A New Style of Management:

Shifting from “Me” to “We” Thinking and Action 

Presented by The W. Edwards Deming Institute®, & APICS San Fernando Valley Chapter


“It would be better if everyone would work together as a system, with the aim for everybody to win.  What we need is cooperation and transformation to a new style of management.”

Aim: This interactive workshop aims to reveal blind spots to teamwork and presents new fundamental concepts and strategies from the Deming Management Method.  These strategies shift organizations in a new direction, embedded with the vibrant benefits of a collaborative environment.

The W. Edwards Deming Institute® introduces a new 8-hour immersion program (over two days), for leaders at all levels of management.  The focus is on the foundations of teamwork and the connecting power and financial potential this provides to all organizations. As Dr. Deming believed, working together is fundamental to solving and preventing problems, while providing us the ability to “do more with less.”

Gain Insight and Understanding Into:

  • The broad value and applicability of the Deming Management Method
  • Increasing customer delight and loyalty
  • Better leadership decision making and ROI
  • Practices that lead to greater innovation, productivity, and competitiveness

Discover Opportunities for You and Your Organization to:

  • Focus resources on problem prevention rather than fire-fighting
  • Demonstrate the value of “analysis of root causes” instead of “root cause” thinking
  • Promote discussion about systems thinking and who is part of the system; leading to savings and increased customer value
  • Unleash the ability to do more with less resources
  • Remove fear, boost motivation and collaboration
  • Increase quality and continually improve
