This paper discusses the reasons of failure of TQM Implementation in Indian Public Sector Undertaking. Based on the weaknesses observed in the existing systems and practices of implementation, a system structural model of TQM Implementation is proposed. Based on the experiential learning through interaction with the public sector undertaking, the model is a proposition to build Total Quality Management as a core competence. A case study is presented where the authors have been involved in advising a public sector undertaking relating to TQM implementation. Some of the significant learning points have been highlighted for enriching professional practice.
