It has been 7 months since the passing of my wife, Carolyn. There have been ups and downs as you might imagine, but I find that a new direction is emerging and I am pretty excited about it. With the election of Donald Trump there will be an unprecedented opportunity to adopt the Deming Philosophy as we perhaps should have done in 1980. Deming Started his work in Japan in 1950. After having his System of Profound Knowledge at work for just 30 years, Japan had set a new standard for quality the world over. There is no reason business in the U.S. can’t replicate the Japanese Miracle.
