Now, let’s get started by meeting your instructors.
Clarifying the different roles and the expectations of each is a key factor for high level engagement.

Deming himself called it the "Shewhart Cycle," as his model was based on an idea from his mentor, Walter Shewhart.
Deming wanted to create a way of identifying what caused products to fail to meet customers' expectations.

In this section of the training, we will dive into each phase and share with you the purpose and main milestones of each.

That’s when the team brings the info to the Sponsor for a decision on next steps.
Those next steps might be to get a different baseline measure, change the scope of the project OR kill the project.
If the problem is validated, the team is ready to update the Project Charter with more details and they’re ready for the tollgate meeting with the sponsor.
Vision, spirit, trust, listening.
