Often, we focus too much on our desired results and not enough on the best way to get there. As W. Edwards Deming said “You can expect what you inspect.” That is, we don’t get what we expect, we get what we inspect.
Mr. Demings has been called the ‘Father of Quality’. His influence has helped people produce many great products and services for nearly one hundred years. However, disregarding this important concept regularly leads to poor products and poor results. This applies not only to business and industry but to your life and health as well.
