WHY ATTEND (or recommend others to attend)

We all get caught up in day-to-day activities of running a company. We forget that an executive's most important activity is to work ‘ON’ the business - not ‘IN’ it! 

Shouldn’t we be working on the quality of the management team, or improving the overall quality of the company? Shouldn’t we be exploring topics such as:
  • What is variation telling us? About the process? About individuals in the process? Economic control? Stability? Types of Actions?
  • How to work as a System? Interdependencies? Obligations of components?
  • Understanding people and their interactions with each other, circumstances, systems?
  • Knowledge in terms of how it is created & revised. How the choice of concepts rests upon usefulness for action.

Here is your opportunity to talk to leaders sharing their experiences and views about how Dr. Deming’s transformational ideas changed their organization, lives, and how they see the world. Learn how leaders created organizations that serve a useful purpose, produce dynamic and meaningful change, and manage them well.
