3 November 2020 – Nagpur, India – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to quality and project management. The new resource is titled “Contribution of quality management tools and practices to project management performance”, a paper by Miryam Barad Tzvi Raz published in the International Journal of Quality & Reliability Management, 2000.

Through this work, the author aims to investigate the adaptation of global quality management tools, which have been proven to be effective in manufacturing and other areas, with a focus on generic quality needs. This has been done through the data analysis from a survey of project managers in software industries in Israel. The author also integrated the building blocks of two studies: Ahire et al. (1996) who considered a manufacturing area, and Anderson et al. (1998) who considered the logistics area.

The survey findings pointed out critical quality needs of the project management process including 1.  improvement of process control and process control analysis, and 2. improvement of training.
