Brief History

ASQ's South Asia Team Excellence Award (SATEA) is an annual award and recognition program that provides teams an opportunity to assess their performance against an excellence framework. The SATEA Criteria provide a framework to help teams and organizations measure and compare their team improvement and innovation efforts.

SATEA was established eight years back in line with ASQ International Team Excellence Award (ITEA) held in the US for the past 30 years. In the past cycles, held at New Delhi, the SATEA saw some of the best companies from South Asia, participate in this prestigious award process.

The SATEA Purpose

The purpose of the SATEA framework is to help organizations benchmark and improve the results of their projects regardless of organizational size, industry type, or project type. The Criteria provides a universal framework for both improvement projects or innovation initiatives using any kind of quality or innovation tools and methodologies to achieve organisation goals.

The opportunity to be recognized at a gold, silver or bronze level is a participation bonus for organizations who choose to seek the prestigious team recognition. The SATEA final round, where the awards are presented, allows professionals the opportunity to learn how high-performance teams use various tools, techniques and innovative methodologies to find solutions to industry problems or provide customer delight.
