Quality the Foundation of Organizational Success Edward Deming a statistician transformed the business world with the introduction of statistical process control. The basis of Deming’s philosophy was an organizations relentless commitment to exceptional quality and the sustained aspiration to achieve zero defects.

Spurned by the auto manufacturing community in America Deming took his knowledge and talent to Japan and...

Veterans between 20-35 have a higher unemployment rate than non-veterans. This will be a positive news for our veterans who are living in NY. The new state law gives businesses up to $5,000 in tax credits when hiring a veteran full-time. The amount goes up to $15,000 if that veteran is disabled. A different bill creates funds to help homeless veterans find housing. New Yorkers can contribute when filling out income taxes.   http://www.mychamplainvalley.com/story/d/story/hire-a-vet-tax-credit-among-ny-laws-going-into-eff/70462/IOp4QIcom0CSiEFNykgpQQ     Roshan Chandrasekara http://hirepatriots.com/FortBragg  ...
