Balaji S. Reddie is the founder of The Deming Forum India and was recently honored by the National Centre for Quality Management for 20 years of contribution to the field of Quality in India. An engineer by trade, Balaji became highly interested in the Deming Philosophy after a chance introduction to the founder of the British Deming Association, Dr. Henry R. Neave, who became Balaji’s mentor. Since then, Balaji has introduced thousands to Deming’s teachings, including presenting papers for private and public audiences, and serving for 10 years as an Adjunct Professor in management colleges with a focus on production, operations, and supply chains. He is currently employed with an educational group, the Sri Balaji Society, in his hometown of Pune, India. (Learn more about Balaji in this December 2017 interview on The Deming Institute Podcast.)
Balaji's contributions have been featured in textbooks and coursework on Quality and the Deming Philosophy. He holds a Degree in Electrical Engineering from COEP (the Government College of Engineering in Pune), and a Master of Science in Quality Management from BITS (Birla Institute of Technology & Science).
