SIES higher secondary students were immensely benefitted as to how 5S, seven wastes and visual management help every youngster in the day to day life and education. Live examples including a number of Video presentations were made to make it livelier and certificates given.

I am heading Quality Department at Rolls Royce Bangalore. It is my passion to use Quality principles to best of my knowledge and ensure Company I work for gets all the benefits with 100% Customer Satisfaction.
During my journey I applaud American Society of Quality – ASQ which supported and focused my efforts towards achieving my goals which kept changing with time.
I am with ASQ since 2001. I am now a ‘Senior Member’ at ASQ. The best benefits that I used form ASQ are from their ‘Forums’. I take advantage form News letters that each of these Forums publishes which are valuable for most of my accomplishments. Bangalore has an LMC – Local Member Committee of ASQ which volunteers for sharing Quality Initiatives among their members through their LMC meetings. This is how it influenced me to become part of core-committee and give my little bit for the ‘Quality Community’ as a whole.
My association with ASQ since 1994 has been very rewarding! The structured and systematic approach to certifications was a great learning experience. I could also get opportunity to share my experience with others who wish to acquire knowledge get certified from ASQ. I would call this ‘spreading the message of quality’! It helped me professionally and also gave me some great opportunities to share my knowledge with the industry. Journals from ASQ have been helping me in keeping current and understand what approaches and tools are used by others to achieve quality improvement.
First of all, the spread and awareness of ASQ here in Canada is far far more than we have in India, all quality professionals obviously know ASQ, many others know it as well.
The course I am studying is specially designed for Quality Assurance and all my professors are at least an ASQ member and most of them are certified by at least one ASQ certification. The study culture is such that, all of our professors are serving some of well known industries in senior management position, like you all ASQ GC members.
I was in touch with ASQ Toronto Section and received a very warm response from them, in addition to that my professors also gave a very warm response just by hearing the name of ASQ. When they get to know I used to chair a student chapter in India and I gave a short presentation on activity we did in India, they were highly pleased and asked me to explore opportunities about starting a Student Chapter in college.
One more thing, though ASQ Toronto is having around 1400 ASQ Members including 600 active members participating in ASQ activities, I am selected as volunteer in Executive Board just because of my volunteering experience with ASQ.
ASQ has given me a great exposure. Being a part of the leadership team,I have been able to network with a few eminent people, teachers as well students of my college.
My association and experience with ASQ has been invaluable. . It has provided me with opportunities galore to interact with people of eminence and excellence of various fields
