Option #2: Quality Methodologies Comparison

Some of the more common quality and improvement methodologies and standards include Lean, Six Sigma, total quality management (TQM), and ISO 9000.

For this assignment, compare and contrast these concepts by highlighting some of these concepts:

  • What are some of the common tools or techniques for each methodology?
  • What types of industries would be a good fit for each of these methodologies?
  • Based on these methodologies, which do you think is the easiest to pair with project management or total quality management programs within an organization for the fifth level of maturity (e.g., continuous improvement)?

Your 2-to-3-page paper must be well written, follow the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements for writing and style, and have at least two outside references (not including your textbook).
