In 1987, the Quality Guru, Dr J M Juran assessed the opportunities for Quality Improvement in India. This was pre-liberalization. He concluded that Quality was not on the agenda for most Indian organizations. For a nation to evolve, where Quality Improvement is a Way of Life, Dr Juran believed that, apart from Business, India will need to focus on Quality in Healthcare and Quality in Education.

This was the mandate given to Qimpro®, by Dr Juran.

In the initial years, Qimpro® focused on Quality Improvement in Manufacturing. Quality assignments delivered attractive Financial Results.

As a strategy, in 1989, Dr Juran recommended that Qimpro® recognize the leaders who made this happen. With that was born the Qimpro® Gold Standard in 1990. It served to recognize our clients.

Service organizations started adopting Quality Improvement, post-liberalization. The population of organizations adopting Quality Improvement grew at an exponential rate. There were statesmen advocating Quality Improvement for nation-building. Dr Juran now recommended we recognize these statesmen as Qimpro® Platinum Standards.

Qimpro® Awards were well established by 1997. As a result, the Qimpro® agenda became more ambitious. In consultation with well-wishers such as Dr K K Nohria, Ms Tarjani Vakil, and Mr R V Ramachandran, the “idea” of Qimpro® Foundation was seeded. It was finally established in 1999. Since inception, we have had reputed trustees mentoring the Foundation. Each of them has supported the discipline of Quality Improvement since 1987.
