Quality Month is celebrated each year in November with some basic quality focussed activities and events to initiate or further encourage the implementation of quality practices around the world. It is a public awareness campaign that encourages business, industry, government, and academia to focus on the strategic importance of quality and continuous improvement. The celebration provides a platform for acknowledging the accomplishments of people and organizations, making advancements and valuable quality contributions in businesses, communities and institutions worldwide.
Quality Month calls on quality enthusiasts to share their knowledge by submitting their success stories to illustrate the value of quality principles.
The theme selected by QCI for the Quality Month this year is ”Digital way to Quality life”.
The digital age is upon us and today everything can be done online, be it accessing information, shopping, making payments or chatting with your friends. Digital is the now and it is the future and if you are not keeping up, you will be left far behind. The digital technology helps people in several ways, from faster and easier delivery of service to establishing a global networking opportunity.
The rapid changes in this technology have made the world a global village where one person sitting in the corner of the world can share his work with and the person at the opposite end of the world. The digital technology has expanded the horizons and there is a lot to gain from this invention.
Digital technology has now become an essential part of human life. It is said that more people in the world have access to a smart phone than they do to running water. Digitization fuels global healthcare services and research facilities, powers utility in infrastructure, supports education system and transforms the way manufacturing is done. It is revolutionizing the way we run our business and it is important to have discussions on how to improve digital life for everyone.
November, being the Quality month, we at QCI celebrate it with a theme that is contemporary and important for business. This year our theme is “Digital way to Quality life”. Like our previous years, we will be arranging events ranging from talks, poster, essay, photo competitions etc. All details are available on our website. We look forward to enthusiastic celebration of the Quality month by our colleagues in the quality field. Also, we would be happy to publicize some of your events in our Quality India magazine.
