ICRISAT Happenings 1830-1, 29 November 2019
ICRISAT’s Genebank recently observed ‘World Quality Day’ with a session on Quality Management for its staff. The session was held to strengthen processes in line with FAO standards for genebanks. The Genebank, which is celebrating 40 years of its establishment this year, observed the day on November 14, the second Thursday of the month designated for the day. The day is observed world over in November, which in turn is observed as ‘World Quality Month’. A session by Mr Muzamil Baig, Quality Manager, Genebank, shed light on the concepts that drive quality into processes, including organizing workspaces, along the lines of the ‘5S’ and Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle.
