Leadership Theory Wordpress Page This website contains creative ideas and writings from my undergraduate students from my classes who define their interpretation of what leadership is. Quality Digest.com Web Page This was my first article that I had ever created.  It was for Quality Digest magazine defining the quality concepts required for suppliers with QS-9000.  At that time, I was a Supplier Development Engineer. MY FIRST BOOK The reason I created this book is to help primarily undergraduate students learn what they need to do to prepare themselves for a career in today’s world. It is, however, applicable to anyone looking to change their career, obtain a new career position and to understand what it takes to get ahead in their job position.

MY CAREER HISTORY

My first encounter and passion with teamwork came when I was in the U. S. Marines.  It was there that I learned how important teamwork is, how important it is to count on others and them to count on you.  In the military and in combat, teamwork is essential - survival depends upon it.  From then on I always valued the power of teamwork and have kept that philosophy with me all thru my life.  My second term in the Marine Corps, I was a Radar Air Traffic Controller, and once again, working as a team was incredibly important not only for each of us to depend on each other, but the fact that other human lives relied upon us as well. I am very self critical and because I am a quality engineer, I strongly believe in two principles: 1. You are never perfect and should always be looking to continuously improve.  Nothing is perfect and while I never claim to be, I must try daily to be better than the day before. 2. Never assume you have solved anything.  Always look for the root cause and not the surface symptom. This web site has a dual purpose. The first is to provide a web site for production workers to learn how to use the 7 Basic Quality Tools on the production floor to improve their process and help eliminate defects. Most of the Quality Tools have to be administered on a computer and generally, with some specific computer software. With the methods that teaching here, all you need is paper and pencil; well, of course a computer and the Internet to access this site with. A printer helps so that you can print the blank forms I provide, however, it can be created even without downloading the forms.  The second purpose is to educate and inspire those into the field of Quality, Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma.
