In today’s world, quality is a vital determinant of business success. Business organisations need to focus on quality on a continual basis if they want to remain in business in the long run. Large scale studies have revealed that those organisations which focus on quality continually usually have larger market share, greater profits, and a happier workforce. Thus, it can be said that quality is a key ingredient for business success.

Even in the not-for-profit sector, quality is now considered a critical success factor. While many of the quality ideas originated in the manufacturing set-ups, these can be easily applied to service organisations with appropriate adaptations and modifications.
