Dr. Deming 在1990 年的行程

Deming joined the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University in 1988. In 1990, during his last year, he founded the W. Edwards Deming Center for Quality, Productivity, and Competitiveness at Columbia Business School to promote operational excellence in business through the development of research, best practices and strategic planning.

In 1990, Marshall Industries (NYSE:MI, 1984–1999) CEO Robert Rodin trained with the then 90-year-old Deming and his colleague Nida Backaitis. Marshall Industries' dramatic transformation and growth from $400 million to $1.8 billion in sales was chronicled in Deming's last book "The New Economics", a Harvard Case Study, and Rodin's book, "Free, Perfect and Now".

Senge is the author of the widely acclaimed The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of The Learning Organization (1990).

他的變異(variation)觀為Shewhart-Deming學派中的主角,所以在1990年元月21日的講義中,列舉以下四條為其重點:(講義只 列條文,條文底下為作者之看法。)


吉田耕作的官方網頁http://yoshida-kosaku.com/ 有他跟Dr. Deming的合照
 還有Dr. Deming 在 1990.4.15給他的感謝Yoshida寄給他的論文:

Yoshida, K. 1989. Deming management philosophy: Does it work in the US as well as in Japan? Columbia Journal of World Business (Fall): 10-17.*

 Dr. Deming 除贊美之外,用by the way 方式指出該論文有一處英文錯用;

 ...encourage competition among divisions and departments.

 .Dr. Deming 將among 畫掉,改成 between .

對貨運系統的意見。美國州際商業委員會(ICC, Interstate Commerce Commission)在19909月,控告10家汽車貨運公司負責訂定貨運費率的主管,認為他們集體壟斷價格。這些貨運費率部門請我撰寫一份聲明,向ICC解釋,為什麼ICC有義務支持一個州際貨運的系統,並且指導它。以下就是我的聲明文本:

 Ed Deming wants big changes, and he wants them fast.
August 1, 1990... He has always looked younger than he is, but even with that he is clearly old. He moves slowly through the hotel lobby, preceded by his ample stomach, leaning forward slightly and looking straight ahead through his glasses. From a distance, he...

1012日為Dr. Deming 90歲慶生會(生日1014),他今年有三次手術,在醫院數周之久,不過他能參加ClareBob Mason* 家裡特別為他辦的生日慶典。慶生會超過百人參加,我的法國朋友Jean-Mare Gogue 特地從凡爾賽趕去參加(他寫信告訴我;The World of Dr. Deming 265 也有記載。英國朋友等有訪問他,我在SPC Press 看過,戴明博士很謙虛地說他對日本產業的貢獻是微不足道的,獲得勳章等純屬運氣。·  Henry Neave: The Deming Dimension 文末有《美國的戴明》影片中的訪問稿。

Welcome to ManagementWisdom.com

As collaborators with the late W. Edwards Deming and Dr. Russell L. Ackoff, we are pleased to keep the video rendering of their revolutionary contributions to management philosophy available to people around the world. This material is timeless.

It is the foundation for the steadily developing new worldview of:

Systems thinking
Management for continual improvement of processes and systems
Commitment to development of people, which enables organizations, teams, and individuals to become greater than the sum of their parts and improve the quality of life for more and more people.

The Deming Library and Dr. Ackoff'
s Better Management for a Changing World series are available on DVD. We continue trying to make the material more accessible for individual study and group instruction.
