CII Goa organized the Fourth Quality Circle Competition for Goan Industry

The Confederation of Indian Industry, Goa State Office, organised the Fourth Edition of the ‘Quality Circle Competition – Goa State Level’ at Vivanta by Taj, Panaji Goa. The CII Quality Circle Competitions have always been a great learning opportunity for both, the companies who are competing, as well as the companies who join as participants. This competition is an opportunity to motivate workers to form Quality Circles within their companies and also providing them a platform to exchange ideas and share their experiences

Large and MSMEs from various sectors participated in this state level competition as a part of CII’s continuous thrust towards strengthening the quality movement in India. Senior managers, supervisors and management personnel availed of this opportunity to get an insight into some of the outstanding examples of Quality Circles and to understand how to promote and encourage the QC movement within their own organization.

Addressing the audience at the inaugural Mahendra Wani, Convenor CII Panel on Manufacturing and Location Head, Siemens Ltd, spoke about the concept of a Quality Circle, which is a participatory management technique that helps employees in solving problems related to their own jobs. Circles are formed of employees working together in an operation who meet at intervals to discuss problems of quality and to devise solutions for improvements. Employees who participate in quality circles usually receive training in formal problem-solving methods—such as brain-storming, pareto analysis, and cause-and-effect diagrams—and are then encouraged to apply these methods either to specific or general company problems. After completing an analysis, they often present their findings to management and then handle implementation of approved solutions.

He further mentioned the various initiatives carried out by CII, pertaining to creating and sustaining an environment conducive to the growth of industry. One such initiative that CII Goa State has begun is the Quality Circle Competition. He expressed his satisfaction over the overwhelming response received at the Fourth Edition of the QC Competition from the industries across Goa.

He stated that the robust participation in this event indicates that there is a widespread use of quality tools among companies in Goa which will ultimately result in delivering quality products to the end user. He applauded the huge amount of enthusiasm and passion displayed by all the participating teams and encouraged them to continue their concerted efforts to improve quality and productivity in the industry.
