Deming's 14 points

Research and discuss Deming's 14 points, then create an ideal process map with minimal waste. Describe how the new process will meet each of Deming's 14 points. Submit one document that contains the streamlined process map, and a second document that explains how the new process will address each of Deming's 14 points. Within your group, divide Deming's points to summarize the findings and submit those documents. The final document should include an optimal process map and an explanation of how your team has optimized the process and managerial and employee goals and communication processes to reach each of Deming's Points in the future.
