Min-Fen Tu, Head of Social Practice and Strategy Section, Center for Sustainable Development and Social Innovation, gave a speech on “Enhancing Quality Management through Goal Management: From a Value-Oriented Accountability System” and started with the “Sustainable Report” and “Mid- to Long-Term Benefit Evaluation”, hoping to achieve the goals of “Social Dialogue”, “Impact Assessment”, “International Interconnection”, “Policy Improvement” and “Sustainable Development”. Then, she introduced the framework of benefit evaluation, the 'Social Practice Accountability System', and explained the operation of the 6 modules of “Vision Planning”, “Goal Management”, “Performance Design”, “Practical Action”, “Benefit Evaluation” and “Value Communication”, hoping that everyone can face the challenges of sustainable development together in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) environment. Among them, “Goal Management” can be implemented through the OGSM Strategy Table (Objective, Goal, Strategy, Measure/Dashboard, Measure/Plan). Strengthening the P in PDCA allows every employee in a changing environment to plan and write a plan in one table for later coordination, and strengthens the 'vision' element that is missing in the PDCA cycle. By setting performance indicators between strategy and plan, thoroughly implementing strategy and achieving goals.
Der-Wen Chang reminded in the end that the purpose of holding TQM training is not only to review basic concepts, but also to provide some new concepts and knowledge to help solve problems that may be encountered in current business or promote new tasks. He expected everyone to fully demonstrate the achievements of TQM promotion over the past 30 years and successfully complete various tasks, as well as pass the school affairs evaluation of the next third phase.
