Applying superior management theories can take your organization out of a rut and catapult it to success. Dr. Howard Gitlow has synthesized “Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Management” that incorporates Dr. W. Edwards Deming’s management theory (the System of Profound Knowledge) and the 14 Points for Management), the Japanese Way of Total Quality Control administrative systems, Six Sigma Management tools and methodologies, and Lean Manufacturing. It is a very strong management style that may help your company enhance its culture by respecting its people and fostering cooperation to a whole new level.
The Inception of Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Management
Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Management is a theory that consists of three parts: (1) the Macro Model (Dashboards without irrational targets, goals, quotas, and deadlines), (2) the Micro Model (Projects and Tasks that replace many of the requirements for performance appraisal systems), and (3) the Management Model consists of Dr. Deming’s Management Theory (the System of Profound Knowledge and the 14 Points for Management), as well as the administrative systems of the Japanese Way of Total Quality Control. This theory enables an organization to trace a problem to its source and fix it. The manager can readily see the problematic metric that is underperforming and assist employees in making their work cheaper, faster, and better, with a higher degree of joy in their work.
Dr. Gitlow wishes to “promote joy in work to release the power contained in intrinsic motivation,” but this can only be accomplished if the organization’s structure is sound and its employees are willing to embrace change. There are several benefits to following this approach, and to top it all off, employees will feel at home in the organization and will be inspired to perform even better. Dr. Gitlow wishes to disseminate Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Management theory to firms and colleges so that they may begin to reap the benefits.
A Learning Platform
Dr. Gitlow has even created a platform for people to begin learning by enrolling in two 20-hour Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)s on Deming-based Lean Six Sigma management. These courses will teach you how to use this theory successfully and will also provide practical examples that will benefit you straight away. Furthermore, you can become certified as a Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt by the Miami Herbert Business School of the University of Miami. The courses can be found at elevate.miami.edu. Dr. Gitlow’s aim is to make everyone experience joy in work. This shift in the nature of capitalism will benefit the United States. So, take the courses now and become a management expert to benefit you and your organization.
