Principles of Total Quality

- Describe each quality principle and show how it is illustrated in the article.
- Analyze the relationships among the three quality principles.
- Examine whether the principle in one example might apply to other examples.
- To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
- Your assignment should be addressed in a 2- to 3-page document. (Has to have introduction, headings, conclusion, and reference page).
