    IMO Total Quality Management (TQM) can be considered as a subset of BPR.

    You can have a look where it differs:

                                   TQM                             BPR

    * Level of Change    Incremental                  Radical
    * Starting Point       Existing Process           Clean Slate (totally new)
    *  Change               One-time/Continuous    One-time
    * Time Required      Short                           Long
    * Participation         Bottom-Up                   Top-Down
    * Risk                    Moderate                       High
