The 14th NIQR National Convention was inaugurated today by B Muthuraman, Vice Chairman, Tata Steel. Delivering the keynote address he said, the quality movement, irrespective of the method, appears to be focused on fixing a problem but it should otherwise be looked at as an excellent opportunity to bring people together, empower, make them think and energise them.
