Intro to Deming Video
I've been doing a lot of re-reading (and some fresh reading) of the concepts of W. Edwards Deming recently. I've decided April will be “Deming Month” on the Lean Blog. It's not that we'll exclusively write about Deming, but I'll make a more concerted effort to highlight his teachings. I was hoping we could all discuss his impact on lean and the Toyota Production System.
I gave an lean overview talk once at a healthcare conference, and an attendee afterward asked, “How can you talk about lean and not talk about Deming?” My only answer for that was just time pressures of the talk. It's hard to cover everything in an overview.
Below is a nice 30 minute overview video of the Deming teachings and Deming philosophies. Part 1 (9 minutes) is below. Part 2 and Part 3 can be found here on YouTube also.

Would an interactive session be useful — since we now know that lectures or talks actually work against the human brain?
That’s likely why the 30 minutes appears long also.
Guess I am wondering how folks might assimilate and test or use the ideas. Thoughts?
Personally, I dig the videos. Thanks for sharing Mark!
