Mini-Quiz: Comparing ISO 9000 and TQM

by Ron Kurtus

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why should you use ISO 9000 first?

It helps to organize your business and record-keeping

It is less expensive than TQM for a beginning business

Because TQM is obsolete

2. Why is customer satisfaction important?

It cuts down time customers spend in the showroom

It results in repeat and new business

It is clever advertising

3. Why would a company misuse ISO 9000 or TQM?

It is more profitable to cut corners than to jump through hoops

Anything that gives a profit is acceptable

Their philosophy of business does not consider long-term results

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Improving your Business with ISO 9000. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
