Employee empowerment (alpha = 0.81)[edit]

Description[edit]

Through a detailed analysis of the literature, twelve constructs of integrated quality management strategies were identified: top management commitment, customer focus, supplier quality management, design quality management, benchmarking, SPC usage, internal quality information usage, employee empowerment, employee involvement, employee training, product quality, and supplier performance. Using a survey of 371 manufacturing firms, the constructs were then empirically tested and validated. For this purpose a confirmatory factor analysis approach was used.

Items[edit]

  • Our line workers inspect the quality of their own work; inspection is not the responsibility of an inspector.
  • Line workers are encouraged to fix problems they find.
  • Line workers are given the resources necessary to correct quality problems they find.
  • Line workers have technical assistance available to them to help them solve quality problems.
  • A problem solving network is available to line workers in solving quality related problems.
