I contributed an article to the Process Excellence Network’s Deming Files that was published yesterday: How Do We Know What We Know?. I took on the task of explaining the theory of knowledge, as one article in a four part series looking at the four components of Dr. Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge.
The other 3 articles are:
- Systems Thinking and the Three Musketeers by Eric Christiansen
- The Trouble with Motivation by Jussi Kyllonen
- Variation, So Meaningful Yet So Misunderstood by Lynda Finn
I hope you enjoy all 4 articles. Every two weeks a new article is published by the Deming Files exploring Dr. Deming’s ideas on management. The articles provide a nice dose of views on applying Deming’s ideas today. The network also has series on Drucker ideas and articles on many other management topics (six sigma, lean, etc.).
