Panel Discussion this year was a special one because it was organized in commemoration of Birth Centenary of Prof. Dr. Kauro Ishikawa on the theme “Contribution and Philosophy of Prof. Dr. Kaoru Ishikawa on Quality management”. Initially, it was supposed to be moderated by Prof. Dr. Dinesh P. Chapagain himself, the man behind all quality movement led by QUEST-Nepal, but since he is currently residing in Manila, The Philippines, due to some serious health issues, the program was moderated by Principal Mr. Singa Lama, Executive and SQC Master Trainer at QUEST.
