The W. Edwards Deming Institute® Sustainability Strategy Program
Using a highly interactive format, The W. Edwards Deming Institute® Sustainability Strategy Program provides a stark contrast between “Organizations as Usual” and “Organizations as Unusual,” including a proposal for how to shift organizational resources from an emphasis on solving problems to an emphasis on preventing problems, as well as discovering hidden opportunities for gainful investment that incorporates Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Such a dramatic change requires awareness of how organizations both understand and manage systems, variation, people (psychology), and knowledge, the four interdependent elements of Dr Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge®, the cornerstone of his distinctive management method.
The W. Edwards Deming Institute® Sustainability Strategy Program provides an engaging review of Deming's Management Method (System of Profound Knowledge) for leading a professionally managed organization in the direction of Organizations as Unusual and includes training for the IEMA Certificate in Sustainability Strategy©

Edwards Deming Institute® is proud to announce a new 8-hour immersion program, targeted at leaders at all levels of organizations, with a focus on revisiting the foundations of teamwork, the connecting power and potential of all organizations.
