important information in here, anoying way to deliver it

Used the book in Organizational Theory. It is an easy ready, lots of pictures and charts, very interesting information contained within, however delivery can be anoying. The executive's voice is always talking to himself and appears to never have done anything right. its audience is for people who know what MBO and TQM stand for, however even if you dont its got great information contained within. 200 or so pages, very easy read .

Very Practical and Revealing on Quality Management

A definite read for the person who needs to know the practical issues about Quality Management.

Ideal introduction to Deming's approach to management

One of few books about Deming actually endorsed by Deming himself - "It is a pleasure to commend this book to anyone for easy reading of the principles of management..." (Foreword). A step-by-step, practical introduction to the basics of Deming's management philosophy, far easier to read than Deming's own books, but not attempting to reach the depth of the system of profound knowledge outlined in "The New Economics." Of particular use to managers and students in understanding Deming, and to educators in preparing several famous demonstrations, including the Red Bead Experiment and the Funnel Experiment, with ample illustrations. This is not a lecture, but a self-paced "fun" substitute for "the real thing" (Deming's four-day seminars). Highly recommended.

A must read for Deming Devotees

This book is unique. It has a format that shows f three levels of the Deming philosophy. It deliniates the viewpoint of the man who led those amazing seminars, It brings the subject to earth with a narrative, and it supplies the wonder of a first-time participant. This is the book I give my students when they ask what Dr Deming was like.

Quick breezy book reviewing the basics of a four day seminar

Authors take the reader through a typical four day Deming seminar. They lead a reader thru a seminar through the eyes of an executive and the authors add their comments. Portions of Deming's seminar are legendary and the authors make you believe you're there for the marble test. Deming had approved this book and one of the authors had been a facilitator for a number of Deming led seminars. If you want an easy introduction to statistical control, this is the book for you!
