About Me

My name is Harish. I am a lifelong learner and I enjoy learning. I also enjoy meditating on what I have learned.

This blog is a means for me to write down my thoughts. I have a wide variety of interests and sometimes this is also reflected in what I write. I try to bring a unique and different perspective with each post. I generally end my posts with a short story related to the topic. I am a firm believer that humans are story tellers and we learn better through stories.

I have over 10 years experience as a Process & Quality Engineer, and am a Quality Manager in the medical devices field.  I am a graduate of the University of Missouri- Rolla (USA) where I obtained a Master’s degree in Manufacturing Engineering and published two articles. I am also an ASQ member with multiple ASQ certifications including Quality Engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt and Reliability Engineer.  I can be reached at harishjose@gmail.com. My LinkedIn profile is available at https://www.linkedin.com/in/harishjose.

I do not believe in belonging to one sect of thinking – lean, six sigma, TOC, etc. I believe that all schools of thoughts have something to offer, and one should learn from all.

Why am I writing this blog? I have noted some of the reasons below;

  • Sheer egoism – George Orwell noted this as one of the reasons why he wrote.
  • To express my thoughts and thus, allowing me to meditate on the concept even further.
  • To help people. I will be extremely happy if my posts made you think and you were able to learn from it.
  • To make a difference (somewhat related to Reason #1)
  • To write a book. Someday I hope to garner enough courage to write a book. This blog allows me to test the water, establish myself and sharpen my skills.

My posts are strictly my views and opinions, and do not reflect that of my employer’s. I will not be writing about my current profession.

I would very much welcome your feedback and comments.

Thanks again,

  1. Hi Harish,
    I just discovered your blog and spent 2 hours reading your stories. I liked so much your way and your idea to share knowledge. I believe in “Sharing Knowledge”! Congratulations!!!


  2. Hey Harish… Bullseye..on achieving the masterstroke of intertwining education and entertainment through your unique writing style… which combines technical concepts and a story telling format. Keep up the good work and let those stories roll..


  3. Harish,
    I’ve just discovered your blog today after doing some research on Ji-Kotei-Kanketsu so that I can teach it to my current company. I am a continuous improvement engineer and very much look forward to reading more of the things you’ve learned.
    Thank you for the resource!


  4. Hi Harish! Really enjoyed what you have written in this blog. Every post felt like I was in the middle of a short guest lecturer presentation in uni. I have only recently started learning (self-learner, right here) about system thinking. Your blog opens my mind to a whole lot of ways to think thoughtfully (if that makes sense?), so thank you for that. I’m so excited to see what I will learn from your blog.

    P.s.: You definitely have accomplished the third bullet point.


  5. Hello Harish, first of all, thank you for making this article available to us, very helpful! If I could ask one question, the formula used to calculate the Probability of rejects being identified by at least one inspector 1-(1-e)^n, is there any available information/source on the rationale (Probability/Statistics) showing the validity of this formula for assessing the effectiveness of “multiple 100% visual inspection”? The formula reminds me of the formula for cumulative distribution function for a geometric random variable, however, I have no idea whether that is the case. Once more, any information would be welcomed. Kind Regards, Omar.
