Welcome Guest

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.

Over the past three decades, Qimpro Awards have evolved. Qimpro Foundation currently recognizes Quality Statesmen with the Qimpro Platinum Standard, and Quality Leaders with the Qimpro Gold Standard - in Business, Healthcare and  Education.

The winners are selected by four eminent Panels of Judges; each Chaired by the respective Qimpro Platinum Standard of the previous year.

In addition, Qimpro Foundation also recognizes Benchmark Leaders for Extraordinary Achievements, in a unique space, with the Qimpro Medal. The awardee, if any, is selected exclusively by the Trustees.
