'Out of the Crisis' - The Deming Way
Seattle Seminar offers profound business practices to survive and prosper Dr. W. Edwards Deming ignited the worldwide 'quality' revolution SEATTLE, June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Attention all CEOs, leaders, entrepreneurs and students -- Companies today are in crisis and are facing increased costs, declining revenues and inconsistencies between policy and strategy. Organizations need to implement proven management ideas that will profoundly affect their bottom line. Beginning on June 22, a two and a half day seminar, OUT OF THE CRISIS, will present the management philosophy of the world renowned Dr. W. Edwards Deming to enable business to meet the current crisis head-on, boost productivity and create a unique competitive advantage.
Why are Deming's ideas the answer? In 1950, in an effort to revive their ailing economy, Dr. Deming was invited to Japan. Their industry was in complete ruins and "Made in Japan" was synonymous with poor quality. Over the next three years, management executives controlling 80% of the capital in Japan attended his many seminars, and Deming ignited Japanese industry and their economy. In recognition, the Emperor of Japan awarded Deming the highly coveted Second Order Medal of the Sacred Treasure. Two decades later a highly acclaimed documentary reintroduced him to America. Deming quickly became the major force behind the "quality control" effort in corporate America and companies around the world. The quality movement was off and running.
What are the secrets of Dr. W. Edwards Deming and why are they so relevant today? "Deming understood that quality was not the answer but the outcome of better leadership, management and practice," says Deming's grandson, Kevin Edwards Cahill, Vice President of The W. Edwards Deming Institute(R). "My grandfather recognized and predicted the impending global crisis years ago." Through their seminars, The Deming Institute identifies practices creating problems in an organization and introduces attendees to effective management practices that will lead them on a path to not only survive, but thrive. Cahill adds, "We are reminding people of this proven approach. It is available, ready to implement and vital for economic recovery. The time is now."
"Out of the Crisis," The Deming Institute's Seattle Seminar, to be held on June 22-24, will feature Deming Institute trained facilitators Lynda Finn, founder and president of Statistical Insight, and Jussi Kyllonen, Quality Systems Manager at Eaton Corporation Aerospace Operations.
"Out of the Crisis," June 22-24 at The Red Lion on 5th Avenue (1415 Fifth Ave in downtown Seattle.) For more information go to www.deming.org

EMMA 有一段問 答
"No -- I have never seen Mr. Elton," she replied, starting on this appeal; "is he -- is he a tall man?"
"Who shall answer that question?" cried Emma. "My father would say 'yes,' Mr. Knightley, 'no;' and Miss Bates and I that he is just the happy medium. When you have been here a little longer, Miss Fairfax, you will understand that Mr. Elton is the standard of perfection in Highbury, both in person and mind."
