Course author and lead tutor: Mike Debenham
Approved course tutor: David Hutchins experience and approach is founded on his experiences as Production Engineer, Industrial Engineer and Works Manager in the highly competitive field of high volume high precision components for the automotive industry.
Through his intense study of Japanese management systems from the late 1960s onwards, and his friendship with the late Professor Ishikawa (David was invited to write a chapter in the book commemorated to his life and Professor Ishikawa’s only ever visit to Europe was at David’s invitation) He is acknowledged to have pioneered the introduction of several Quality Related concepts into the UK. These include TQM (1972!) Quality Circles (or Kaizen as it is known to some), Just in Time (including all things now called ‘Lean’), Benchmarking (acknowledged in an early DTI publication on the subject), Hoshin Kanri, Root Cause Analysis and Project by Project Improvement. He has been involved with Six Sigma training from its origination at Motorola in the late 1980s.
He likes to work in association with other professionals around the world as a means of cross fertilizing new ideas and to continue the development of the Quality sciences and disciplines.
