About the Podcast
Beginning in May 2014, our podcasts have featured interviews with members of The Deming Institute community, including industry leaders, practitioners, educators, Deming family members, and others who share their stories of transformation and success through the innovative management and quality theories of Dr. W. Edwards Deming. The podcast is hosted, produced and edited by Tripp Babbitt.
There are currently two segments running:
"Deming Lens" - an opportunity for Tripp Babbitt to engage the Deming community in interpreting the wide-ranging aspects and implications of Dr. Deming's theory of management.
And interviews with people in the Deming Community.
