W. Edwards Deming's Theory of Profound Knowledge is the foundation of quality improvement. This theory has four parts: appreciation of a system, knowledge of variation, theory of knowledge, and knowledge of psychology. This video uses the example of a mousetrap to review systems.
Dr. Edwards Deming argued that, in order to improve a process, you need to understand it from four perspectives: aspects of the system, variation in the system, the theories that people hold and human behavior. Robert Lloyd, PhD, explains this in Part 1 of 2 and helps us better understand how to carry out improvement within a complex system.

Title: "Your Personal Quality Trainer - Deming’s theory of profound knowledge applied to self development" When Dr. W. Edwards Deming articulated his “System of Profound Knowledge,” he intended it to be a framework of thought and action for leaders.
