3. Necessidade de aprofundamento teórico da gestão da qualidade
4. Alguns contributos para o desenvolvimento teórico da gestão da qualidade
5. Outras áreas urgentes/emergentes
6. Considerações finais
O movimento da qualidade tem tido importantes desenvolvimentos ao longo dos séculos XX e XXI. As drásticas e frequentes alterações nas tecnologias, nas economias e nas sociedades levantam várias questões, muito consensuais, relacionadas com os perfis dos profissionais e as competências necessárias. As áreas de investigação variam bastante, abrangendo diversos temas, com mais incidência em estudo de casos, menos na conceção de metodologias e muito pouco na construção de teorias próprias. Assim, o papel da Investigação e Desenvolvimento (I&D) ainda não está bem definido, o que se compreende pela natureza transversal e multidisciplinar da temática da gestão da qualidade.
Neste artigo, pretende-se averiguar a necessidade de teorias específicas, trazendo à discussão algumas preocupações e desafios, com recurso a meta-análises e outros estudos de síntese, tendo por base a experiência dos autores desta investigação, enquanto editores da Revista TMQ – Techniques, Methodologies and Quality. É nessa qualidade que, neste trabalho, se apresentam, em termos conclusivos, algumas recomendações, com vista a ajudar a definir linhas de investigação e a escolher temas, bem como a escrever melhores artigos e a argumentar os contributos teóricos para a gestão da qualidade.
