills and training today. While written primarily by leading scholars in the field it is equally relevant to policy makers and practitioners responsible for shaping the development of human capability today and into the future.

​This book addresses the developing field of Work Disability Prevention. Work disability does not only involve occupational disorders originating from the work or at the workplace, but addresses work absenteeism originating from any disorder or accident. This topic has become of primary importance due to the huge compensation costs and health issues involved. For employers it is a unique burden and in many countries compensation is not even linked to the cause of the disorder. In the past twenty years, studies have accumulated which emphasize the social causes of work disability. Governments and NGOs such as the World Bank, the International Labor Organization, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have produced alarming reports on the extent of this problem for developed and developing countries. However, no comprehensive book is presently available to help them address this emerging field where new knowledge should induce new ways of management.​
