QualTech® Prize



Our recent interaction with several HR professionals in corporate India has indicated that fresh graduates and first-time managers claim to have Problem-Solving as a key skill in their CVs. However, when it comes to proactively unearthing and defining chronic problems, they fall short of expectations. Further, the claimed Problem-Solving skill usually lacks a structured methodology, as well as proficiency with quality tools.


Consequently, based on over three decades of experience in quality and innovation, Qimpro® designed QualTech® Prize - Education (QT-Edu) to address this cry for help from corporate India.
