ASQ Silicon Valley Section 0613 said:
The SV ASQ extends our sympathy to the family, friends and the quality community on the death of Dr. Joseph M. Juran on February 28, 2008. His legacy was to the world, not only to the quality community.

Dr. Juran was referred to as the father of modern day Quality Management. He had many accomplishments in his life. He named the Pareto Principle; he provided a roadmap to improve organization-wide quality; he traveled the world to teach others how to improve quality; and he founded the Juran Institute Inc (JII) in 1979 at the age of 75. JII initially focused on providing training to improve enterprise quality. It grew over the years to provide clients and society with a full compliment of tools and techniques to improve business results. Many of Dr. Juran's techniques to improve business performance are still in use today in as the Lean and Six Sigma, tools and principles used all around the world.

Marc,
Thanks for posting. When I heard this news this morning, it was very sad.
Now ASQ also has officially posted the news in their site: http://www.asq.org/juran/
Dr.Juran’s contribution to Quality will always be remembered. It is unfortunate that I never got an opportunity to meet him in person or hear his speech.

Any other COVERS who was fortunate to sit in Dr.Juran’s seminar or speeches or meet in person? Love to hear your thoughts.
Regards,
Govind.

I was introduced to Dr. Juran in the 80s. He was featured in a video series that we used as part of a "Quality at Work" program.

I remember him mostly for "Vital few and trivial many" (hence my signature) and his Quality Handbook (the bible for every quality professional).

Sad that he has passed away. He should be an example to all of us.

I guess everyone here at the Cove has been influenced one way or the other by Juran. As I open up my cabinet at work, I see Juran's picture on the Juran Quality Handbook every day. The picture is so respectable... and a bit intimidating..:) It's like he's telling me in his own way to "Get back to work, stop wasting time and resources... and by all means, do a good job!":lol:

I think it is a testimony to his life's work, the progressive knowledge he put forth, and his usefulness that his handbook is in probably every facility in America, if not the world. The same can be said of Deming.

It is left to the future gurus of quality, however, to actually get the facilities to open the books and apply it to their lives.

Another light has gone out. But thankfully, many people have heeded these masters and profited from their advice, so their work was done well.

RIP, Dr. Juran. Take a break. You done good.
