John was one of 12 people worldwide selected by the W. Edwards Deming Istitute to reconfigure Dr. Deming’s famous “Four Day Seminar” into the 2.5 day seminar “Out of the Crisis”. We knew each other through ASQ Influential Voices, John’s blogs and LinkedIn. After knowing him to have business trip in Hong Kong, we organized such meeting with HKSQ exco members for sharing John’s quality management experience in Deming’s way.
During the dinner, we discussed about Dr. Deming (Quality Guru), Dr. Russell Ackoff (American Organizational Theorist) and Taiichi Ohno (大野耐一) (father of the Toyota Production System)
After the discussion, I presented HKSQ the 25th Anniversary Year Book and souvenir to John.
We took a group photo with John Hunter and all HKSQ exco members who participated the dinner.
