Dr. Deming on Variation
Introducing common cause vs special cause variation from Dr. Deming's book "A New Economics".
The first episode of a few episodes discussing Dr. Deming's works.
Adam recaps a principle of Dr. Deming's "System of Profound Knowledge": understanding variation. There are two types of variation: common and special causes. Misunderstanding the type of variation leads to wasted effort and lost resources. Understanding variation helps optimize system performance.
