Message From The President

Colin Powell (US Secretary of State), in a speech as part of his Outreach to America program at the SEARS Corporate Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois last year stated that:

“Organization doesn’t really accomplish anything. Plans don’t accomplish anything, either. Theories of management don’t much matter. Endeavors succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds. In a brain-based economy, your best assets are people.”

W. Edwards Deming enunciated “The Deming System of Profound Knowledge” in this excerpt from Chapter 4 of “The New Economics”, second edition, as follows:

“The first step is transformation of the individual. This transformation is discontinuous. It comes from understanding of the system of profound knowledge. The individual, transformed, will perceive new meaning to his life, to events, to numbers, to interactions between people. Once the individual understands the system of profound knowledge, he will apply its principles in every kind of relationship with other people. He will have a basis for judgment of his own decisions and for transformation of the organizations that he belongs to. The individual, once transformed, will:

Set an example

Be a good listener, but will not compromise

Continually teach other people

Help people to pull away from their current practice and beliefs and move into the new philosophy without a feeling of guilt about the past.”

What we are concerned about at the American Certification Institute is finding ways to increase both individual and organizational competency and credibility. I firmly believe that individual employee professional and business competency builds individual credibility and reputation, and further that this individual employee credibility and reputation can contribute significantly to organizational credibility and quality. In short, quality employees make a quality organization!!!
