Well the Leadership and Excellence is coming along nicely and as usual I left it till nice and late to get down to it.
Right from the off I must tell you I am not a big a fan of Dr. Demming. While I do agree with what Demming has to say on a lot of aspects, I am not as convinced and sold by it to the extend somebody like Vagelis is. However what I do believe is that Demming is a genius and has really has contributed a lot in so many various fields of management. He has managed to basically cover so many many areas and also make sense while at it.
As I went through the various theories for this PMA, I could see how so many of the theories could have links drawn with Demming's idea's either agreeing or contradicting.
Take the Psychodynamic Approach for example, this approach could have link drawn in regard to the Pschology aspect of the SoPK or even a new theory like Authentic Leadership which could again draws to a certain extend in aspects of system thinking and Psychology.
I hopefully will/have done a good job of linking what I belive in ( the leadership theories) with what I could be believer of ( Demming and his philosophies) by the end of this PMA.
