Continous Improvement

Be it Organisational learning, Deming, Efqm or Hoshin Kanri....they all talk about continout improvement. All have different ways of getting there. While Deming has his own theories such as profound knowledge, 14 points, Efqm has enablers and results, OL had the single loop and double loop cycles, and Hoshin Kanri has has the pdca cycle. They all tend to focus on continous improvent according to me.

Our class too has continously improved, be it mini projects or pmas or coming to class on time...haha

CBE PMA & Gilberts view on bloging

To be honest I too havent been very effective in terms of time management when it comes to the CBE PMA. I am just half way through and the deadline is this Monday. This week I put in a lot of hours in the miniproject. I would be surprised if I put in 20 hours on the project.

But I do agree with Gilbert that we put in much more effort in the mini projects than blogging and the mini projects should carry more weightage. But now when I look back my critical analysis has improved because of bloging but I do feel it should probably be 10% of our grade and not 17 %.

Deming– Profound Knowledge and leadership

After reading Demings Profound knowledge I realised that a leader has to be knowledgeable and intelligent. He must understand and appreciate the system and the reason for variation. But this is against what we talked about in class. The whole class agreed on "Anyone can lead" as long as he or she can get work from others. Then were we wrong in class? I think may be. I think its very important for a leader to know whats happening with a good presence of mind. He needs to be intelligent. But one can work hard to be intelligent as we discussed in class by reading or by experience so in the end it does boil down to any one can be a leader or we would not have the leadership module......
