Lean and agile practices can be said to have started with the work of W. Edwards Deming.

Mike's talk will introduce the audience to the Deming Cycle, which is a cycle that helps us learn and improve, and to his 14 Points for Management, which gives leaders a framework for cooperation and the realisation of human potential. He will also give a background about Deming and his role in Japan.
