General Meeting: March 2022 - Quality as an Organizational Strategy

No Image Description
Dr. Edwards Deming challenged leaders that they needed a new theory of management. A theory that took the principles and practices of quality, grounded in Profound Knowledge, and adopted as an organization-wide strategy. Quality as an organizational strategy is a system of methods--establishment of purpose, organization view as a system, a system for obtaining information, planning for improvement, and managing individual and team improvement efforts--that leaders can use to develop a learning organization and pursue Deming’s charge. Join Dr. Williams, co-author of the upcoming book Quality as an Organizational Strategy, and to learn more about this approach to continuously improving quality across a system.
