Research the philosophies of the leading thinkers (Deming, Juran, and Crosby) behind today’s quality movements and fill in the matrix blanks with your understanding of each person’s philosophy dimension. The Project Management Institute’s philosophy dimensions are filled in for you to provide an example.

Then, based on your understanding of the individual philosophical dimensions, identify how you would approach quality for your project (project chosen in Unit 2) based on the project management focus of “conformance to requirements.” Your paper should start with which philosopher’s approach best aligns with your project’s requirements. Outline in your paper how “conformance to requirements” looks and which philosopher’s approach would help achieve the highest quality results.

Assignment Requirements

You will be evaluated on your understanding of the individual philosophies and their relative application to your project. The minimum length of the Assignment is 3 pages, double-spaced, not including a title page or a reference page. You need to ensure you fully address each and every criterion in the grading rubric. Please remove the Project Management Institute’s philosophy dimensions from the table before submitting your assignment, as this is just an example.
