Deming at the DoD: In the spring of 1988, W. Edwards Deming gave his four day Deming Seminar to a Department of Defense-only crowd at the Twin Bridges Marriott, across I-395 from the Pentagon. This was a key event in kicking off what became the Total Quality Management (TQM) effort across DoD. Lt Col D. Cragin Shelton attended this seminar from the National Guard Bureau. He will give his impressions of Deming over the four days, commenting on the DoD culture and the effects of Deming on about 2,000 Pentagon denizens. He will provide a high-view summary of the content of the week, with a few personal observations and comments thrown in.
