The Union Japanese Scientists and Engineers (JUSE) has awarded the Deming Prize to 3 companies in 2011:
- Sanden Vikas Limited (India)
- The CPAC Roof Tile Company Limited (Thailand) – I am not sure if this link is for the right company (often divisions of companies apply and wether CPAC is a part of Siam Cement company I am not sure).
- Unimicron Technology Corporation (Taiwan)
Follow the links I included for the companies to see a bit about their management philosophies. As has been the case since 2000, India and Thailand again did well. Between them the are home to 27 of the 38 award winning organizations.
I have moved to Malaysia and have started some work in Singapore helping organization improve management performance, maybe we can get those 2 countries represented in the coming years (this isn’t a short term effort). I may also do some work in other parts of Asia and Australia.
