ABOUT

Recognized as the country's premier quality citations, Qimpro Awards were conceptualized in 1989 by Dr J M Juran - the Quality Guru who catalyzed the quality revolution in Japan post World War II.

Dr Juran believed that for a quality revolution in India, we need to recognize individual excellence in quality management. He also believed that a national quality culture can be seeded by focusing on Quality in Healthcare and Quality in Education.

Qimpro Awards commenced by recognizing leaders and facilitators in business with the Qimpro Gold Standard and Qimpro Silver Standard. We now focus on Qimpro Platinum Standard for Statesmanship and Qimpro Gold Standard for Leadership in four categories – Business, Education, Healthcare, Environment.

The winners are selected by four eminent panels of judges; each chaired by the respective Qimpro Platinum Standard of the previous year.
