Reading their blog at is a good start.
I'm not so sure. I think that blog is written with the intent of generating consulting customers as opposed to informing about Juran's ideas. I mean, the six sigma stuff is pretty well-known, so it's not much use to read 300-odd pages on it. I'm more hoping that someone, somewhere, has written a survey/synthesis on his work so I can determine if he had more than one 'big idea'. For example, this ( synthesizes Michael Porter very well.
