Inside Quality Digest Live for August 24, 2018

Two great guests, plus an MEP success story and the importance of mindset

Published: Thursday, August 30, 2018 - 12:00

The dog days of summer have arrived, but fear not! We brought you another cool episode of QDL this past Friday, covering lean improvement, the Deming philosophy, leader psychology, and Industry 4.0. Here’s a closer look:

Century-Old Factory Gets an Upgrade with 6S
Penn-Troy Manufacturing Inc. worked with the Pennsylvania Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) center to implement lean improvement in their operating processes. The results, including lots of money saved and jobs retained, are quite impressive.

Interview: Kelly Allan
Allan is the chairman of the advisory council of The W. Edwards Deming Institute, and as such, he was the perfect guest to cover why Deming is even more relevant now than ever, and what to expect at the Deming Institute’s 25th Anniversary Conference on Oct. 5–6, 2018, in Manhattan Beach, CA.

How Leaders Can Foster a Growth Mindset
Stanford University professor Carol Dweck is a pioneer in the psychological import of mindsets… how a fixed one can be limiting, but one focused on growth can be liberating. Speaker and consultant Alaina Love’s article covers how this theory applies to management and organizational excellence.

Interview: Dan Jacob
Jacob is the research director and principal analyst for LNS Research. In this interview, he chats about their upcoming ebook covering Industry 4.0, Driving Operational Performance with Digital Innovation: Connecting Risk, Quality, and Safety for Superior Results.
