Several years ago, John Sterman contacted my about the possibility of creating a system dynamics based case study on the deployment of Total Quality Management (TQM) at Analog Devices.
I readily agreed and worked closely with John and Nelson Repenning, serving as the "domain expert." The model incorporates my Half-life Method as well as the dynamics of organizational learning associated with TQM.
John and Nelson went on to receive a three-year NSF grant for similar studies at Lucent Technologies, Ford Motor Company, Harley-Davidson, and National Semiconductor.
