"If Japan Can (50-60 years ago) Why Can't We (Today)? "

The 1980 White Paper “If Japan Can Why Can’t We” is released through the Deming Institute. "If Japan Can Why Can't We ?"
It was the turning point where the Quality movement and transformation started and rose WE Deming’s name and work with Japan to prominence. (A bit like a YouTube video going viral these days)
Gives a very interesting account on the viewpoints and attitudes of large US corporations and their ‘acceptance of status quo’ within their own markets.
The Automotive Industry comments by President Jimmy Carter, 08:06m, I found particularly interesting.
The same general management views are likely also to, have been/be held here in Australia, or in other parts of the world, stifling innovation and progress.
