Remembering Gipsie Ranney
Earlier this week, The W. Edwards Deming Institute learned the sad news of the passing of Gipsie Ranney, our first president. A resident of Brentwood, Tennessee and an avid supporter of the Nashville Symphony, Gipsie was an international consultant to organizations on management, quality improvement and statistical methodology. She co-authored Beyond Total Quality Management: Toward the Emerging Paradigm, and also contributed to Competing Globally Through Customer Value. Gipsie was a passionate scholar, advocate, and colleague of Dr. W. Edwards Deming, working tirelessly to advance the understanding, application, and joy of Dr. Deming's theory of management. In appreciation of her "outstanding contribution in advancing the theory and practice of statistical thinking to the management of enterprises worldwide," the American Society for Quality awarded her the Deming Medal for 1996.
In addition to an extensive international consulting career, Gipsie served as Director of Statistical Methodology for General Motors Powertrain Group from 1988 to 1992, following 15 years as a member of the faculty of the Department of Statistics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. While there, she co-founded of the University of Tennessee's Institute for Productivity through Quality, and she developed and conducted numerous seminars on quality improvement.
Gipsie graduated from Duke University with a B. S. in Mathematics and later earned a Ph.D. in Statistics from North Carolina State University.
We welcome our members to share their fond memories and pictures of Gipsie.

Even his colleagues do not wax enthusiastic about it

2009年的筆記,待查
Even his colleagues do not wax enthusiastic about it (the great idea).
-- W. Edwards Deming  {產官學一體適用的新經濟學} (The New Economics for Industry, Government, Education - 2nd Edition) p.117


ASTORIA, Ore. — Work, sometimes just the memory of it, is what brings the fisher poets to this faded port at the mouth of the Columbia River for a weekend each year.
They might wax about the versatility of a deck bucket or of romance in rubber boots, but they also describe a livelihood that can kill those who pursue it. And at a time when industries everywhere are in decline, this year some said that increasingly restrictive fishing laws had taught them about struggle long ago.

W. Edwards Deming的【新經濟學】《轉危為安》

對了,杜先生,如果您要研究企業系統的協調問題,我去年翻譯W. Edwards Deming的【新經濟學】(台北:經濟新潮,2015),應該可以參考。您看他談的系統論、變異論、心理學等,都很可參考。
杜:再次感謝您的寶貴建議!!
我有在博客來找到您建議的書<新經濟學>,剛好在特價(7折,315元),我剛好也有要買其它書,就順便在那邊買囉。
2009.3.2 《轉危為安》Out of the Crisis 一書,約可以用《明報月刊》的口號:
作者 陣容 強大
內容 博大精深
來形容。換句話說,是本很難得的書。
我們在上一本書,請WWS說它的成書經過。
這回讀Ernest Kurnow 的回憶 指出:
七零年代早期,他在紐約大學即請Deming 博士 寫下, 給普通人看。
此事寫在《轉危為安》 之前版《品質、生產力與競爭地位》 謝辭"之末段。......
