“14- POINT DEMING PHILOSOPHY AND MANAGERS” : AN APPRAISAL


Aswathy S Nair, Vijay Lakshmy K V

Abstract


Managers in the present competitive world have to face tough competition to survive and sustain themselves in their area of operation. There are various Institutions offering MBA degree courses but the worth of these degree holders is a matter of suspicion. When they have to deal with practical situations, at times they might be troubled because what they actually did learn in their classes and from papers may not provide them with the right wisdom of timely usage of learned matter. Also, there are philosophies put forth by various Quality Gurus which these managers have seen in black and white when they were students but how many have made a practical concern and consideration over those is again a doubtful affair. This study thus try to identify the opinion of present generation managers about the applicability of 14- point philosophy laid down by the Father of Quality Management, Dr. W. Edward Deming. This is basically a research paper done after conducting an opinion survey among managers in general without looking into their area of operation.
