He has been hailed by the New York Times as the “leading quality expert” and by Business Week as “The Quality Prophet.”  Over the course of his entire professional career, Chowdhury has been able to adeptly shape and direct the strategic thinking about “Quality” to senior executives, managers, engineers as well as other technical and non-technical personnel in companies large and small throughout the world. In addition, he has taken the subject of “Quality” and packaged and promoted it in such a way as to make it come alive, and be both available and useful for “all the people, all the time.”  The Conference Board Review described Chowdhury as “an excitable, enthusiastic evangelist for quality.”

Under his leadership, and using his ability to influence, teach and coach, he has managed to educate and guide his vast array of clients to embrace and implement quality methodologies such as QS-9000, Six Sigma, Design for Six Sigma, Robust Engineering, and LEO (Listen-Enrich-Optimize) to achieve significant improvements throughout their organizations.  Many of the world’s leading organizations have embraced his approach to Quality and have been able to bring their products and services to market at a more rapid pace and have been able to design products and services with problem prevention as a guiding premise.  In addition, using his teaching and methodologies, these organizations have been able to ensure the highest degree of quality at delivery; discovered solutions to problems that have saved millions and even billions of dollars, and, ultimately contributed to product and process innovation leading to increased revenue, market share and customer loyalty and satisfaction.
