Great Minds: Edward Denning

As part of Cazenovia College’s Great Mind Lecture series, assistant professor, Joni Koegel will present Edward Deming: Focus on Quality.

William Edwards Deming was an American statistician, professor, author, and lecturer. Professor Koegel will discuss how Deming’s fourteen points were dismissed by Americans and embraced by Japanese in the 1950’s. Using statistical methods, product quality improvement, and testing, Deming’s concepts eventually led to Japan becoming one of the United States’ toughest competitors in terms of innovation, quality of products, and economic power.
