Dr. Deming said, “a bad system will beat a good person every time”. At this seminar you will learn to look at your organization through a new lens; a lens of how to make your system better – and thus get better results. You will gain new knowledge to remove barriers, increase efficiencies, reduce wasted time, boost motivation, and provide better insight into what’s really going on in your organization. And, you’ll discover how to measure what is (and is not) realistically possible for your organization to achieve.

The seminar explores simple and powerful principles. Topic areas include the four elements of Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge (a.k.a. The Deming Management Method):

  • Understanding of and Appreciation for your Organization as a System - How to lead & optimize a system - not destroy it. Foster respect and joy in work.
  • Understanding Variation - Conclusions we can/cannot make from data & observations. Actions to take.
  • The Theory of Knowledge - Is what we “know” really so? Learning - Improvement - Rational Thinking.
  • Understanding Psychology – The truth about how humans react and interact. Beliefs - Behaviors - Consequences.

Through enjoyable and engaging hands-on activities, small group breakouts, energetic work sessions, discussions and Q & A, you will gain visibility into what is holding you back – and where you can improve effectiveness, reduce costs, increase productivity, and accelerate growth and innovation.
