David J. Sumanth (Dr Productivity™)

Dr. Sumanth’s, “People + Performance Philosophy of Management” (3PMä) evolved from his unique but practical Humanity Building-Up™ methodologies over 46 years of his research, teaching, industry experience, consulting, and travels in 100 countries --from a multi-disciplinary thinking cutting across industrial and systems engineering, management science, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and medical sciences. His interactions with Quality Gurus such as Dr. Edwards Deming, Dr. Noriaki Kano, Dr. Frank Gryna, Philip Crosby, and Dr. Imai; and Productivity Pioneers such as Dr. Marvin Mundel, Dr. Keith McGee, Dr. Krish Pennathur, and Dr. John Kendrick have added robustness to his theories.  Through his 3PM™, he has shown how to  increase employment levels, enlarge the economic pie, and enhance the human dignity. His teachings are applied by several thousands of CEOs and employees in Businesses, Governments; MBA and Industrial Engineering students; Administrators, Faculty; Church Leaders; and Families. His famous Total Productivity Model (STPMä) continues to be used worldwide to measure performance for guaranteed profitability and sustainability.
