By John Hunter, author of the Curious Cat Management Improvement Blog.
Kevin Cahill, Executive Director of The W. Edwards Deming Institute provided an overview and status of the Institute at our last annual conference.
Kevin mentioned our updated web site, our presence on various social media sites and the quote web site we created last year.
A lot of people ask about my grandfather’s quotes. If you go to quotes.deming.org we put together a very cool site where you can actually see specific quotes my grandfather has made and then it will tie it back to where that quote came from (page 22 of the New Economics, Out of the Crisis, to a particular article). So it’s a fun way to see what those quotes are and we are continually adding quotes to it.
He also discussed the initiatives that the Institute is focusing our resources on: the Deming Education Initiative and the Deming Non-profit Initiative.
Kevin also announced The W. Edwards Deming Institute will be providing a new online learning program soon and that offering will be expanded greatly over the next few years.
