Discuss the approaches of Deming, Juran and Crosby in managing quality. Compare the similarities and differences in their approach in a tabular form.
Weegy: Although quality and quality management does not have a formal definition, most agree that it is an integration of all functions of a business to achieve high quality of products through continuous improvement efforts of all employees.
