The System Of Profound Knowledge® (SoPK) is the culmination of W. Edwards Deming’s work on management. The four areas of the system are: appreciation for a system, knowledge of variation, theory of knowledge and psychology.

This post explores the psychology in the context of Dr. Deming’s management philosophy. However, psychology is unified through its historical traditions and systems of thought.
