Quality Tools

Beginning in the 1980’s, David Langford has worked to improve learning through the creation of concepts such as Quality Learning and Profound Learning.  He has published Tool Time for Education, Tool Time for Business and Tool Time for Healthcare.  He is also co-author of Orchestrating Learning with Quality,  24 Elements of the Learning Code and Tool Time for Lean.  David created 10 unique quality tools: Capacity Matrices, Code of Cooperation, Consensogram, If…Then, Integrative Learning Analysis, Morphing, Parking Lot, P3T and Systems Progress.   He has made innovative adaptations and applications of the following quality tools: Bone Diagram, Lotus Diagram, Loss Function, 5 Whys? Operational Definitions, Multi-Voting, and Problem Statement.

Mr. Langford pioneered the self-managed classroom, student ownership of learning, intrinsic motivation, technology innovation, portfolio formative assessment and created Student TEAMS which is an innovative program for youth to impact businesses and other organizations in their communities.  He has designed new curriculum implementation methods combined with research in neuroscience, pedagogy, quality management, psychology and systems thinking to create a transformation of learning called Quality Learning.

SPM Teaching team and staff have worked directly with Mr. Langford on several occasions and implement Quality Tools to improve learning for every student. SPM uses an advanced set of thinking and management tools in classroom education. In 2010 and 2011 we had the pleasure to have David Langford host 6 days of training. From that moment forward we have been implementing the tools and harnessing our students potential even more.
