The Deming Center, located within Columbia Business School, was founded in 1990 during W. Edwards Deming's last year at Columbia. The center focuses on developing thought leadership in three major initiatives: Revenue Optimization, Advanced Commerce Research, and Six Sigma. The center organizes major conferences and seminars in an effort to bridge the gap between industry and academia. It also sponsors the Deming Cup, an award that recognizes individuals for operations excellence.
