Bangalore to host Quality Summit

Our Bureau

Bangalore , Nov. 6

THE 13th Quality Summit, organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry Quality Institute, is scheduled to begin here on November 10.

With the focus of the global corporations turning on China and India as the low-cost hubs for outsourcing, the narrowing down of the competition has highlighted the imperativeness for achieving excellence in the value chain of industrial processes and systems.

"India needs breakthrough management to improveits competitiveness globally", said Mr S.K. Kakkar, Principal Counsellor & Head, CII Institute of Quality.

The breakthrough management itself is being promoted as a concept at the summit where international experts would dwell on the subject.

Mr Kakkar said the theme `Building Global Competitiveness for Inclusive and Sustained Growth' underscores the essence of the role played by the institute through its continuing training programmes held in different parts of the country.

Though the summit serves as an important quality check exercise through exchange of views and presentations by experts from international arena and domestic companies, the training programmes and workshops conducted by the Quality Institute have been playing facilitative roles to enhance the growth and competitiveness of the industry.

"The goal has been to make the industry competitive and ready itself for increasing its growth in the international market," Mr Kakkar said.

He said earlier the focus used to be only on efficiencies and operational aspects of the industry.

The institute has now broad-based its attention to wider aspects, infrastructure and even education to highlight the need for positioning through best practices in management to achieve quality.

The institute conducts programmes in business excellence, quality & competitiveness, quality management systems and world-class management regularly in different parts of the country.

It strives to incorporate contemporary issues to prepare the beneficiaries of the training programmes to meet the challenges and threats posed by intense competition, Mr Kakkar said.
