Take Your Organization’s Performance to the Next Level

Aileron is excited to host The W. Edwards Deming Institute and two Deming experts. They’ll present a two-and-a-half-day workshop that shows how to apply professional management to your business using core concepts from Deming. Through small-group breakouts, work sessions, and discussion, you’ll develop a systems view of your organization and see how you can improve effectiveness through reduced costs, increased productivity, and accelerated growth and innovation.

What Our Community Says

“Dr. Deming’s Theory of Management has been explained in an applicable way so we can take this information and implement meaningful change.”

“The department I manage employs about 20 people. We talk about functioning as a team but ultimately everyone functions independently. The Deming Management Method will be instrumental in changing the culture of our group and our collective success.”

“It was an excellent use of my time – knowing there’s a system out there that makes it more about the company system and not the people.”
