The Big 5 Construct Egypt will host Daniel El-Tawil, General Manager at German Chemicals, as the event's speaker this year. He will present a seminar session titled "Introduction in Total Quality Management and Its Impact in Construction Field."
Here's what he told us ahead of the event:
Briefly describe the role of Total Quality Management in construction.
Total Quality Management creates a new management system focusing on the customer, by involving all the employees in continuous improvement.
What are the top 3 benefits of incorporating TQM in construction?
1. To reduce the projects time frame and total cost, by minimizing the probability of errors, through preventive actions.
2. To achieve high quality products by focusing on customer satisfaction.
3. To increase efficiency and effectiveness of everyone involved in the project through the integration and continuous improvement plan.
What are the obstacles one faces in implementing TQM in construction?
Industry culture and the resistance from the employees to change their regular ways due to wrong perception are a major obstacle. Also, the lack of time as a result of unorganized work, and the lack of employees involvement can affect the implementation of TQM.
How do you see TQM evolving in the next few years in Egypt?
TQM has become a need that will enable us to manage all the mega projects now in Egypt. Without TQM we will face the risk of unorganized processes, losing our main goals and not taking the correct actions from the first time.
TQM will add a value to our projects by fulfilling all the client's requirements and start the paradigm shift.
What will industry professionals learn by attending your presentation at The Big 5 Construct Egypt?
They will learn about the TQM philosophy and how to focus on their customers to develop their business through one team spirit by providing key notes with practical examples.
