ABSTRACT

This review is aiming to investigate the integration of people, planning and process in a Total quality management (TQM) setting prompting organizational performance and their competitiveness. In order to compete for a good market position, organizations need to implement effective management strategies such as TQM. The term TQM is explained as “managing the entire organization so that it excels in all dimensions of products and services that are important to the customer”. However, TQM model goes beyond product, process and service quality. The objective of this review is to develop an understanding of TQM and its possible influence on organizational performance and competitiveness. This review will be looking at entrepreneurial orientation (EO), market orientation (MO), and organizational competitiveness attributes. As quality is a mixture of many interconnected efficiencies that makes the difference at the end. Likewise, quality is an organization’s first step towards market competitiveness. EO is an important factor which could lead to various advantages and added value if adequately implemented in the organization with other supportive strategic management initiatives. It is identified that the problem of organizations not accomplishing the anticipated performance through EO and MO is due to the deficiency of organizational inappropriate schemes and worthless practices. In addition, EO as alone is insufficient resource to enhance performance and achieve competitive advantages. In addition, organizational internal resources (resource base view (RBV)) are important for organizational performance. Continuous premium quality leads organizations to avail sustainable competitive position in the market. TQM, EO (internal resources) and MO (external resources) contribute to organizational intangible capabilities that lead organizations to achieve their desired performance and competitiveness. This review will look into and conceptually find why even there are sufficient literature on TQM, EO and MO available, but still the previous research have unable to provide a unambiguous and strategic avenues for practitioners to accept.
