DEMING AND LEADERSHIP – USAMA NADEEM (LEADERSHIP)
Deming regarded by many as the quality guru, has established a lot of methods and guidelines for managers and leaders to handle organizations effectively. Deming has emphasized on the role of top leadership as the basis for success for any organization. He has described the role of leadership as the motivators, guiders and helpers and not as dominators and dictators. The 14 points and the system of profound knowledge are excellent guidelines for leaders to lead effectively and have brought great results when applied in the Japanese industries post World War period. Basically, leadership was one of the most important points that Deming has emphasized on and according to him the leadership has to have sound knowledge of the system and also the variation that is present within the system.
So, if we follow Deming theories and follow his precious guidelines we can establish effective leadership and gain success in the future because if the leaders play the role of a mentor, train people around them and try to take the best out of the workforce, which can prove to be more or less the perfect formula for success.
