Coast Bellevue Hotel - 625 116th Avenue Northeast, Bellevue, WA 98004

Event Description

Dr. W. Edwards Deming oftentimes was known as the Prophet of Quality, but many people fail to understand his impact and influence on waste reduction, the early Lean movement, and the resurgence of Japan’s quality and productivity.  Learn about Dr. Deming (as personified by Mike Micklewright), his principles (14 Points), how he would have viewed today’s business and quality world against his 14 Points, and his viewpoint on today’s trends in Lean, Six Sigma, Lean Six Sigma, Root Cause Analysis, and ISO 9001.  Learn about Dr. Deming -- the man, the prophet, and his principles and how they so much impacted the Toyota Production System.  During this presentation, Mike will alternate between being Dr. Deming and himself to provide an entertaining and informative contrast in presentation styles. 

Ceptara Managing Partner, Chris Lindstrom, is the Vice Chair of the Seattle section and invites you to get involved with your local ASQ section. If you're in the Seattle he looks forward to seeing you at the meeting.
