Pleasant, Michigan where he also received the Distinguished Alumnus Award. Chowdhury became a naturalized citizen in The book was an early effort to demonstrate how companies "revitalized" their manufacturing practices with standardized quality management processes. According to the book jacket, the book was endorsed by quality management experts Dr. Armand Fiegenbaum, Philip B. Crosby , J. Power III , and Dr. Genichi Taguchi. Together, they co-authored a book titled Robust Engineering that was designed to help producers bring products to market at a faster rate and at lower cost, and yet maintain a high level of quality.
Posner , Sumantra Ghoshall, Christopher A. Bartlett, and Rosabeth Moss Kanter. Reported as a bestselling nonfiction book,  some reviewers noted that Chowdhury made complex topics quality management issues easy to understand by using a fictionalized story to model important concepts. According to the book, his goal was to present ideas and strategic solutions to "guide, influence and help" individuals and organizations with management and leadership challenges.
Among the contributors listed are Richard E. Boyatzis , James A. Champy , Allan R. Cohen, Jay A. Conger, Samuel A. Heneman, Harvey A. Hornstein, Andrew, Kakabadse , Manfred F. Kets de Vries , Edgar H. Schein , and Noel M. Design for Six Sigma helped draw attention to emerging DFSS methodology that simplifies an otherwise complex management theory. His latest book is Robust Optimization co-authored with Shin Taguchi. Quality must be the responsibility of every individual in all organizations.
For quality to be robust and sustainable, everyone in the organization must not only accept it, they must believe in it. Quality begins at the top. Without the commitment of leadership—and without them demonstrating that commitment in every aspect of their own lives, initiatives will stall or fail over time.
Everyone has a stake in Quality. Not only must quality involve everyone all the time, but in order to achieve robust and sustainable results, everyone must have a stake in its implementation and continuous improvement through peer reinforcement and other methods. Process power is about solving problems, developing ideas and solutions, and then perfecting those ideas and solutions. Improving quality using a cookie cutter managerial approach does not work. Every organization is unique.
Every problem has different issues. Every individual brings different knowledge, skills, and abilities. Therefore, the methods, processes, and procedures used to solve quality issues must be tailored to the specific situation. Modules on quality and reliability are designed on engineering processes and their impact on environment and life in general. Harvard University The Subir Chowdhury Fellowship on Quality and Economics Fellow is expected to engage in research examining the impact of people and process quality on the economic advancement of the United States.
This is a graduate Fellowship for the graduate students in the Harvard University to be given annually. It will also will conduct research, promote art and culture, and offer three scholarships, namely: The Subir Chowdhury Fellowship on Quality of Life in Bangladesh for graduate students; The Malini Chowdhury Fellowship on Bangladesh Studies for graduate students in any field that concentrates on Bangladesh studies; and The Subir Chowdhury Undergraduate Scholarship awarded to students concentrating in South and Southeast Asian Studies at Berkeley with matching awards from the Ford Challenge, a fund provided by a Berkeley donor to match undergraduate scholarship gifts.

The question is, of course, how will it be different? And how can we adopt these new techniques before every one else does and gain a competitive edge? The book is a collection of essays and speculations by the likes of Peter Senge, Sumantra Ghoshal, Barry Posner, and 23 more management heavyweights on the future of business, leadership, process, and organization. The breadth and diversity of the speculations make them almost impossible to summarize. If during the bulk of the 20th century management was about male things such as certainty, predictability, competition, domination, and winning, in the 21st century it will be concerned with more ladylike traits such as uncertainty, ambivalence, change, collaboration, paradoxes, cooperation--and winning. In his own provocative essay, Chowdury describes how new managers will have to become multiskilled, people-centered leaders whose most important task is inspiring the workforce with emotion and belief.
