The following goals were used to direct this study: 1. Determine which aspects of TQM principles were being used in industry education in Virginia Beach; 2. Determine if training departments using some form of continuous process improvement were showing increased benefits to the organization; 3. Determine if there was a need for more specialized methods of process improvement that could be used in smaller organizations where it would not be beneficial to implement the entire TQM process.
