Total Quality Management (TQM) defines a management concept for long-term success through customer satisfaction. In a TQM effort, all members of an organization participate in improving processes, services and their work culture with a goal to meet or exceed the expectations of their customers. Modern airports have acknowledged the importance of ensuring a positive customer experience. Focusing on passenger satisfaction rankings and passenger spending, airports should review their strategies for the future to incorporate the concepts of TQM and customer experience.
Besides service level agreements and measurements, airports are starting to focus more on satisfaction drivers and customer expectations, while also adopting TQM techniques and methodologies of other sectors, such as logistics, hospitality and telecommunications. TQM is the ideal mechanism for airports to combine, coordinate and integrate the quality management initiatives in the diverse airport activities while ensuring continuous quality improvement. Customer service and experience has evolved into an integral component of every airport’s strategy and has similar principles with TQM. Both require a holistic approach and can become sources of competitive advantage and brand differentiation. When we look across other industries - for example, Uber and Airbnb – we can see great examples of how customer experience design and thinking can make significant, positive changes to a brand and an industry; all by putting the customer at the center of their business. This 5-day course provides you with practical guidelines and case studies using TQM concepts for you to adopt in your respective strategies, going beyond the compliance phase. It also analyses customer experience, beyond simple airport customer service, towards a seamless and memorable experience.
