Go for STAR – Winning IQC Awards
In FEB 2005, SPRING had introduced new judging criteria for the Innovation Quality Circle. It is no longer using the old WITS format and the old Fish bone concepts had been obsolete.
- What is the new IQC format then?
- How can we prepare our staffs for the next IQC convention?
With SPRING’s new definition, a GOLD award is a project which is worthy to showcase nationally, and the STAR Award internationally.
