Deming understood that the inherent dignity of human nature is honored when it is possible for people to make a contribution of intrinsic value to the common good. What Deming calls "pride in workmanship"…

Thomas Piketty and the money illusion

In his book “Capital in the Twenty-First Century”, the French economist Thomas Piketty gives a stunning demonstration of how capital has become concentrated in the hands of a few and grown faster than the economy, except during the 30 years of post-war growth. This trend has inevitably made the rich even richer and caused the inequality gap to widen. Labour has thus become a casualty of capital. Piketty is fascinating. I had the occasion to be a modest participant at his side in a…

ERM: 4 Predictions for 2015

The year 2014 has come and nearly gone, and it’s clear that enterprise risk management will not go quietly into the night. Following a 2013 that saw Edward Snowden NSA leaks, a Carnival Cruise line generator fire, and Target’s credit card heist (to name only a signature few), this year has proven to be no slouch: FINRA has disciplined thousands of companies with …

How The Full-Grown Quality Company Delivers Superior Performance And Customer Bonding: Second Part

How The Full-Grown Quality Company Delivers Superior Performance And Customer Bonding

In the full-grown organization executives have a systems view of their organization. They see interrelationships, not things. They manage things and lead people. Change is a mosaic of processes, methods, materials, equipment, work environment and people. The shifting, understood patterns of change are controlled using statistical theory and other quality tools. Controlled not because someone in upper management is atop all the processes and information, but because:

The Delta Model: Who is the Customer

Who Is the Customer?

This is a very central question. The most obvious answer is that the customer is the one who pays. The relevance of this answer is evident, since it identifies who is directly responsible for generating our economic benefits. Therefore, we have to include the buyer as a critical element of our customer base. However, often we shouldn’t stop there, because the customers of our…

Wealth Management and Newspapers - an unlikely pairing?

Wealth management is increasingly seen as a profitable new arena for non-wealth firms. While technology companies are the obvious candidates to branch into the wealth management space, media companies that are known for their print journalism are showing signs of taking the lead. Will print journalism, seen by many as a rapidly declining industry, sustain the move into wealth and gain the status of a regulated advisor?

Both technology and print journalism have loyal customer bases and…

The unstoppable drive to streamline operations for compliance

Risk management has been transformed beyond recognition in the past few years. The regulatory wave unleashed by the 2008 financial crisis has created a need for a new layer of operations for implementations of these legal requirements. Most banks are already improving their operations by throwing teams at the ‘deep end’ of run-the-bank and change-the-bank functions. I believe they should be diving deeper.

The increased consumption of budgets for regulatory projects demonstrates that…
