The Juran Model

The journey to better business results and sustained performance begins with an understanding of the Juran Model

For 40 years Juran has helped global organizations grasp some simple concepts that lead to sustained performance. This begins with understanding the Juran Model and the Juran Framework for Excellence that applies to all industries, businesses, products, services, and processes.

The Juran Model

Five Components

The Juran Model consists of five key components, which together can lead to better business results and a culture of excellence:

1.Understanding the Guiding Principles that lay the foundation for excellence

2. Improving the customer experience

3. Creating an infrastructure that engages employees to make improvements using the right methods and tools

4. Process improvement teams to drive process efficiency

5. Leadership and workforce engagement

The Guiding Principles

The first step to establishing a culture of excellence is to understand the guiding principles that underpin the Juran approach to quality improvement.

Embrace Quality – Quality is a word that is commonly used by customers. To help drive better business performance, you must understand the two aspects of what quality means to them:

  • Features that drive sales
  • Freedom from deficiencies of failure

Superior ‘quality’ products and services always leads to sustainable financial performance.

The Juran Trilogy must be implemented to ensure goods and service superiority. This requires the implementation of three universal principles:

  • Quality planning (design quality in)
  • Quality control (maintain what is designed)
  • Quality improvement (create breakthroughs in current performance)

The Pareto Principle: You don’t have to improve everything. Your leaders must focus on the vital few issues that are preventing positive results.

The Juran Excellence Framework

Solutions to suit a range of individual and organisational training needs

Once the Guiding Principles are understood by leadership, we work with your organization to adopt its own ‘framework’ based on the Juran Excellence Framework below. The Framework consists of three pillars:

1. Developing a strong foundation and business strategy to be the best
2. Understanding and implementing ‘enablers’ – the universal principles
3. Sustaining real business results

 

 

Creating Your Roadmap

Actionable steps to performance excellence

Once we have established your framework, we will work with you to create a roadmap that outlines how quality can be improved and sustained across your organization, in turn leading to better performance, productivity and profitability.
