"It would be better if everyone would work together as a system, with the aim for everybody to win.  What we need is cooperation and transformation to a new style of management."

- Dr. W. Edwards Deming

 Overview: The W. Edwards Deming Institute® introduces a new 6-hour immersion program, designed for leaders at all levels of management.  The focus is on the foundations of teamwork and the connecting power and financial potential this provides to all organizations. As Dr. Deming believed, working together is fundamental to solving and preventing problems, while providing us the ability to be smarter at what we do.

Aim: This interactive workshop aims to reveal blind spots to teamwork and presents new fundamental concepts and strategies from the Deming Philosophy. These strategies will fundamentally shift organizations in a new direction, embedded with the vibrant benefits of a collaborative environment. This powerful new framework enables leaders to better manage their resources, including time, money, knowledge, equipment, and people.

Gain Insight and Understanding Into:

  • The broad value and applicability of the Deming Philosophy
  • Increasing customer delight and loyalty
  • Better leadership decision making and ROI
  • Practices that lead to greater innovation, productivity, and competitiveness

Discover Opportunities for You and Your Organization to:

  • Focus resources on problem prevention rather than fire-fighting
  • Demonstrate the value of “analysis of root causes” instead of “root cause” thinking
  • Promote conversations and practices of systems thinking, including who is part of the system; leading to savings and increased customer value
  • Unleash the ability to do more with less resources
  • Remove fear, boost employee engagement and collaboration
  • Continually improve quality

This program is presented in conjunction with the W. Edwards Deming Institute® & College of the Canyons Employee Training Institute.
