Isn’t it time to finish the transformation of management that Deming started? | Superperformance | Scoop.it
I was fascinated by the contrast between the management style that Dr. Deming was advocating and the one I learned at my MBA program.  The differences were stark, if not opposite.

The Illusion of Control

The Illusion of Control | Superperformance | Scoop.it

"Control is one of humankind's greatest illusions. Let's face it -- even with all the information available and expansive educational preparation -- unexpected events often interfere with our plans and our best efforts to control an outcome or an event (and even ourselves!). And what happens to us, to those around us, and to the teams and organizations we lead when things get disrupted?"

Dave Guerra (Author)'s insight:

Statistical Process Control (which applies the Super principle of #polarcomplementarity) is the only control I know of that actually works, harnesses predictability, which of course is the real job of management (process management) Everything else is "out of control" #LivingSystemsThinking #Deming

Meg Wheatley and Living Systems Thinking

Meg Wheatley and Living Systems Thinking | Superperformance | Scoop.it
Margaret Wheatley shares: "When my children were small, I had a slogan on my refrigerator that read: 'If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.' Perhaps that was my children's first lesson in systems thinking. We adults learn this, too. If others are struggling, we experience the consequences of their struggle. If others don't feel safe, we aren't safe. Great teachers have been trying to teach us this for thousands of years. Buddhism teaches that any one thing is here because of everything else. The great American naturalist John Muir said that if we tug on any one part of the web of life, we get the whole web. But we've been very slow to learn the lesson." Read on to learn how to see beyond the boxes and into the interconnected web of life, and how doing so can contribute to the well-being of all.
