Save the Date! April 16 - "Applying Dr. Deming's Methods in the Workplace"

By Jo Haberstok posted 03/21/24 04:18 PM


The full announcement will be posted soon, but here's a sneak preview.

Our Columbia Basin ASQ section's April 16 virtual meeting will feature presenter Steve Prevette and the topic "Applying Dr. Deming's Methods in the Workplace."

Attendees will be introduced to Dr. Deming's System of Profound Knowledge. This is an interesting mix of the "hard side" such as statistical analysis and understanding systems, with the "soft side" of psychology and culture.  We will discuss how Statistical Process Control interacts with Human Performance, Theory of Knowledge (how do I know what I know) with Operational Definitions and System Thinking.

Steve will relate personal stories, and stories from his mentors who worked with Dr. Deming, as well as his own experience with Nuclear Safety and teaching college students about quality assurance.  This will be a lively presentation, as Steve was known as the "passionate statistician" on Nuclear Sites and is a great storyteller. 

Come join us and participate in an ongoing Quality Story! 

There is no charge, but advance registration is required.  EMail  by March 24.
