What is this course all about?

Transform Your Business with Dr. Deming’s 14 Points is an online, video-based training program that teaches managers how to create lasting competitive advantage by deepening their understanding of quality.

This course will help you take your thinking about quality to a higher level whether you are a CEO who is frustrated with the performance of your management team, an aspiring manager who is looking for new ways of thinking about quality and customer care, or you are a quality expert who has seen that just having a box full of quality tools is not enough.


How does this course work?

The Transform Your Business with Dr. Deming’s 14 Points course consists of three modules and takes about 4 hours to complete. Each module contains video lessons that will walk you through what you need to know to understand Dr. Deming’s teaching.

We teach in short blocks of content. Each lesson starts with a learning outcome statement and ends with a summary of what you have learned to help you better retain the material. In this course, your knowledge will build progressively, so you must finish each lesson before moving on to the next. Each chapter is capped off with a short 3-5 question multiple-choice quiz to assure you are ready for the next lesson.

When you sign up for the course, you will receive a course checklist that will guide you to success. You will also receive other handouts that are quick reference guides to help you bring the principles into your life. Additionally, some lessons will have videos of Dr. Deming speaking on topics related to the lesson.

When you finish all the modules, you will get access to the Facebook membership group, which will allow you to contact me at any time. I do weekly Q&A Facebook Live sessions and encourage all my students to reach out with any questions. You get lifetime access to all the course materials so you can always go back and review prior lessons. Also, with your lifetime membership allows you to have access to any newly added material.


Is this course right for me?

If you want to learn revolutionary thinking about management, then this course is for you. If you have been frustrated trying to get more out of your workforce, then this course is for you. If you have ever questioned whether Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and other traditional management techniques are really the best way to get the most from people, then this course is for you. Finally, this course is for you if you want to bring your thinking about management, people, and quality to a higher level. Our typical students fall into one of these categories:

Instructor

Andrew Stotz, Ph.D., CFA

CEO, A. Stotz Investment Research

In 1992 I left a promising management career at Pepsi-Cola in California to teach finance in Thailand, and I have not stopped teaching since. In 1993, I found my life calling as a financial analyst. Over my 20-year career at brokerages and investment banks, my proudest moment was when my clients voted me #1 analyst in Thailand in the Asiamoney Brokers Polls and Institutional Investor magazine.

I now run my own company, A. Stotz Investment Research, where we provide research and research tools for institutions and high-net-worth investors; as well, we have a consulting arm that helps CEOs and management teams make their companies financially world-class.

The ValuationMasterClass.com comes from my near three decades of teaching and working in finance. I am also the host of the My Worst Investment Ever podcast, author of four books, and creator of four online courses.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in finance, an MBA from California State University, and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Science and Technology of China. I live in Bangkok with my 81-year-old mother, who will attest that I remain an analyst at heart!

Testimonial

Based on real-life application"

"Andrew has an influential style. His teachings are based on the real-life application from his own business with an emphasis on 'What works best' for each business. Not a one-size-fits-all approach. We can always learn new approaches to business or improve beyond where we currently are no matter how good we think our business is. It is when we stop being open to new perspectives and ideas that we stop growing.”

Daniel Remon - Business Owner

Learn how to raise the bar for your company"

"It’s engaging yet challenging. He asks you to think and consider the ideas as they can be applied to yourself. His delivery is clear and concise. I would definitely recommend the learnings because it makes you think outside the box, take a look at management from all levels and learn how to raise the bar for your company as a whole.”

Lucy Thorpe - Senior Executive

Different approach to management"

"Andrew helped me to see a different approach to business and management. His discussion of Dr. Deming’s 14 Points is great for anyone in business, entrepreneurs, managers, or anyone open to outside-the-box thinking.”

Jerry Gonzales - Senior Vice-President

Frequently asked questions

Get all your questions answered!

  • What is the refund policy? Can I cancel at any time?

    Some people ask us why we make it so easy for our students to get a refund. The answer is that it motivates us to make our material cutting edge and to make sure that we deliver more than what you expected. We have a 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee. We don’t want your money if you’re not satisfied. Once in the course, you can request your refund at any time within 30 days. I know what you are thinking, “Could I sign up, download all the content, and then ask for a refund?” The answer is, “Yes.” But despite that, we get almost no refund requests because our students feel the value they get (plus, they don’t want to lose access to the Facebook group, where all the magic happens!).

  • Will I earn a certificate of completion?

    You will earn a certificate of completion at the end of the course. You will also get instructions on how you can add a certificate of completion on your LinkedIn page. And if you wish, you can also apply to get a personal recommendation on your LinkedIn directly from your teacher, Dr. Andrew Stotz.

  • Can I email the instructor if I have questions?
