W. Edwards Deming Principles and Small Business Management

Are you forward thinking, opinionated and interested in improving small business management? If so, I believe this may be a place you will enjoy. When Dr. W. Edwards Deming went to Japan in the early fifties, he found a nation that was largely destroyed. He shared with Japan a vision of management that helped to transform the Country into a world leader.

Today in the West, we see huge corporations bankrupt and crumbling. Many small businesses too are failing and even more are not profitable. I believe the Fourteen Points of Dr. W. Edwards Deming are a way out of the crisis. I met Dr. Deming in 1984 and began studying his management philosophy. The transformation to my auto repair business was astounding.

Can a Small Business Still Compete?

Thibeaux (pronounced Tee Bow) owned a small hardware store. It was no larger, better stocked, are much different than the other hardware stores in town. Thibeaux did a good business mostly because he was convenient to his group of clients. As time passed a few more hardware stores opened and Thibeaux started to notice a drop in sales. Not drastic at first, just a slow day every now and then.


The Boss and The Leader

Bob sees himself as the voice of authority, "Do it this way because I say so."

John sees himself as someone who enables, "What do you need to best get this done?"


Learning More

When discussing improvement I often refer to Dr. W. Edwards Deming. His work is the basis I have used to build my own business. Occasionally I am also asked where a person might learn more about Dr. Deming's philosophy. 


The Cost

The cost of solving these problems is relatively low, the cost of allowing them to exist is unknown and perhaps unknowable

Did The Dinosaurs Realize What Was Happening?

Did the dinosaurs realize what was happening to them? For millions of years they did exactly the same things that always worked in the past. Unfortunately for them, the world was changing. Creatures that were able to adapt survived, those that could not perished.


Company A , Company B

What happened to company A? Why is Company B successful? How does this relate to the auto repair industry?
