When I read Rong's blog 'Deming's theory, the ultimate focus' in this morning, I am interested in his two main questions.
One is about culture incompatible.
Indeed, we come from all over the world, our ways of thinking and habits are different. So why do we force us to accept perhaps totally different ways of thinking , then put ourselves into the prison? If we learn things and culture is not compatible with ourselves culture, it is less useful in the practical.
Howerver, why don't we accept a totally different culture ? The more different , the more conflict ; then the deeper thinking, the more interesting. Furthermore, different cultures can develop and stimulate another ways of thinking. A great difference promote a greater progress. Oh, conflict is great. Conflit can bring a disaster, it also can bring a greater progress.
Another question is Deming's theory
We respect and appreciate Deming's great achivement and great contributions in the Japan's industry, and even in the world industry. But it is not all his theories suitable for all industries and all countries. No matter what, Deming is great. We thank his contributions and achievements.
Here, sincerely thank Rong's blogs. Haha...Wonderful ! Thank you, Rong.
BPR is an interesting tool . The following is about BPR's three phases:
First, 'discover' phase:
a) The business organizations' senior management discovered that they need to create a new vision or adjust the earlier vision in order to achieve a higher level improvement,
b) To determine what aspects can be changed within organizations' processes,
c) To discover the gaps between the existing processes and the future vision,
d) to measure the gaps in order to make a good preparation for 'redesign' phase.
Second, 'Redesign' phase:
a) To bind on 'discover' phase's gaps and visions,
b) To make a detailed plan in order to support the long-term vision.
Third, 'realize' phase:
a) The business organizations realize must change existing processes,
b) To execute the new strategy.
