W. Edwards Deming An Unknown American Statistician Author of Japan’s post-World War II economic boom Deming’s Vision Deming 14 points for management
An Unknown American Statistician In the early 1950s, Deming presented his ideas to big American companies, but they were all cool to his ideas For example, GM in particular felt it could not produce its products quickly enough given the consumer demand for new cars
Author of Japan’s Post-World War II Economic Boom The pursuit of quality is the key to higher productivity, bigger profits, more jobs, and therefore richer society Quality has to be pursued along every link of the supply chain Deming’s Ideas took hold in Japan’s industry, and we know how the quality of their products is valued, especially here in the US Deming never ran a business, but his teaching on quality control had many Japanese corporations beating their US competitors by the late 1970s
Deming’s Vision 100 percent committed to what he does The best manager is the one who communicates quickly, honestly and accurately One of his goal each day was to learn at least one thing from every person he met It is tough, exhausting, frustrating, arduous, uphill battle trying to get there, but pursuing Deming’s vision does yield tremendous bottom-line business results
