Tomorrow is the final meeting of the Deming SIG at the IQA looking at Deming's system of profound knowledge. This will look at Systems and play the beer game. The link with Senge is clear.

I think they could have made larger claims for these meetings. Each of four elements in the system of knowledge has been considered over the year. Maybe there will be no definite conclusion but it has been an interesting project.

I am part way through re-arranging my bookshelves to roughly follow these new categories. Previously they used the structure of the Lancaster course on management learning. This course no longer runs as they now concentrate on leadership. With Deming it seems 'leadership' is in there somewhere but incidentally.
