Abstract
This U.S. Bureau of Mines report reviews the first 2 years of the agency's progress in implementing total quality management (tqm), which the agency refers to as quality improvement (qi). All employees have been trained in basic tqm concepts, a cadre of facilitators has been selected and trained, and 13 Bureauwide teams are addressing specific issues that were identified by Bureau employees nationwide as problem areas. Also in place are a quality council composed of the Bureau's top executives, a quality management board, and eight qi working groups to provide a national qi infrastructure. There are also quality steering groups at each Bureau location nationwide to address local concerns. In addition to the narrative text, the texts of salient memoranda and other documents are included as appendixes.
