Obstacles (Deming)

  1. Hope for instant pudding
    • There is no single change that will achieve all desirable results.
  2. The belief that solving problems, automation & gadgets will cause the required transformation
    • Elimination of problems is not an end in itself (even if it was possible)
    • IT, specific 'excellent' programs... are not independent of the total system and will not achieve their promises in isolation
  3. Searching for examples (no theory)
    • Copying does not work - the parameters here are not the same as the respective parameters there
    • Choices should be based on knowledge and the current, local reality. Examples come from other times and places
  4. Obsolescence in senior staff development
  5. Poor or inappropriate use of statistics
  6. Use of predefined standards for acceptance
