From the Publisher:

If you want to produce better quality software, be more productive, explore new technologies--this is the book you'll need. The difference between total quality management (TQM) and other quality processes is that it shows the steps in preventing defects by correcting procedures before the product is produced. Covers all the latest techniques and examples (one of which is the process endorsed by the Software Engineering Institute) needed to achieve TQM.
