A company in an effort to run its business requires a structured and systematic rule in providing direction and elements within the company to maximize its performance. One such structured effort is implementing TQM. Total Quality Management (TQM) is a paradigm in running a business that seeks to maximize organizational competitiveness through a focus on customer satisfaction, involvement of all employees, and continuous improvement of the quality of products, services, people, processes and organizational environment. According to (Kujala & Ullrank, 2004) and (Metri, 2005), organizational culture is one of the most important variables in the success or failure of a TQM program. The prevailing organizational culture is believed to be able to support TQM by providing a more conducive environment that paves the way for the successful implementation of TQM (Baird et al., 2011). Managerial behavior has been observed to have an interest in the job performance of employees in organizations (Andersson & Florén, 2011; Wong & Li, 2015) indicating that manager behavior strongly influences employee and customer satisfaction in the workplace.
