文學季刊五十週年回顧研討會,聽尉天驄老師細說從頭。






說故事的人
到政治大學參加「文季五十週年研討會」,帶自己的新書去送給高中同學和老曹,老同學提了兩袋蓮霧來,一袋給老曹,一袋給我,我則送書給他,以物易物。他拿起來翻了翻:這麼厚?還有沒有別人寫的?我說過,出書是考驗友情的開始。
我下午才到會場,老曹已待了一天,旁邊坐的是高瑞穗老師。我一開始沒注意,只顧和老曹說話,拿書給老曹,他又掏出1000元給我……。我高中的時候,從來也沒想過會賣自己的書給老師。

【春明的話】
《文學季刊》我發表作品的第一個舞台,〈兒子的大玩偶〉、〈看海的日子〉都是在文季上刊登的。
大家都說文季不給稿費,誰說沒有?這件棉襖是尉天驄給我的,就是我的稿費。
這件棉襖別具意義,我在十月還沒入冬時拿到這件衣服,那時還很熱,但我穿著它在大街小巷走來走去。
它也成為當時我們一家三口的棉被。

Deming Cup 2016

November 21, 2016 15:37 ET

Columbia Business School's Deming Center Bestows Awards to Paul O'Neill, David Cote, and Indra Nooyi

Former US Secretary of the Treasury Paul O'Neill Receives Inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award, Honeywell and PepsiCo CEOs Receive Deming Cup for Operational Excellence
NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - November 21, 2016) - Columbia Business School's W. Edwards Deming Center for Quality, Productivity, and Competitiveness recently honored David M. Cote, chairman and CEO at Honeywell, and Indra K. Nooyi, chairman and CEO at PepsiCo, with the 2016 Deming Cup for Operational Excellence. In addition, the center bestowed the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award to Paul H. O'Neill, 72nd Secretary of the US Treasury and former director and chairman at Alcoa, for his legacy of leadership across the public and private sectors over five decades.
Presented annually since 2010, the Deming Cup recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions in the area of operations and have fostered a culture of continuous improvement within their organizations.
David Cote was recognized for successfully deploying a business model for Honeywell focusing on three pillars: portfolio, process, and culture. Under his leadership, Honeywell has grown to have an impressive portfolio, solid positions in different industries, differentiated technologies, and a constant process focus, combined with a unified, performance-driven culture. "This honor celebrates Honeywell's commitment to operational excellence that has helped to propel our growth and has made our company a place where customers want to do business, employees want to work, and investors want to invest," said Cote.
Indra Nooyi was honored for demonstrating success in creating a consistently high level of returns to investors while following her guiding principles of "Performance with Purpose," making PepsiCo a high-performing global enterprise. "Our work at PepsiCo is driven by a sense of responsibility towards our stakeholders and our planet," said Nooyi. "I am truly honored to accept this award on behalf of all my colleagues at PepsiCo, whose dedication and commitment to continuous improvement inspire me each day."
Paul O'Neill's leadership has embodied the essence of Deming's principles, proving time and again that business success can be driven by a values-based, employee-oriented culture. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognized O'Neill's significant achievements as a leader, saluting the unflinching integrity and data-driven approach that guided the practice of his leadership. "This is something embedded in the Deming Principles -- organizations are either habitually excellent or they are not. I'm not done yet . . . I'm still out there pushing every day to get people to adopt what I know -- ideas that in so many ways can liberate the people in our society," said O'Neill.
The Deming Cup for Operational Excellence and Lifetime Achievement Award represent Columbia Business School's drive to honor practitioners who promote excellence in operations and create lasting impact through the practice of their leadership. Nelson M. Fraiman, director of the W. Edwards Deming Center for Quality, Productivity, and Competitiveness and professor of professional practice in the Decision, Risk, and Operations Division, commented on the importance of the awards. "By honoring outstanding leaders for their achievements and legacy, we have created a group of exemplary leaders who can inspire Columbia Business School's students -- the next generation of business practitioners -- to embrace excellence in leadership as a core guiding principle of their practice."

Favorite book: Out of the Crisis (originally published in 1982) by W. Edwards Deming. Boston Beer Co.'s Jim Koch

Care to take a guess what book is at the top of Jim Koch's list of books that helped him build his billion-dollar craft beer company? Yep....Dr. Deming's "Out of the Crisis"!


 Favorite book: Out of the Crisis (originally published in 1982) by W. Edwards Deming. He's known for bringing quality control into modern manufacturing and the book speaks to that, but in a more general sense. It focuses on how you treat people. One of the main points is driving out fear. As a former mountain climber, that resonated. Until you drive out fear, your mind can't focus on making clear, good decisions.

《酒神》(Bacchae) :「不要誤以為你的機智就是智慧。」「對愚人而言,智慧有如痴言妄語。」

Deming 博士(1900-1993)是老式的學者,他的著作,不管是統計學的或管理學的書,在各章章前都有"題辭"(epigraphs)。這些,給讀者復習或深思的題材。不過,這對喜好追根究柢的人兩大挑戰:
一. 讀者確切知道該章"題辭"(epigraph)所對應的章旨嗎?
二. "題辭"(epigraph) 的上下文是什麼呢?
多年前,我要找下述"題辭",卻找不到;Euripides著《戴神的女信徒》(The Bacchae),胡耀恆,胡宗文譯---根據希臘文文翻譯,而Deming 博士則根據英譯本,不過我沒去查英譯本的出處:
2008/8/14 日與彭老師談 智慧 vs 機智 等。
Deming博士的"題辭"引文,無法在這版本找到。無法知道版本差異。
附錄:日本的轉型
「不要誤以為你的機智就是智慧。」──古希臘作家Euripedes作品《酒神》(Bacchae)中,Tiresius向Dionysus說。
「對愚人而言,智慧有如痴言妄語。」──同上作品,Dionysus向Cadmus說。
