Abstract


This article investigates whether the use of Activity Based Costing (ABC), Just-in-Time (JIT), and Total Quality Management (TQM) as strategic initiatives lead to improved financial performance in the Turkish textile industry. Strong evidence emerged that there is a strong positive association between using ABC, JIT or TQM and improvement in financial performance. This result confirms the previous results in terms of the relationship between the using of strategic initiatives and improvement in financial performance.

Keywords: Activity Based Costing (ABC), Just-in-Time (JIT), Total Quality Management (TQM)
