Dr. Henry Neave created 12 Days to Deming to take you on a journey to deeply understand what Dr. Deming taught and to thus achieve a paradigm shift in thinking—enabling you to understand how genuine organisational improvement can be achieved.
Henry (pictured right with Dr. Deming) was the W. Edwards Deming Professor of Leadership & Management in the Business School of Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom. In 2001, he received the American Society for Quality's Deming Medal, he is an Honorary Fellow of the Chartered Quality Institute, and is the author of The Deming Dimension. He had the privilege of working alongside Dr. Deming at many of his four-day seminars, as well as conducting many of his own in various parts of the world. Henry is a natural educator and his talent is apparent in this course.
The Geelong Quality Council regularly hosts a free 12 Days to Deming study group, with weekly one-hour online group sessions led by Richard Hamilton. Participants can review, discuss, and share their insights about the material from each day in weekly sessions. Dr. Jackie Graham, who worked closely with Dr. Deming, will mentor the study group throughout.
