Venu Srinivasan gets Ishikawa-Kano award

Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on March 12, 2018

Venu Srinivasan, Chairman of TVS Motor Company, received the Ishikawa-Kano award in Hong Kong on Wednesday.

He told Business Line that he was dedicating it to his colleagues at TVS Motor and to his Japanese professors, Washio and Tsuda. The two other winners for 2012 are Dong Mingzhu President, Gree Electric Appliances, andLiang Haishan, Executive Vice-President, Haier Group.

The Ishikawa-Kano award, instituted by the Asian Network for Quality, is named after two eminent thinkers of quality management, Kaoru Ishikawa and Noriaki Kano.

While the former is considered the pioneer of total quality management, Kano has made substantial contributions to its concept and practice.

Srinivasan’s efforts to promote quality awareness resulted in Sundaram Clayton (of which he is Chairman) becoming the first Indian company to be awarded the Deming Prize in 1998, and the Japan Quality Medal in 2002. The same year saw TVS Motor win the Deming Prize.
