The contribution of quality guru - Dr William Edwards Deming is worthy of supporting the 21st century processes to unprecedented heights, but only if these are understood and applied properly. This work attempts a treatise on individual and organisational transformation, applying the principles of Demingism.
But Transformation can’t be done to singular people. Further it may occur between individuals and within an individual, which makes it complex. It thus requires that it can be understood and monitored by only using a higher level thinking. We need to use the principles of Convergent Integration to enable us to get prepared to take Deming's ideas to the next level, a level he already intuited but did not have time to elaborate.
For enabling the use of Enneagram is suggested. Being a powerful tool for personal and collective transformation, the system of Holistic understanding of yourself, and organisations is an imperative.
