Quality Assurance at NITI

With quality at the core of its operating principle, NITI established a QA division with the specific purpose of overseeing all aspects of its operations. At a very early stage in its development, NITI’s QA division developed its own internal manual of quality assurance systems based on, and guided by, internationally accepted Total Quality Management (TQM) principles, Six Sigma DMAIC and Kirkpatrick Training Evaluation Models. In implementing the principles and spirit of these models, NITI’s QA conducts robust and systematic internal and external reviews. These review checks include:

  • Trainee enrollment, procedures and support
  • Services, processes and administration
  • Employee selection, performance and development
  • Organizational impact
  • Customer feedback
  • Instructional delivery
  • Trainee assessment, grading and tracking system
  • Facilities, administration and support staff
  • Learning environment, equipment & Trainee support
  • Training Content and Curricular materials

In formulating actions plans and introducing improved changes, NITI QA uses a number of data gathering tools. Online surveys and questionnaires from all participants and stakeholders are key components in our improvement process. Internally, data collection includes but not limited to the following methods: document reviews, observations, inspections, interviews and focus groups.

At the same time, NITI’s QA division spearheads efforts to obtain national and international accreditations and quality awards. So far NITI is proud to have received the following quality stamps:
