Quality is imperative in all spheres of life

We read in many self-help books these days that “The quality of our thinking determines the quality of our life” meaning if we feed our mind with positive thoughts or what we call as quality thoughts than we can be more positive in our outlook towards life both personally, professionally and if our thoughts are gloomy then we ought to become more pessimistic.


Similarly, all of us are also aware that keeping quality friends is better than the number of friends.

The way we invest our money in the insurance sector to get a life or health cover, in the same way, we know that without giving quality time, our relationships will not survive. Hence, quality is a type of investment for the future.

A Few years back, in BPO’s (business process outsourcing), the agents who used to answer the maximum number of calls were considered top performers irrespective of the quality of their calls.

This was the time when selling more units was given more preference over the quality of products being sold and words like post sales feedback, after sales query was something unheard.

People in 20th  century are becoming more aware of their rights whether fundamental or consumer and with this increased awareness, the competition in the market has increased manifold

Earlier we were not so health conscious which we are in today’s time. Years back, none of us had thought of hitting the gym, attending Zumba classes or religiously going for a walk on a daily basis and making it a part of our routine.

Now we understand the importance of high grade goods in terms of food we eat or the products we purchase.

Due to changes in our outlook and the way we as human beings question, negotiate or bargain over commodities and services, has given birth to what we call as Quality parameters.

As customers we buy products by analysing and questioning their credibility.

We as buyers take into consideration many things while making purchases but I personally feel that there are 2 main things: –

  • Checking reviews of the product
  • Word of mouth is developed depending upon the performance of the product. Hence, the quality of the commodity becomes a key factor.

That is why TV these days is flooded with so many advertisements which highlight the USP (unique selling proposition) of the products and services and persuade its target audience to take appropriate action.

All this has resulted in companies becoming more conscious of improving their brand quality and image. Ensuring Quality and making it their first and utmost priority.

For instance, in food, authorities like FSSAI (Food safety and standards authority of India), has played an important role in controlling food quality and has ensured safety at the same time for its consumers.

Also, there is PFA (Prevention of Food adulteration) act 1954 introduced by Government of India to prevent adulteration in food.

Quality, in a lay man language, means, how excellent is your good and services. An example for the same is any well-made product which is unbreakable and is in working condition for many years, act as an asset for its consumer and the company can encash on it for many years to come.

High grade products contribute in long term profits and is critical in converting a new customer to a potential one by meeting their expectations and satisfying their needs.

Benefits of total quality management

  • Removing defects and waste
  • Market image being enhanced
  • Cost well managed and reduced
  • Adapting oneself to changing or burgeoning market scenario
  • Competitive position gets strengthened

If we talk about current scenario merely every company with a small or big setup invests in Quality assurance department as every entrepreneur after extensively studying the market believe that “when you are out of Quality, you are out of business” as it is the need of hour.

We should not forget this simple fact that “Great companies are built on great products”


Without beating around the bush, let’s get to the point and introduce you to a certification course by the name “Six Sigma” which is important for all quality professionals who want to accelerate their career in quality assurance.
