Quality Improvement in Collaboration

Just in Time


Just-in-Time (JIT) training is a term used to describe knowledge made available just when it’s needed. It is an autonomous educational system that shortens the time between learning and application. By automating the JIT Modules, groups of learners in multiple areas can gather information during team meetings, while completing assignments, or when just wanting to learn about quality improvement.

TIPQC has formally adopted the philosophy and values of Dr. W. Edwards Deming (1900-1993), a great thought leader in quality improvement.  His 14 Points were a bedrock philosophy for management, which he late simplified into the Four Cornerstones of Profound Knowledge (1987-88).  Shortly before he died, he simplified his philosophy yet further–he said, it is all about “the human spirit.”
