In March, Joseph Juran passed away at 103 years of age. Some of his accomplishments:
- Helped establish the field of quality management, which lead to the development of Six Sigma and lean manufacturing.
- Created the 80-20 rule, otherwise known as the Pereto principle.
But what struck me most was the power of his longevity:
- His marriage lasted 81 years.
- At age 75, he established the Juran Institute. At an age when many are retired, he still had over a quarter century of work to do.
