I have spent most of my professional life working in the areas of management improvement and internet technology.
In 2000, I founded curiouscat.com ltd. and continue to work on curiouscat.com web sites and designing and improving web sites and web applications for clients.
I participated in the Deming Electronic Network since helping found it in 1994 until it closed in 2007 and was a founding member of the Washington Deming Study Group, where I served on the board for several years.
I have been involved in improving the management of government. Previously, I served on the board of the Public Sector Network (now the Government Division of American Society for Quality) for several years (and established their online presence).
I established the Public Sector Continuous Improvement Site, in 1995. The site aims to help Public Sector employees improve their organizations. We focus on the following methods of improvement: the System of Profound Knowledge (W. Edwards Deming), System Thinking, Statistical Process Control, Customer Focus, Joy in Work, Learning Organizations and Innovation.
I have spoken at various conferences including the National Quality Education Conference, the W. Edwards Deming Institute Conference and the ASQ Quality Management Division conference (topic: Using Quality to Develop an Internet Resource). And I have presented to the Deming Scholars MBA program at Fordham University. I have also served on the planning committees for FedWeb and Government Services online conferences.
My resumes provides more details on my work experiences.
My professional life builds on some of the work of my father (Bill Hunter): I created a web site to share his work: Life and Legacy of William G. Hunter. The site includes Information on his life, his work and his legacy: the Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement, the Madison Area Quality Improvement Network's annual Hunter Conference on Quality (no longer held), the ASQ Statistics Division's Hunter Award and more.
Peter Scholtes and my father worked on what I believe to be the first application of Quality Management principles in the Public Sector: working with the First Street Garage in Madison, Wisconsin. I manage Peter's web site: Scholtes Seminars and Consulting. Peter dedicated the Team Handbook to Bill Hunter. He also wrote the Leader's Handbook
John Hunter has experience in management improvement (customer focused continuous improvement, process improvement, systems thinking) and related areas. Since 1995, I have used the internet and internet technology to improve the results of management improvement efforts.
