April Section Meeting - Combating Normalization of Deviance

Despite best intentions, processes are subject to entropy. The tendency of processes to gradually drift from what is prescribed to something undesirable is the normalization of deviance—when actions that deviate from the expected become normal. Diane Vaughan initially used the term to describe the deterioration of decision and communication processes that led to the Challenger disaster. The question, of course, that will be considered in our section meeting is what can be done to identify and reverse these slips from the norm as quickly and effectively as possible.




Keith Johnson has been a member of the Salt Lake ASQ section for more than 30 years.  He values the many opportunities he has had to associate with and learn from other members of the section. As an industrial engineer, he has worked in electronic manufacturing and natural gas distribution, primarily in process, quality, and project management.  He is a licensed engineer, ASQ CQE and CMQOE, and certified as a Project Management Professional and PMI-Risk Management Professional.
