Dr. Edward W. Deming - 7 Deadly Diseases

Dear CQE friends,

Below pls. find the Dr. Edward W. Deming 7 Deadly Diseases. For your reading pleasure.

Seven Deadly Diseases

The "Seven Deadly Diseases" include
  1. Lack of constancy of purpose
  2. Emphasis on short-term profits
  3. Evaluation by performance, merit rating, or annual review of performance
  4. Mobility of management
  5. Running a company on visible figures alone
  6. Excessive medical costs
  7. Excessive costs of warranty, fueled by lawyers who work for contingency fees
"A Lesser Category of Obstacles" includes
  1. Neglecting long-range planning
  2. Relying on technology to solve problems
  3. Seeking examples to follow rather than developing solutions
  4. Excuses, such as "Our problems are different"
Deming's advocacy of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, his 14 Points, and Seven Deadly Diseases have had tremendous influence outside of manufacturing and have been applied in other arenas, such as in the relatively new field of sales process engineering.
Hope you enjoy this.

Till then, I will continuously post relevant information related to ASQ CQE.

Best rgds,

Eddie Kuang
