Subir Chowdhury's Big Idea for the Thinker's 50, 2013

Subir Chowdhury's Big Idea for the Thinker's 50, 2013

Subir Chowdhury has been a thought leader in quality management strategy and methodology for more than 20 years. Currently Chairman and CEO of ASI Consulting Group, LLC, he leads Six Sigma and Quality Leadership implementation, and consulting and training efforts.

Subir’s work has earned him numerous awards and recognition. The New York Times cited him as a ”leading quality expert”; BusinessWeek hailed him as the “Quality Prophet.” The Conference Board Review described him as “an excitable, enthusiastic evangelist for quality.”

Subir has worked with many organizations across diverse industries including manufacturing, healthcare, food, and non-profit organizations. His client list includes major global corporations and industrial leaders such as American Axle, Berger Health Systems, Bosch, Caterpillar, Chrysler, Daewoo, Delphi Automotive Systems, Ford, General Motors, Hyundai Motor Company, ITT Industries, Johns Manville, Kaplan Professional, Kia Motors, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Loral Space Systems, Make It Right Foundation, Mark IV Automotive, Procter & Gamble, State of Michigan, Thomson Multimedia, TRW, Volkswagen, Xerox, and more. Under Subir’s leadership, ASI Consulting Group has helped hundreds of clients around the world save billions of dollars in recovered productivity and increased revenues.

Subir is the author of 13 books, including the international bestseller The Power of Six Sigma (Dearborn Trade, 2001), which has sold more than a million copies worldwide and been translated into more than 20 languages. Design for Six Sigma (Kaplan Professional, 2002) was the first book to popularize the “DFSS” concept.

His book, the critically acclaimed The Ice Cream Maker (Doubleday, 2005) introduced LEO® (Listen, Enrich, Optimize), a flexible management strategy that brings the concept of quality to every member of an organization. The book was formally recognized and distributed to every member of the 109th Congress. The LEO process continues to be implemented in many organizations. His most recent book, The Power of LEO (McGraw-Hill, 2011) was an Inc. Magazine bestseller. A follow-up to The Ice Cream Maker, the book shows organizations how the LEO methodology can be integrated into a complete quality management system.

Thinkers50, sponsored by Harvard Business Review, named Subir as one of the “50 Most Influential Management Thinkers in the World”. He is an honorary member of the World Innovation Foundation (WIF) and has been inducted into the Engineering, Science and Technology Hall of Fame and the Automotive Hall of Fame. Subir is a recipient of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Gold Medal, the Society of Automotive Engineers’ (SAE) Henry Ford II Distinguished Award for excellence in Automotive Engineering and the American Society of Quality’s first Philip Crosby Medal for authoring the most influential book on Quality.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security presented the ‘Outstanding American by Choice Award’ to Subir for his contributions to the field of quality and management.

In 2014, University of California at Berkeley established the Subir & Malini Chowdhury Center for Bangladesh Studies. The Center will award graduate fellowships, scholarships, and research grants that focus on ways to improve the quality of life for the people of Bangladesh.

Each year the Subir Chowdhury Fellowship on Quality and Economics is awarded by both Harvard University and London School of Economics and Political Science to a doctoral student to research and study the impact of quality in the economic advancement of a nation. The SAE International established the ‘Subir Chowdhury Medal of Quality Leadership’, an annual award that recognizes those individuals who promote innovation and expand the impact of quality in mobility engineering, design and manufacturing.

The Subir & Malini Chowdhury Foundation focuses on the education of those less fortunate in the world. The foundation helped found the Global Quality Awareness (GQA) campaign, a worldwide initiative to raise awareness of quality in all areas of life. The Foundation also provided a lifetime endowment for theFrances Hesselbein Medal for Excellence in Leadership and Service, awarded annually to a United States Military Academy West Point cadet who demonstrates “excellence in mentorship and leadership by example.”

Born in Chittagong, Bangladesh in 1967, Subir received his undergraduate degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, India and his graduate degree in Industrial Management from Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. He has received Distinguished Alumnus Awards from both universities, as well as an honorary doctorate of engineering from the Michigan Technological University.
