W. Edwards Deming
William Edwards Deming (October 14, 1900 – December 20, 1993) was an American engineer, statistician, professor, author, lecturer, and management consultant. Educated initially as an electrical engineer and later specializing in mathematical physics, he helped develop the sampling techniques still used by the U.S. Department of the Census and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In his book, The New Economics for Industry, Government, and Education, Deming championed the work of Walter Shewhart, including statistical process control, operational definitions, and what Deming called the “Shewhart Cycle” which had evolved into PDSA (Plan-Do-Study-Act).

My brother saw an article in the college newspaper where he teaches – and he attended this presentation to snag this autograph for me.

The Late W. Edwards Deming Estimated That Around 94% of the Possible Improvements Belong to the System – the Responsibility of Management
I am thankful for all of the sharing he did in books and presentations!
Do you have specific “lessons learned” from his teachings?
