Competition today is global, intense and accelerating. For long-term survival, organisations need to strive for nothing less than world-class standards of business excellence. In 1997, SPRING (Standards, Productivity and Innovation Board), Singapore launched the Singapore Quality Class (SQC) scheme to recognize organizations which have attained a commendable level of performance against well defined parameters. These parameters or framework includes 7 categories, namely, Leadership, Planning, Information, People, Processes, Customers and Results.
