Executive Summary
In this report, ADNOC has been used as a case study organisation to guide implementation of a strategic quality change. The operations management in the organisation is informed by the need of establishing an effective practice to achieve their set goals and objectives which guides their approach towards people, performance, profitability and efficiency. The company focuses on quality which then guides their leverage on profits as they satisfy their client’s demands in the oil and gas sector. Their quality management strategies are guided by factors of agility, innovativeness, being efficient, excellent in services delivery to clients, focusing on value development and active collaboration. From the findings in this report, strategic quality change can be implemented through a focus on the strategies such as the quality circles, kaizen event and the 5s lean manufacturing tool. Further, design systems could be used in monitoring the overall implications of strategic quality change, their capacity to respond to external and internal business environments and to embed quality of culture in ADNOC which has similarly been evaluated in-depth. All the identified strategies are critical as they harness a progressive improvement in entity operations in their verge to implement strategic quality, identify outcomes of strategic quality change and determine the success of the organisation. In terms of recommendations, this evaluation has recommended on the need for ADNOC to increase their unit of production by lowering their overall costs of production by the identified strategies of total quality management. This must be anchored on partnership with the other players in the oil and gas sector in UAE and globally. Further, benchmarking their quality with others to harness high-level innovation has been recommended.

1.0 Introduction to the Organisation and Existing Quality Management Systems
The selected organisation which is Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), is a leader in the global oil and gas industry with over 40 years of active operations in this industry and headquartered in Abu Dhabi, UAE (Abu Dhabi Project, 2018). The organisation operations are anchored on the need to achieve high-level efficiencies through benchmark performance, integration of a balanced scorecard practice in their entire group, and also to align with key performance indicators. Some of the organisation quality management systems include Air Quality Monitoring and Management System (AQMS), which directs the organisation oil and gas operations. There equally exist other quality management systems that are intended to ensure that their oil and gas products are of high quality in their onshore and offshore operations. This is despite the existence of a significant ambiguity on the extent to which an organisation appreciates the contributing factors to the complaints made by its customers. This is also applicable in the case of complaints that need to be resolved by following the total quality management system. In this case, this report evaluates the quality management procedures and systems within ADNOC and implementing the strategic quality change, enhancing the sustainable monitoring of the evaluation systems for assessing the overall outcomes of change.
