Deming's 14 Point Plan for Continuous Improvement

I'm working on a lecture that covers Deming's 14 point plan for continuous improvement.  For those who are not familiar with Edwards Deming he is often referred to as the father of lean six sigma and contributed to Japan's reputation for high quality products as a result of consulting he did for the Japanese government under McArthur as part of the Marshall Plan.

The lecture I'm working on brings Deming's plan to bear first on residential construction in the US and will, later, apply the plan to commercial construction.  This is all part and parcel with the Smart Built Culture Series and the work I'm doing with a group out of Southeast Minnesota on a Pilot Study there.  I'll post more details about that Pilot Study and the Deming 14 Point Plan lecture soon.

My goal is modernize the Lean Six Sigma and other process improvement tools, like Agile and IPD and bring the right cocktail of tools to bear on our broken built industry.  Accordingly, if you know anyone that needs help understanding the legal and cultural implications of BIM and IPD have them give me a ring!
