About

“I should estimate that in my experience most troubles and most possibilities for improvement add up to the proportions something like this: 94% belongs to the system (responsibility of management), 6% special”

Aim

For attendees to understand and begin applying Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge to lead and manage their organizations.

Session Description

This seminar explores simple and powerful principles and is appropriate for anyone who manages people or who holds executive responsibility. Topic areas include the four elements of Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge (a.k.a. The Deming Management Method)

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.

This seminar explores simple and powerful principles and is appropriate for anyone who manages people or who holds executive responsibility. 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 & 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. Please join us!
